Miami Dolphins 17, Green Bay Packers (1-2) 14
PRESEASON - Monday August 21st 2000 (at Miami)
(MIAMI) - Without stepping on the field, Jay Fiedler might have gained ground on Damon Huard in the Miami Dolphins' quarterback competition. Huard failed to lead the first-team offense to a touchdown for the third straight preseason game, but the Dolphins scored with 25 seconds to play to beat the injury-riddled Packers 17-14 on Monday night. The game featured four fourthquarter touchdowns and four missed field goals by Miami's Olindo Mare. Mare, who set the NFL single-season record with 39 field goals last year, missed from 33, 50, 48 and 51 yards. Dolphins rookie Ben Kelly returned a punt 73 yards with less than a minute to play, setting up a 2-yard scoring pass from Mike Quinn to Deon Dyer. The Packers questioned the ruling, arguing that Kelly had stepped out of bounds near midfield. Huard played three quarters, completing 16 of 23 passes for 138 yards. But without a touchdown in three games, he seemingly left plenty of room for Fiedler to take over the starting job before the season opener. Fiedler, who had arthroscopic surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right hip on Aug. 3, returned to practice Saturday and should play significantly in Miami's exhibition finale Friday against New Orleans. The Packers, playing without Brett Favre and Dorsey Levens struggled to move the ball for much of the night. Favre sat out with lingering tendinitis in his throwing arm but expected to return to practice Wednesday. Levens had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last week and is expected to be back in 3-4 weeks.
