MIAMI GARDENS Oliver Ekman-Larsson Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens rookie Lamar Jackson gave his friends and family plenty to cheer about Saturday, even if he didn’t give them tickets.
The South Florida native led touchdown possessions of 84, 62 and 73 yards against mostly deep reserves as Baltimore rallied past the Miami Dolphins 27-10.
“This isn’t college where I get free tickets,” Jackson said, “so everyone who came here tonight paid for their own tickets. My mom watched from home on TV.”
Jackson entered the game at the start of the second half and had his best performance yet for the Ravens. He went 7 for 10 for 98 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 39 yards on three carries, including a 19-yard scoring run.
“My decision-making is getting better,” Jackson said. “I’m working my way up. I feel like I’m doing pretty good, but there’s still room for improvement.”
Coach John Harbaugh was encouraged to see signs of progress from Jackson.
“Today was kind of his breaking-out in the game,” Harbaugh said. “We’ve seen it in practice where he’s done some really good things. We hadn’t really seen it in the game yet. He handled himself well.”
Kenyan Drake sparked one scoring drive with a 30-yard run and another with a 36-yard reception for the Dolphins Authentic Nail Yakupov Jersey , whose starters reached the end zone for the first time this preseason.
Ryan Tannehill fumbled twice early, and the Dolphins drew boos from the small crowd when they went three-and-out on the first series. But the offense began to click in the second quarter against a mix of Ravens starters and reserves, and Tannehill finished 11 of 16 for 115 yards.
Danny Amendola made a nifty cutback to juke past two defensive backs and score on a 16-yard pass from Tannehill. It was the first touchdown by Miami’s starters during the preseason in 10 possessions.
On the next series, Tannehill hit Drake deep for a big gain to set up a field goal, and the Dolphins led 10-3 at halftime before both teams emptied their benches.
Tannehill said the offense is on track for the start of the season.
“It was good to finally get the ball in the end zone,” he said. “We’re heading in the right direction.”
While starters for Miami saw their most extensive action this month, among those not playing for the Ravens were quarterback Joe Flacco, their top three wide receivers, three offensive linemen, safety Eric Weddle Brock McGinn Jersey Kids , and linebackers Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley.
Robert Griffin III, battling to make the Ravens’ roster, played the first half. He went 9 for 15 for 66 yards and carried five times for 41 yards while playing with a mix of starters and reserves.
Brock Osweiler and David Fales, battling for the Dolphins’ backup QB job, both struggled and threw an interception.
“There’s room for improvement for sure,” coach Adam Gase said. “But it’s hard to put it all on them when you get the ball and you’re not expecting it, or we’re not blocking guys. That’s why it’s hard to evaluate quarterbacks at times in preseason games.”
OUT OF POSITION
Miami linebacker Kiko Alonso made a third-down tackle, flipped over, became disoriented and went to the wrong bench. When Harbaugh gestured him to the other sideline , Alonso trotted across the field and reached the Dolphins bench wearing a sheepish grin. He said he was unhurt.
The Ravens’ Justin Tucker was wide left on a 51-yard field goal try and had another 51-yarder blocked. The most accurate kicker in NFL history is 0 for 4 beyond 50 yards during the exhibition season.
The Ravens dedicated the win to the family of receivers coach Bobby Engram following the death Saturday of his 20-year-old daughter Jonathan Quick Jersey , Bobbi.
Robert Quinn and Dolphins WRs Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson again protested social injustice during the anthem. Quinn raised his right fist, and Stills and Wilson kneeled in front of their bench.

Four women sexually assaulted by Canada’s former national ski coach when they were adolescents said Monday he robbed them of much of their childhood.
Genevieve Simard, Gail Kelly, Amelie Frederique-Gagnon and Anna Prchal attended a news conference more than 20 years after the repeated abuse.
”My childhood was stolen,” Simard said. ”Skiing was my passion. I aspired to great things. I had dreams and skiing was my life. The sexual abuse I suffered completely destroyed my self-confidence.”
The women won the right last week to be identified after a judge granted their request to lift a publication ban.
Bertrand Charest was found guilty a year ago of 37 of the 57 sex-related charges. He received a 12-year prison term and is appealing both his conviction and sentence. He was denied bail last year.
The convictions involved nine of the 12 women who accused him of crimes that occurred more than 20 years ago when the victims and alleged victims were between ages 12 and 19.
Quebec court Judge Sylvain Lepine said the victims were still suffering from what he called ”serious health consequences” from the abuse that took place between 1991 and 1998.
Kelly said Charest took advantage of her passion for skiing and ”my dream quickly turned into a nightmare.” She said she has three young children and would never let them compete at the provincial or national level in any sport under the current structure.
”It is urgent that we put in place a system that allows our children to be safe http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-brad-hunt-jersey ,” she said. ”I don’t want anyone to go through what I did: being manipulated, denigrated and belittled.”
”I used to be funny, smiling and very sociable,” she added. ”But because of this manipulator, I became sad and withdrawn and someone who felt like a complete loser.”
