It was a tough week for Florida teams all around, as the Dolphins, Jags, and Bucs all put one in the L column.
The Miami Dolphins went into their second straight overtime game, and were handed their second straight loss. Despite Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill throwing for 431 yards, 253 of those to Brian Hartline, the Dolphins fell to Jay Feely and the Arizona Cardinals in overtime and dropped one 24-21. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin syas it’s been a rough road
The Dolphins weren’t the only Florida team to get downed on a late field goal as the Tampa Bay Bucs went down to the Washington Redskins on a Billy Cundiff field goal with three seconds left in the game. Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for 323 yards and picked up a rushing touchdown while Bucs QB Josh Freeman threw for 299 yards, a touchdown and a pick. Bucs head coach Greg Schiano says this team is better then people realize.
The Jacksonville Jaguar game wasn’t so close. The game started on a high note for Jacksonville, as Gator great Fred Taylor was inducted to the Jags Hall of Fame. But after that it was one way traffic for the Bengals as they get the win 27-10. Rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon lead the way for the Jags with six receptions for 48 yards, but running back Maurice Jones-Drew was limited to 38 yards on 13 carries. Jones-Drew says the team needs to be more even offensively.
That’s Week 4 for the Florida NFL teams.
