This Sunday, the 0-10 New York Jets will host the 6-4 Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are coming off a brutal loss to the mediocre Denver Broncos. In the middle of the game, the Fins benched rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The Jets are coming off another loss in their horrid season but will have quarterback Sam Darnold back. The Dolphins will look to continue their dominance over the Jets this season, as they beat them 24-0 earlier this season. Vegas thinks the Dolphins will repeat as winners as they have set the line for the game at 7.5.
Miami Dolphins Look to Continue Hot Streak
The Miami Dolphins came into the season poised to be a faster, more disciplined team. Under head coach Brian Flores it seems like they have done just that. The Miami Dolphins made two key offseason signings in cornerback Byron Jones and linebacker Kyle Van Noy. The Dolphins’ defense has played really well and kept their team in almost all their games. On defense, the Dolphins will most likely stack the box and force Jets quarterback Sam Darnold to throw against their star cornerbacks Jones and Xavien Howard. The Dolphins have only gotten better as the season has gone on and are in a position to make the playoffs for the first time in a couple of years. Tua should have no problem throwing on the Jets’ horrid secondary, which was carved up last week by Justin Herbert.
Jets Look To Upset Dolphins For First Win
The Jets will have Sam Darnold back, that is the good news. However, for many Gang Green fans that is scary as Sam will give the Jets a better chance to win. This will be the first time all season that Sam will have his three best receivers and a healthy offensive line. If the Jets’ offense plays well, coach Adam Gase will plead that this is what “could have been.” On defense, Jets fans should watch Bryce Hall, who had a really solid debut last week. The Jets are hoping that he can be a piece of their secondary for years to come. Rookies Jabari Zuniga and Bryce Huff will see a lot of playing time and can hopefully have a positive impact on the game.
Another season has come and gone before November. With all eyes on the draft, Jets fans should watch Ohio State and Clemson both play on Saturday. Trevor Lawrence, the projected number overall pick, has not played in over a month. Hopefully, he is able to shake off the rust and show that he is deserving of that title. When the Jets offense takes the field for Denzel Mims. The rookie is special and truly has the potential to be a top-10 receiver in the NFL. I think he will score his first touchdown this week in a competitive divisional game.
