Jacksonville Jaguars show maturity, toughness in win – Bleacher Report

"The Jaguars took a beating from Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill, who completed 30 of 44 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns. However, the defense stepped up against the run and held strong late to allow the offense to re-find its rhythm to go down and give kicker Jason Myers an easy 28-yard field goal to go up with 40 seconds left."

"Myers kicked a 27-yarder in the first quarter, nailed a 58-yarder right before halftime and then added the game-winner from 28 yards with 40 seconds left. He also kicked two extra points.Myers showed a good leg in camp. The big question was how he would handle pressure kicks with the game on the line.He passed that test Sunday with his first game-winner."

Keys to the Miami Dolphins’ loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars – Miami Herald

"Blake Bortles, now in his second season out of UCF, struggled last week after being sacked five times by Carolina. Sunday was a different deal — at least early on — as Bortles looked much more poised against what was at times a weak Miami rush. The Dolphins failed to record a single sack. In the opening half, Bortles tossed a pair of touchdown passes (both to Allen Robinson). He ended the half completing 12 of 17 for 186 yards with a rating of 145.7. Bortles came out firing in the second half, hooking up with Allen Hurns (UM) for 26 yards on a third-and-16 from the 14. He passed for just 87 yards in the second half to finish with 273 yards. Sunday was Bortles’ first NFL game with two touchdowns and no interceptions."
