Bortles' mistakes cost Jaguars in loss against Dolphins

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- Rookie Blake Bortles had two interceptions returned for touchdowns, costly mistakes that helped the Miami Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-13 on Sunday.

Louis Delmas and Brent Grimesscored onthe turnovers for the Dolphins (4-3), who won consecutive games for the first time this season.

Ryan Tannehill's 3-yard pass to Rishard Matthews made it 24-6 late in the third quarter and gave the Dolphins a comfortable cushion in a game they could have easily trailed by double digits.

The Jaguars (1-7) dominated the first half, but trailed 10-3 at the break because of miscues. Bortles was the culprit, continuing a trend that started when he took over the starting job last month.

Bortles had three turnovers Sunday, giving him six in the last two weeks and 13 in six games. Four of those have been interceptions returned for touchdowns.
