Three rushers found their way to the end zone as the host Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Miami Dolphins 31-18 in a preseason game on Saturday night.

Travis Etienne Jr., D’Ernest Johnson and JaMychal Hasty each scored a rushing touchdown for Jacksonville (3-0), which accumulated 413 yards of total offense. C.J. Beathard and Trevor Lawrence each completed 8 of 10 passes, with Beathard throwing for a team-high 134 yards and a TD.

Miami’s Skylar Thompson threw for 135 yards on 15-for-24 passing, but he was intercepted twice. Tua Tagovailoa went 4-for-6 with 67 yards. Chris Brooks scored twice on the ground for the Dolphins (1-2).

Jacksonville led 24-6 after Beathard threw a 74-yard scoring strike to Tim Jones, but a pair of TDs from Brooks sandwiched Hasty’s touchdown to pull Miami within 13. The Dolphins failed to convert two-point conversions after both of Brooks’ tallies.
