Jay Cutler shows big-play ability with Miami Dolphins' offense

The Miami Dolphins offense put up enough points to come away with a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Thursday night's preseason game, but they instead fell to the Eagles 38-31.

In their first preseason game, Miami (1-1) defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-20.

Cutler completed five of eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown on Thursday in a little more than one quarter of action against the Philadelphia Eagles. It would take significant pressure off Cutler's shoulders if Ajayi can build on his breakout performance from a year ago when he tallied 1,272 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. A miscommunication in the Dolphins' secondary resulted in Smith getting wide open for a 50-yard touchdown bomb on Philly's opening drive. Jakeem Grant had a 69-yard touchdown reception from Brandon Doughty in the third quarter when he caught a quick slant and broke a tackle around the 40-yard line.

The Dolphins will need to shore up communication between their cornerbacks and safeties if they wish to prevent explosive plays against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1.

Wentz's first touchdown was not a ideal throw, but it displayed his arm strength, as he hit receiver Torrey Smith 50-yards down the field in stride for the score despite some pressure. Philadelphia's starting signal-caller finished 6-of-10 for 129 yards and two touchdowns, but his interception set up a second Jay Ajayi touchdown when Jordan Phillips returned it deep into Eagles' territory.
