The Miami Dolphins Destroy the NY York Jets
The Miami Dolphins went up to MetLife Stadium to destroy the Jets. Miami won the game by a score of 34 to 13 in a game that was never in doubt. Miami is now 8 and 3 which happens to be the same exact record they had last season after 11 games. The Dolphins lost five in a row after being 8 and 3. That needs to be avoided this season.
Dolphins Shootdown Jets
The Dolphins will remain at least two games ahead of the Buffalo Bills in the loss column. However, all not the news coming out of the game was good. It appears that Jaelan Phillips will be lost for the season as a result of an Achilles injury. The injury put a damper on an otherwise dominant victory over a divisional rival on their turf.
Dominating Dolphins Defense
The Jets are far from a good offensive team, in fact they are downright bad. However, the defense still had to go and perform. They did so in outstanding fashion. The highlight of course was the 99 yard pick six turned in by DB Jevon Holland as the first half expired while the Jets were attempting a Hail Marry pass. It turned out to be a reverse Hail Mary. The game was basically over at that point.
The Dolphins once again put up good numbers, but they continue to turn the ball over at a high rate. Miami turned it over 3 times just like they did against the Las Vegas Raiders last week. In this one there were two interceptions and a fumble.
Tua Tagovailoa threw his own pick 6 which for a few minutes got the Jets back into the game until the above mentioned failed Hail Mary. The Dolphins also fumbled the ball when Tua and RB Darrynton Evans did not have a clean exchange on a handoff.
For the second straight week, Jason Sanders kicked a field goal over 50 yards. If he continues to kick well it will help the team as the schedule tightens up over the final few weeks of the season.
The Dolphins won the first ever NFL Black Friday game! However, the Phillips injury does hurt the defense in a big way. Miami will need to have Andrew Van Ginkel and Emmanuel Ogbah to step up. They are both good players, so there is some hope on that front.
The Dolphins will get a couple of extra days off this week since they will not have to play until next Sunday. Hopefully, De’Von Achane gets healthy in that time.
