Dolphins vs. Jaguars 2013 final score: Blaine Gabbert looks rusty, Chad Henne plays well in 27-3 Miami win

Mike Ehrmann

The Miami Dolphins cruised to a relatively easy victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, winning, 27-3.

The Miami Dolphins managed a solid 27-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Friday's preseason action. Starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill played his part effectively, completing 5 of 9 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown before giving way to backup Matt Moore.

Moore struggled at times, throwing an interception late in the third quarter before letting Pat Devlin get a crack at running the offense.

For the Jaguars, the quarterback picture didn't get much clearer. Blaine Gabbert was the starter, but looked rusty after missing a good chunk of recent practices. Gabbert completed just 5 of 10 passes for 19 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

At that point, Chad Henne took over and completed 8 of 11 passes for 87 yards. Gabbert will likely get the benefit of the doubt after missing some practice time, but it was a strong outing for Henne, who is making a bid for the starting role.

Miami tight end Dustin Keller caught the only touchdown of the game, a 22-yard pass from Tannehill early on. Keller was an offseason addition and is likely the starter at tight end going forward.

Did they cover?

The line was incredibly small, with some books having both teams at even money and others having the Dolphins favored by a point and a half. Obviously, the Dolphins covered.
