Dolphins 12, Jaguars 9
At Miami, Ernest Wilford caught a 33-yard touchdown pass against his former team for the game's lone touchdown, and the Dolphins beat Jacksonville.
It was only a preseason game, and Wilford's big play came against reserves, but it suggested his recent move to tight end might work. He made only three catches for 25 yards as a wide receiver last season after signing a four-year contract for $6 million guaranteed.
Wilford juked past a defender and ran the final 15 yards after catching Chad Henne's pass. Henne played about half the game and looked sharp, going 7-for-11 for 94 yards with one interception.
Quarterbacks Chad Pennington and David Garrard came out after one quarter. Miami's Pennington went 4-for-7 for 38 yards and led a 35-yard drive that ended with a field goal.
Garrard went 4-for-7 for 22 yards in three series. He encountered heavy pressure and led the Jaguars to only one first down.
