Winners

1. Jakeem Grant: Four catches. 141 yards. A touchdown. In the first half alone. We knew Grant was electric. He’s now dependable too.

2. David Fales: If this was his Dolphins swan song, it was a great way to go out. Fales found Grant and MarQueis Gray for touchdowns before intermission.

3. Chase Allen: He’s been the Dolphins’ most reliable linebacker this preseason. Allen added another nine tackles to his tally before halftime, and seems destined to make the team.

Losers

1. Isaac Asiata: If he wasn’t on scholarship this year, the rookie lineman probably wouldn’t make the team. He whiffed on a block on a screen pass late in the first half.

2. Leonte Carroo: Just as Grant’s arrow has gone up, Carroo’s has gone down. He misjudged a would-be touchdown early on and then was largely invisible.

3. Andrew Franks: He’s been reliable for most of the preseason, but Miami’s kicker pushed a 45-yard field goal right in the third quarter.
