Pair of pick-sixes lifts Dolphins to victory over Jags


On what could be defined as an "off-day" for the Miami Dolphins' offense, the team's opportunistic defense pulled through in a big way.

The Dolphins rode a pair of pick-sixes--an 81-yarder by Louis Delmas and a 22-yarder by Brent Grimes--to a 27-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.

A third-quarter interception by Grimes all but iced it for Miami, which recorded its second straight  win to get to 4-3.

Offensively, Miami came out flat with three straight three-and-outs, and the defense gave up some big yardage in the first half, though the turnovers for scores overshadowed the early lackluster work.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 16 of 29 passes for 196 yards, with a touchdown pass to Rishard Matthews and an interception. Mike Wallace had two catches for 59 yards, and Lamar Miller tallied 78 yards on 14 rushes.
