The New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins meet in a week 9 AFC East division matchup from Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The New York Jets will look to bounce back from consecutive defeats after a 29-15 loss to Jacksonville last time out. Sam Darnold has thrown for 817 yards, 5 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 61.5% passing while Le’Veon Bell leads the Jets on the ground with 349 rushing yards. Jamison Crowder leads the Jets in receiving with 35 grabs for 322 yards while Robby Anderson has 309 receiving yards and Demaryius Thomas has 213 receiving yards for New York this season. Defensively, Darryl Roberts leads New York with 44 total tackles including a team-high 39 solo tackles. As a team, New York is averaging 209.6 yards of total offense and 11.1 points per game while allowing 357.4 yards of total defense and 26.4 points per game against this season.
The Miami Dolphins will be on the hunt for their first win of the year after sliding to 0-7 with a 27-14 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night football. Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown for 907 yards, 5 touchdowns and 7 picks on 59.7% passing while Mark Walton is Miami’s leading rusher with 172 rushing yards. Preston Williams leads Miami with 356 receiving yards while DeVante Parker has 343 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Jerome Baker leads the Dolphins with 48 total tackles including a team-high 31 solo tackles while Taco Charlton has a team-high 4 sacks. As a team, Miami is averaging 254.6 yards of total offense and 11 points per game while allowing 414 yards of total defense and 34 points per game against this season.
New York is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 division games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. Miami is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against the AFC and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 games following a loss.
I honestly don’t know which way to go in thus dumpster fire of a game as both teams are jostling for draft position and we are just getting to the midway points of their respective seasons. New York shouldn’t be favored on the road, but I can’t trust Miami to do much of anything, so between the two worst offenses in the NFL, the under makes sense here. The Jets and Dolphins are combining for just 22.1 points per game this season, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a game where the first to 17 wins.
