2. The NY Jets' pass rush bounce back

On the other end of the spectrum, the Jets' pass rush could be primed for a major bounce-back week. The Jets' pass rush has been more or less neutralized since their seven-sack performance against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4.

As a whole, the Jets are currently averaging just 2.2 sacks per game while pressuring their opposition on only 22.5 percent of dropbacks. That's a far cry from their early-season production.

Teams have figured out how to scheme around this Jets defense and that's included their pass rush. But Week 11 will be their best opportunity to generate consistent pressure all season.

The Dolphins offensive line is easily the worst in the NFL and somehow even worse than their league-worst unit a year ago. They've surrendered a league-high 114 pressures in 10 games averaging a pressure allowed on over 25 percent of dropbacks.

Something has to give this Sunday. And in this case, we're giving the nod to the Jets.

The Dolphins offensive line just doesn't have the talent up front to compete with the likes of Quinnen Williams, John Franklin-Myers, Sheldon Rankins, and Folorunso Fatukasi.

In this case, talent wins out and the Jets record four-plus sacks in a game for the first time since Week 4.
