Recap of 2014 NFL International Series Games
Tony Romo came back from injury and threw three touchdowns to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He completed 20 of 27 passes for 246 yards and finished with a season-high passer rating of 138.8. Denard Robinson scored the two lone touchdowns for the Jaguars. A fumble early on set the tone for the game, giving the Cowboys just the momentum they needed to play solid football and defeat the Jaguars 31-17.
Matt Prater kicked a 48-yard field goal on the last play of the game to lift the Detroit Lions to a big comeback over the Atlanta Falcons. The Lions trailed 21-0 at the half but made drastic improvements thereafter. Matthew Stafford threw for 325 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 120 touchdowns, breaking the Lions record. Matt Ryan led the Falcons with 228 yards passing and two touchdowns, but unfortunately for the Falcons, it simply wasn’t enough. The Falcons' blown halftime lead was tied for the biggest in team history.
Coming off a two-game losing streak and fighting for his starting spot, Ryan Tannehill knew he needed to come out guns blazing. He threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns to carry the Miami Dolphins to a 38-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders scored on their opening drive but couldn’t make the necessary plays thereafter. The Raiders also had to replace starting quarterback Derek Carr with third-stringer Matt McGloin in the third quarter due to injury to Carr’s left ankle and knee. Tannehill and Miami’s impressive performance along with Oakland’s lack of defense paved the way for the Dolphins' big win.
