It’s Monday Night Football and no better time for the New York Jets to face a division rival.
This week features a team with a losing record, who can’t score, has a terrible offensive line and a question mark at QB.
And we also have the 0-4 Miami Dolphins with the same troubles.
Looks like a comparable game and a perfect opportunity for the Jets to right the ship and start the chase for the Playoffs.
Here are some quick hits on the Dolphins:
1. The Fins have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, including 3 at the Meadowlands/MetLife Stadium.
2. With the season ending injury to Chad Henne, QB Matt Moore will make his first start of the season (newly signed Sage Rosenfels will be the backup). There is absolutely no excuse if the Jets don’t blitz and pressure Moore all night. A perfect opportunity to Rex and Jets to get back some of their swagger.
3. The Dolphins offensive line, including the play of Marc Columbo, has been ten times worse than the Jets line.
4. The Dolphins defense may be worse. Allowing 414.5 yards per game and currently ranked 30th against the pass, do the Jets go with the Ground and Pound or let QB Mark Sanchez throw it again this week?
5. The Dolphins offense has scored 6 Touchdown in 4 games this year and newly signed Reggie Bush has been more disappointing than Shonn Greene by a mile. With 119 yards on 40 attempts, Bush’s 3.0 avg is not going to cut it.
6. Welcome back, Jason Taylor. Oh, how we missed you. For his part, Taylor tried to stir the pot a little in describing the rivalry between the two teams. “The rivalry is still there. I understand who I play for. But do I view the [Jets] organization a little differently? Actually, I do see them in a very different light having been around some of the people,” Taylor told the Sun-Sentinel.”
7. Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano is playing for his job. Look for some interesting calls during this game.
