MIAMI (AP) Even when the Miami Dolphins had David Garrard scrambling 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage, they failed to stop him.

Garrard did his best work on the run Sunday, throwing for 229 yards and 2 scores to help the Jacksonville Jaguars beat Miami 24-10.

The Jaguars (7-5) won for only the second time on the road and ended a four-game winning streak by the Dolphins (5-7), likely ensuring Miami will miss the playoffs for the fifth year in a row.

Garrard led Jacksonville on touchdown drives of 95 and 91 yards, while Miami's Joey Harrington threw 2 costly interceptions and was sacked 4 times.

Poor tackling also hurt the Dolphins. George Wrighster bounced off a defender on a 16-yard scoring reception, and Maurice Drew broke 3 tackles on a 32-yard touchdown run, the rookie's ninth score this season.

Garrard also was sacked 4 times, but he completed 16 of 22 attempts and ran for three 1st downs. Matt Jones made 6 catches for 128 yards and a score.
