Tannehill, Dolphins roll past Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ryan Tannehill connected with Dustin Keller for a 22-yard touchdown, and the Miami Dolphins thumped the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-3 in a preseason game Friday night.

Tannehill played a little longer and a lot smoother in his second preseason game. The Jaguars can only hope Blaine Gabbert will do the same.

Tannehill completed 5 of 9 passes for 75 yards, getting things rolling late in the first quarter. He connected with Keller for a 24-yard gain and then found the former New York Jets tight end five plays later for a score. Safety Chris Prosinski looked lost on the play, the first of many mistakes for the rebuilding Jaguars.

The Jaguars finished with four turnovers.

Gabbert was hoping to make a strong impression in Jacksonville's preseason opener. But Gabbert looked a lot like he did in his first two seasons. He completed 5 of 10 passes for 19 yards, with an interception.
