Jake Rudock went 22 of 29 for 229 yards and a touchdown, and the visiting Miami Dolphins hung on to beat the New Orleans Saints 16-13 in Thursday night’s preseason finale.
With both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen sitting for Miami, Rudock played the whole game. Mark Walton and Myles Gaskin combined for 100 yards on 20 carries.
New Orleans’ Teddy Bridgewater went 9 of 13 for 83 yards and a 12-yard score to undrafted rookie Emmanuel Butler. Taysom Hill finished 13 of 17 for 100 yards, failing to convert fourth-and-5 from the Dolphins 6-yard line in the final minute.
