New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins: Sunday NFL Weather Report


Jets Nation, it’s the final game of the season — week 17 and the New York Jets travel down to Miami to face the Miami Dolphins.

So, if you are making the trip down to South Beach for the 1 p.m. kick off at Sun Life Stadium, here’s the weather you’re going to face:

Partly sunny, with a high near 79. Light east wind becoming southeast 5 to 10 mph in the morning.”

In a nutshell, this is going to be picture perfect weather for play football.

As far as the game is concerned, we all know the writing’s on the wall for Rex Ryan in his tenure as the Jets head coach but I do think the players are going to continue to do what they’ve been doing which is playing hard and giving an opponent all they can handle.

I think the question here is going to be who’s the biggest difference maker in the game?

To me, I believe the offensive line will be. And I say this based on the first matchup.

Say what you will about how the Monday night game in December finished up between these two teams, the Jets out played Miami in the run game by a mile. In that first half, the Jets out-gained the Dolphins on the ground, 210 to 15!! Are you kidding? The biggest problem in how that game finished was that the Dolphins made key adjustments but the Jets didn’t.

So if I’m in that offensive meeting room, I’d make sure I’ve got a bunch of designed running plays for the three horsemen (Chris JohnsonChris IvoryBilal Powell) until the Dolphins show you they can’t stop it.  In keeping with that, the offensive line (including Nick Mangold if he plays) really need to play sharp and clean but with an attitude that’s in control. This is still a divisional game after all and as we all know, the Jets have not won one all year long.

There are some honorable mentions for who I’d like to see a big game from… the whole special teams unit anyone?! How bout lending a bit of hand to both sides of the ball, a kick off or punt return TD would be great.

Well, I’m signing off of the weather reports for the final time this season, so have a happy holidays and a happy new year as well as wish for good things to come to the Jets in the future.
