Miami Dolphins defeat Jaguars 14-10

JACKSONVILLE -- The Dolphins did it. They got over .500 for the first time this season.

It took some excellent defense -- particularly in the fourth quarter -- and some timely offense. But the Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 14-10 Sunday to improve their record to 7-6 and remain in the chase for an AFC playoff berth.

So maybe it wasn't revenge for 62-7, but the desperate Dolphins will take it.

They got a 108-yard performance from Ricky Williams. Chad Henne had his moments also, at one point completing a team record tying 17 consecutive passes. He finished 21 of 29 for 220 yards.

The defense, meanwhile, limited Maurice Jones-Drew to 59 yards on 18 carries. There were no open receivers throughout. The Dolphins kept the Jags from converting on a couple of desperation fouth-down attempts.

It wasn't pretty. But the Dolphins will most definitely take it.

Your thoughts?

I'm thinking you have a 265lb beast like polite why are we not using him on 3rd and three when we see our passing game stalling??? He's good for at least 2 or 3 yds and on 4th and 1 we know he is money.

we should give some kudos to the QB of the future.. He is more accurate then some of the old guys in the league.

Have to give the defense credit. They came up strong during the 4th quarter again. Offense did just enough to win, or hold onto the ball to use the clock up at least. Too bad, it was looking like Henne and company were going to run up some great stats until they ran into a wall of marsh mellow it seems, in the second half. If Miami's defense continues to play like this they will be playoff bound.

Soliai's Mother: please stop commenting. Paul Soliai was OK, but not fantastic. I know your proud and all, but i don't care about Mt Pineapple.

Carlito, Why are you so angry today, your boy henne the hero had a good day.. REJOYCE...

Zack your a jerk!

Where's Ron Stark?

Where's Jarvis Williams for crying out loud?

Bad teams find a way to lose...good teams find a way to win

Eric Kumerow?

Cuban,

I am not angry... I am very happy, I had great day of surfing in the morning and Dolphins winning in afternoon... I just don't want to here about your pineapples or bananas

Where's the cross dressing,Hemorphidite MARC, haven't seen him/her for a couple days, things most be busy in Orlando's gay district..(not that there's anything wrong with that..)

John Bosa anyone?

Wife got me to promise her dinner out if we won.. so, am off to shower and chow down on some ribs!

Go Dolphins! We believe!

I know this sounds crazy, but do you think Sparano may be holding back Wake to keep his stats down, so he can be re-upped with a new longer term deal?

You're right, you are carzy.

No problem my Costa Rican amigo, no more banana's and pineapples......i'am starting to believe carlito....

Ugly win, but a win is a win. Go Dolphins.

Thank God the Defense showed up and played big today. I wonder how Ricky is feeling? He took some serious shots to the head and body in that game.

Cuban,

You are good sport!

Go Dolphins!!!!

Playoffs here we come!!!

Henne the Hero tied team record today of 17 straight completions

Marc , was on the live blog earlier.

Mark in Toronto - Miami is in the 7th spot. The Ravens are ahead of them on conference record. We both have the same amount of losses, but they currently have more conference wins.

Ugly but a win is a win. Fins win out and they're in. Tough games ahead but winnable if we don't beat ourselves.

I'm going to ignore these comments down here...

The dolphins won, plain and simple. However, for improvement, those turnovers almost put us at a 6-7 record. Great credit to our defense. A hot Tennessee team is next...

I've got tickets the Dolphin/Titans game in Nashville next Sunday. I catch hell there wearing my Dolphin colors everytime I go. I just hope we can contain Chris Johnson. He is a helluva player and has already scored two TD's today against the struggling Rams.

Cuban and carlito are both Hardcore Fans!

Phuuuummmmmp!!! Your victories always give me a nice good fart!

Knew a Douchebag would show up!

Phuuuummmmmp!!! Your victories always give me a nice good fart!

You must have farted quite a bit when we swept your candy@sses!

Tenn. will be tough, esspecally there runner Johnson, He's a beast.....and there defense is starting to jell since that beat down to the cheatriots...

Kyphinfan,

Dolphins have contained

MJD, Michael Turner, Thomas Jones, Deangelo Williams, etc

I hope they can continue this with Chris Johnson, I am also worry about VInce Young, as rushing qb always hurt the fins d

Great Job PHINS!!! Turnovers were killers. We had 4 drives that could have easily been scores. I'm glad for the win. maybe their luck is turning.

No focus on the titans. Another tough one on the road.

Tortured Dolphin aka jet turbulence....

Po White Trash,

I like Cuban Menace, but he say "he is starting to believe" he has also said he rooted for the hated Jets when Wanny and Saban were here... I would like to petition you that Cuban Menace is not yet a "hardcore fan" as you say, but could be well on his way with good behavior

PHUUUMMMMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tortured Dolphin, gonna suck watching us in the playoffs while the wets are spanking it at home.

PHUUUMMMMP!! ANOTHER FART.........PHUUUMMMP!!

Chad is the real deal. Hartline is for real. Bess is solid, camarillo is clutch. That said we need a number one receiver. Oh did i mention that crowdervis a bum? Oh, solid effort by Bell today, the O line gave pretty good protection too.
