Fitzpatrick has only attempted six passes this half, but he didn’t have to do much work given what he did in the first half and what his defense has been able to do all night. He’s also gotten enough from his running game, which has gained 122 yards on 32 carries.

James Robinson has 329 yards from scrimmage through three games. That’s the most for an undrafted rookie in his first three career games since 1950.
Jaguars offense found its groove, but are now going to need a stop by their defense. Jacksonville are going to have to contain Myles Gaskin, who has 40 yards on 14 carries and five catches for 29 yards. I also expect to see more Matt Breida, who has just three carries so far. Breida came up with a nice third down conversion on Sunday, taking a quick pitch from Fitzpatrick and getting to the outside. Expect the Dolphins to try to get to the outside again if faced with a similar situation now.

Jaguars defense has played a lot better in this half, with Josh Allen registering his first sack of the season on Miami’s last offensive possession. But is it too little too late? That will likely be the case if the Jaguars can’t score now. Jacksonville will have the ball at their own 49 when the drive begins. Expect more work for Robinson, who has 16 touches for 128 yards thus far. 
Looks like Jamal Perry didn’t make a clean catch, so the Jaguars will be looking at a fourth down when play resumes. That incomplete pass could end up being the nail in the coffin if Jacksonville can’t convert here. 

Conley was wide open on that second down pass. Yes, Minshew was pressured by Van Not, but that was an easy touchdown pass that would have been a 14-point game heading into the fourth quarter. Minshew 16-of-23 for 153 yards through three quarters. Robinson is still his most productive receiver, with five catches for 73 yards. He’s been the vocal point on this drive.

Flores’ decision to punt on Dolphins’ last possession looking like the right call now. Pinned the Jaguars deep, got a turnover, and now lead 28-7 following Fitzpatrick’s touchdown run. Dolphins coaching staff has done a great job tonight, especially Chan Gailey, who was enjoying retirement before being talked into joining Miami.

Jaguars Cam Robinson has been ejected after making contact with an official. Last few moments have not been good for Jacksonville. Will Richardson will be the Jaguars’ new LT for the rest of the game.
First turnover of the game goes Miami’s way. Kyle Van Noy strips Minshew and the Dolphins are now looking at a potential nail in the coffin if they put up points here.

Not really sure why Flores went for the punt there. Jaguars haven’t been able to stop them all night. Have a sizable lead and great field position thanks to a stellar punt, but wasn’t as aggressive as I thought he’d be in that situation.
The Dolphins are 5-for-8 on third down after that Jacksonville stop. Brian Flores is smart to go for it on 4th down here.
Doug Marrone said to Eric Andrews that one of his goals is to not panic. So you should still expect to see a steady diet of runs with Robinson. Minshew will continue to throw short and take what Miami’s defense gives him. As long as they don’t turn the ball over, the Jaguars should be able to score some points this half. That being said, if they can’t make plays downfield with their passing game, and if their defense can’t get stops/turnovers, they’re going to fall to 1-2.

Dolphins halftime notesFitzmagic: Ryan Fitzpatrick was absolutely fantastic in the first half. He completed his first 12 passes (a career-high) and has 127 yards and two touchdowns on the night. He’s also rushed for 24 yards. Running game strong: Miami has been able to average 5.1 yards per carry, but Myles Gaskin hasn’t been particularly efficient rushing for just 33 yards on 10 carries. Extending drives: The Dolphins have converted on four of their six third down attempts while also converting a fourth down try as well. Have over a five-minute advantage in time of possession. Good downfield coverage: The secondary has been playing well, forcing Gardner Minshew to check down on a number of his drop backs. Need to stop Robinson: Miami has had no answer to Jags running back James Robinson, who is averaging 5.1 yards per rush and has one catch for 24 yards.  
Some first half notes: Dolphins scored on their first three possessions for the first time since 2011. They tallied 17 first downs, 218 total yards, were 4-of-6 on third down and were 3-of-3 in the red zone. Ryan Fitzpatrick was the start of the first half, completing his first 11 passes with a pair of touchdown throws. The Jaguars defense has struggled to figure out Chan Gailey’s offense, while their offense has not adjusted to the absence of D.J. Shark.
