The NY Jets will play their second consecutive divisional opponent when they play host to the Miami Dolphins in Week 11. They'll certainly be hoping for a better outcome this time around.

The Jets were blown out by the Buffalo Bills a week ago by a final score of 45-17 in a game that was an embarrassment almost from the very start.

But against an easier opponent in the Dolphins, at least on paper, this week, could the Jets earn their first divisional win since 2019? It's possible.

However, they'll certainly need to play better than they have in recent weeks. Especially when it comes to the defense.

The Jets' defense has been historically bad over the last four weeks allowing an average of over 43 points per game. In fact, only one team since the 1970 merger has allowed more points during a four-week span.

A matchup against the offensively-starved Dolphins could be just what the doctor ordered. That said, Miami is fresh off a stunning 22-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

The Dolphins are coming off their best game of the season and an extra few days of rest while the Jets arguably haven't looked worse this year. There's a reason Miami is favored in this one.

Let's take a look at three bold (or not so bold) predictions for this week's game.
