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.

nite,dreams of playoffs

Glad for Win, but the truth is the Fins offense
played horrible the second half. They can't
afford to play like that the next three games.
Defense was very good, but must stop giving
up "big play". Where is Ted G.? Bottom
line the Dolphins still have a chance...

Willy, Please refrain from calling me Gopats or aloco, Stop trying to be more clueless then NJ PHIN FAN.....

cuban menace you are aloco and gopats you swine liar!!!!!!!

Wow Superbowl here we come!

Got to love this teams heart! They have had every excuse to mail it in this year and they just keep on fighting. Starting QB gone, Starting running back gone, leagues toughest schedule, tough losses to some of the best in the league, starting nose tackle out, center out, loss in Buffalo caught looking ahead to key game with NE. Yet here they are with a legit chance to win out and make the playoffs! A credtit to the toughness Parcells looks for when he puts together a football team!
