NFL playoffs: Jaguars beat Dolphins 62-7 on this day

On this day in the year 2000, the Jaguars had one of their most memorable days in playoff history, beating the Miami Dolphins 62-7.

The Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Miami Dolphins 62-7 in the 2000 NFL Playoffs Divisional round on this day 14 years ago. It was the biggest victory in Jaguars history and one of the most dominating playoff wins in NFL history.

Taylor's 90-yard run

The Jaguars were one of the most dominating teams during the 1999 NFL regular season and that carried over at then Alltell Stadium, as the Jaguars jumped all over the Dolphins from the start with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Mark Brunell to Jimmy Smith. Dolphins great Dan Marino was picked off on the very next play leading to a field goal.

A few plays later, Fred Taylor broke off a 90-yard touchdown run, Tony Brackens returned a fumble for a touchdown and the route was on to the tune of 24-0 in the first quarter of play.

It didn't stop however, as the Jaguars poured on the pressure and the points ending the day winning 62-7. Taylor ran for 135 yards, Brunell threw just nine passes before being replaced for Jay Fiedler. Fiedler himself threw for 172 yards and two touchdowns. Marino finished the day with just 95 passing yards on 25 attempts before being knocked out of the game with an injury, which ultimately would be the final game of his Hall of Fame career.
