Here's a look at how every unit on the Dolphins performed in the 24-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

QUARTERBACK — Jay Fiedler didn't have a very good day, but he also didn't get a lot of help from his receivers. Perhaps Fiedler's best play came when he threw the final block on Ricky Williams' 13-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Fiedler slightly overthrew a wide open James McKnight on what could have been a game-clinching play in the fourth quarter, although the argument could be made that McKnight could have caught the ball. But he was under pressure all day. Grade: C

RUNNING BACKS — Williams had some good runs, but he also made two very bad plays with the Dolphins nursing a touchdown lead in the last four minutes. First, he allowed himself to get tackled out of bounds to stop the clock and then he dropped an easy pass. Travis Minor had a couple of nice plays. Rob Konrad was injured (knee) early and was replaced by Obafemi Ayanbadejo, who was a factor in the passing game. But Ayanbadejo had a holding call and he also fumbled at the Jaguars 3-yard line, although he was bailed out when Randy McMichael recovered and strolled into the end zone. Grade: C

RECEIVERS — Ugh. There weren't many spectacular catches and too many drops. There was the drop by McKnight on the long pass, another drop by McKnight, McMichael also failed to come up with a catchable ball down the middle. Not a good day. Grade: C-

OFFENSIVE LINE — Way too many penalties. Way too much penetration allowed. It seemed Jay Fiedler was hurried every time he dropped back to pass. It didn't look like anybody on the line had a good day. Grade: D

DEFENSIVE LINE — Outstanding, simply outstanding. Jason Taylor was everywhere, with a sack, a tip that led to a Jeff Zgonina interception, a forced fumble. Adewale Ogunleye also was a constant presence in the Jaguars backfield. The interior of the line, minus the absent Tim Bowens, helped hold Fred Taylor in check. Grade: A

LINEBACKERS — The Dolphins played without Junior Seau but helped contribute to anoth good day for the run defense. Morlon Greenwood came up with the initial hit on a key fourth-down stop. The linebackers did have their problems in coverage, though. Grade: B-

SECONDARY — This group is the best in the league and proved it again today. Sam Madison was awesome, with two picks and a fumble recovery. Sammy Knight forced a fumble. The coverage was solid all day. The only negative here were a couple of pass interference calls on Brock Marion. Grade: A-

SPECIAL TEAMS — The Dolphins coverage teams continue to do a great job, and Olindo Mare's kickoffs continue to be very impressive. Matt Turk had a good punting, while Charlie Rogers had two decent kickoff returns. On the down side, there was a roughing-the-kicker penalty on Brendon Ayanbadejo that gave Jacksonville a first down. Grade: B-
