Jacksonville rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, the third pick in the NFL Draft, completed 7 of 11 passes in his exhibition debut, as the Jaguars beat visiting Tampa Bay 16-10 on Friday night.
Chad Henne started at quarterback for the Jaguars, playing four possessions that didn't result in any points. Bortles didn't have a touchdown pass, but showed his big arm and willingness to drive the ball down field, completing passes of 24 and 31 yards. He was not intercepted.
The winning points came with 6:27 left as running back Denard Robinson, a former Michigan quarterback, scored on a 23-yard run. With extra time available because Toby Gerhart (hip) did not play, Robinson led Jacksonville in rushing with 36 yards on seven carries.
