Robinson was a part of the pile fighting for the ball and made contact with an official who was trying to pull players off of each other while on the ground. The contact didn’t appear to be malicious on the surface, but Robinson was assessed a penalty and thrown out of the game.
NFL fans watching the game were a bit perplexed over the decision to eject the big offensive lineman.
“I saw the official jump in there, and the official told me afterwards he jumped on him [while in the pile] and Cam went to push him off him,” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said after the game, according to ESPN. “He touched the official. That’s what I was told. You can’t touch an official.”
Ryan Fitzpatrick would lead the Dolphins to a 31-13 victory. The 37-year-old quarterback hardly acted like the oldest player on the field. He finished 18-for-20 with 160 passing yards. He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in the victory. It was Miami’s first win of the season after losing to the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills to start 2020.
The Dolphins’ defense gave Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II a ton of problems.
Minshew was down D.J. Chark going into the game and couldn’t get into a real rhythm. He finished the game 30-for-24 with 275 passing yards and a late interception. He also lost a fumble.
Miami moved to 1-2 on the season. Jacksonville fell to 1-2.
