The New York Jets avoided a PR crisis tonight after beating the hapless, awful, atrocious Miami Dolphins, 24-6. The score does not indicate the Jet dominance. It indicates the ineptness of the Miami offense. Quarterback Matt Moore targeted Revis Island’s main squeeze, Brandon Marshall, eleven times but paid for it heavily early in the first quarter. With his team in the red zone, Moore threw an interception to Darrelle Revis that was ran back for a score. The Jet would utilize other big plays in the win, but overall suckiness of the offense was startling. Despite the lopsided score, the Dolphins out-rushed the Jets, 118-104 and out-gained them, 308-296 in terms of total yardage. With the win, the Jets improve to 3-3 overall and 3-0 at the house that Fireman Ed built…
There’s really not much to say about the Dolphins. They are 0-5, their head coach is on the hot seat, the quarterback is injured, and their divisional opponents are all playoff caliber. It sounds like a LUCKy situation to be in!
Jet fans may look at the score and think that the Jets are back. If you think that, you should have your head examined. The offense didn’t convert a third down until late in the third quarter!
This wasn’t a great passing display by Mark Sanchez. Take away his TD toss to Santonio and Sanchez turns in another poor performance. The Jets managed 104 rushing yards, but the majority of those yards came in the second half as the Jets were winding out the clock. This team needs to become more balanced if it wants to have any shot at contending for a Super Bowl title.
A win is a win. There are no style points in the NFL. With that being said, we’ll see how the Jets match-up against a formidable San Diego Chargers team in Week 7.
