Thoughts on Dolphins 27, Jaguars 26

Some bullet-point thoughts on the Jaguars’ 27-26 home loss to Miami on Saturday night.
- In their first action as Jaguars, Tyson Alualu and Aaron Kampman combined to sack Chad Henne on the Dolphins’ first play from scrimmage. The Jaguars had five sacks.
- Rashad Jennings blocked a punt in the end zone for a safety at the start of the game. Jennings has gotten raves as a secondary running back (he turned three carries into 26 yards) and a big special-teams role only enhances his value.
- The Jaguars pieced together a 10-play, 78-yard touchdown drive in the first quarter, when David Garrard fared well.
- Jacksonville was three-for-three in the red zone and three-for-three on goal-to-go snaps.
- Anthony Fasano was wide open on his first touchdown catch, a 55-yard catch and run, even before Brandon Marshall blocked Derek Cox and Sean Considine out of pursuit.
- The Jaguars missed chances to tackle Ronnie Brown short of the goal line on his 10-yard touchdown reception.
- A hit by Charles Grant to Garrard’s chest knocked him out of the game, but the quarterback said it just took him a little while to catch his breath.
- Eight penalties for 68 yards.
