Ryan Fitzpatrick was having the most fun in the Miami Dolphins’ 31-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

The 37-year-old quarterback barely acted like the oldest player on the pitch. He finished 18-for-20 with 160 passing yards. He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in the win. It was Miami’s first win of the season after losing to the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills to start 2020.

Fitzpatrick led the Dolphins on a 12-game practice on their way to their first score of the game, ending with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Preston Williams. The veteran would find Mike Gesicki for his second touchdown pass in the second quarter.

He ran for a score of 1 yard in the third to build Miami’s lead to an insurmountable 28-7 lead.

Jacksonville tried to make a comeback in the fourth quarter with a rushed touchdown from James Robinson. But too many turnovers and a blocked attack hampered most of Jacksonville’s practice.

The Dolphins’ defense gave Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II a ton of problems.

Minshew was out of DJ Chark to get into the game and couldn’t get into a real beat. He finished the game 30 in 24 with 275 passing yards and a late interception. He also lost a fumble.

Robinson was his first target. He had six catches for 83 yards. He also rushed for two touchdowns and finished with 46 yards.
