The Miami Dolphins will travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets this Sunday afternoon in NFL action.
The Miami Dolphins had their 5-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 6-4 on the season after being defeated by the Denver Broncos, 20-13, this past Sunday. Miami had trouble getting their offense going the Denver defense and could not fight back after a 20-yard TD run by Marvin Gordon III gave the Broncos a double-digit lead late in the 3rd quarter. Miami was outgained by Denver by a 459-223 margin and committed one turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Dolphins was WR Devante Parker who had 6 receptions for 61 yards & 1 TD’s.
On the season, Miami is averaging 26.4 ppg on 319.8 total yards per game (225.4 passing yds/g; 94.4 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Miami is led by QB Tua Tagovailoa who has completed 61.9% of his passes for 602 yards (127.2 yds/g), 6 TD, & 0 INT. Tagovailoa struggled against Denver and was replaced late by Ryan Fitzpatrick (69.8 Comp %, 1,652 yards, 10 TD, 8 INT), however, all signs are pointing that Tagovailoa will be back under center for this matchup. The top receiving threats for the Dolphins have been DeVante Parker (44 rec, 523 yards, 4 TD), Mike Gesicki (28 rec, 414 yards, 2 TD), Preston Williams (18 rec, 288 yards, 4 TD), and Jakeem Grant (24 rec, 241 yards, TD). Miami has a banged-up backfield with Myles Gaskin & Matt Breida hurt and have been going with Salvon Ahmed (40 att, 166 yards, TD).
Defensively, Miami is holding their opponents to an average of 20.2 ppg on 399.9 total yards per game (265.7 passing yds/g; 134.2 rushing yds/g).
The New York Jets are still searching for their first win of the season as the Jets dropped to 0-10 on the year after being defeated by the Los Angeles Chargers, 34-28, this past Sunday. New York struggled offensively against the Chargers defense and could not fight back after a 13-yard Keenan Allen TD reception gave Los Angeles a 31-13 lead midway through the 3rd quarter. New York was outgained by Los Angeles by a 376-292 margin and committed one turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Jets was QB Joe Flacco who completed 15 of 30 passes for 205 yards, 2 TD, & 1 INT.
On the season, New York is averaging 14.9 ppg on 289.5 total yards per game (190.9 passing yds/g; 111.7 rushing yds/g). Offensively, New York has been led by RB Frank Gore who has 447 yards & 1 TD on 123 carries. QB Joe Flacco (55.2 Comp %, 177.2 yds/g, 6 TD, 3 INT) has started the last two games for Sam Donald (58.6 Comp %, 197.2 yds/g, 3 TD, 6 INT) who has a good shot of returning on Sunday. The top receiving threats for the Jets have been Jamison Crowder (32 rec, 425 yards, 3 TD), Breshad Perriman (18 rec, 273 yards, 3 TD), Braxton Berrios (24 rec, 223 yards, 2 TD0, and Denzel Mims (13 rec, 217 yards).
Defensively, New York is allowing their opponents to average 30.2 ppg on 408.0 total yards per game (296.3 passing yds/g; 111.7 rushing yds/g).
The Dolphins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games vs. New York. The Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and 7-13 ATS in their last 20 games vs. AFC opponents.
Miami suffered a tough setback against Denver as although their defense has been great, their offensive has many question marks as it is young and missing many key pieces. New York does not really want to win any games and threaten their lock on Trevor Lawrence, however, the Jets have covered in their last two games (Patriots, Chargers) and as I think the passing attack will be able to produce some points at home, I think the play here is to go with the Jets in which I think will be a low-scoring, one-possession game. Good Luck!
