Monday Night Football recap: Dolphins @ Jets
Last night, the Dolphins traveled to New York to face the Jets. The Jets won by a score of 24-6. Matt Moore had some really stupid mistakes, like challenging Darrelle Revis twice. Ya know what ya get when ya challenge Darrelle Revis? INT. Moore threw both of his 2 INT’s to Revis, and one was returned 100 yards for a TD. The Dolphins had no life in this game. Moore’s decision-making skills are sub-par and he is not the future of this team. People have started talking about the Dolphins entering the “Suck for Luck” Sweepstakes; that is certainly a possibility, yet I don’t think the Dolphins will need to try to lose. On the bright side for the Dolphins, Brandon Marshall had 106 yards and he didn’t get ejected. Also, the Bush/Thomas tandem combined for 118 rushing yards, which is a lot more than they normally get. The Dolphins are still winless; the Rams and the Colts are the other 2 winless teams. Sanchez had 201 yards passing and 1 TD through the air. Surprisingly, he added 1 TD on the ground in the 2nd Quarter. Linebacker Calvin Pace had a combined 7 tackles and two sacks.
Next week, the Dolphins take on the 1-4 Broncos. They might have a chance to win this one, especially when you consider the problems they (the Broncos) have at QB. It will not be easy, but they are at home so that makes things a bit easier. The Jets take on the 4-1 Chargers in Week 7. I don’t think they’ll win that game. Although they just beat the Dolphins, we need to remember it is the Dolphins.
Till next time,
