Well folks; we’re coming at the half way point in the season and it’s Dolphins week. What’s the weather going to be? According to weather.gov; it’s going to be A chance of rain. Cloudy, with a high near 63. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible as Hurricane Sandy makes his way up the coast. It will be windy at Met Life Stadium coming in from the NE at 16 MPH.
So, who does the weather favor? Because this game is being played in Jersey, this game favors the Jets because playing in sloppy weather is an north-eastern staple.
HOWEVER, this track will be sloppy so this Jets defense will need to find its footing early. This defense needs to be able to stop the run and get to pretty boy Ryan Tannehill. Yes, I said it. Back up the talk and hold Reggie Bush to under 100 yards rushing.
Then offensively, the Jets need to play a lot of ball control if this weather is going to be as bad as they think. And Mark Sanchez needs to be the good Mark Sanchez. The one making the smart decisions and the one who fits balls in a tight window. The offensive line needs to show up and make the holes for the running game (Shonn Greene, cough cough).
