1. The Miami Dolphins drop 40 points

Yet, despite the Jets' pass rush picking up four or more sacks, it still isn't enough to slow down a Miami passing attack led by Tua Tagovailoa who throws for over 300 yards for just the fourth time in his NFL career.

The Dolphins have scored 40 or more points in a game just once in their last 90 games. But against this Jets defense, anything is possible.

The Jets aren't fielding an NFL defense right now. They've allowed 175 points over their last four games — a number that would be even higher if teams kept their feet on the gas pedal.

Nothing is going right for the Jets' defense, and even if they manage to rediscover their pass rush, that won't necessarily prevent Miami from marching all over them.

And the other factor here is that Tua Tagovailoa has actually played quite well this season. Despite the off-field drama regarding Deshaun Watson trade rumors, Tagovailoa is still completing over 65 percent of his passes and averaging 7.0 yards per attempt.

If he faces the Jets defense that we've seen over the last few weeks, the Dolphins could torch their opponents.

Perhaps it isn't a bold prediction to suggest the Jets' defense will allow 40 points given what we've seen in recent years. But when you're facing the 29th-ranked offense in terms of yards per game, it's a notable projection.
