The Jets fell to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday by a final score of 30-9, one week after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles. Zach Wilson's performance was lackluster and the entire offense never seemed to get out of first gear.
As for the Dolphins, they're amazingly one of the NFL's hottest teams having won their last five games to surge to 6-7, one game out of the postseason entering Week 15.
The Dolphins can ill-afford to lose to their division rival, but will the Jets manage to play spoiler?

NY Jets vs. Miami Dolphins Prediction Week 15
A few weeks ago, these two teams appeared to be among the NFL's worst residing comfortably in the league's basement. But what a difference a month of action can make.
The Dolphins have completely turned their season around after a 1-7 start and look like a potential playoff team with four weeks remaining in the year. A lot of that has been due to the play of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa has been one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL over the course of Miami's winning streak despite dealing with an abysmal offensive line.
This Dolphins team has plenty of talent. Aside from Tagovailoa, the likes of Mike Gesicki, Jaylen Waddle, Jevon Holland, Christian Wilkins, and Xavien Howard are all putting together excellent seasons.
They should be able to do away with their division foes. But the Jets have already won a pair of games that they had no right winning earlier in the year. When everything goes according to plan, they can be dangerous.
The return of Michael Carter could ignite a stagnant offense, and if Wilson plays as well as he did against the Eagles, the Jets might just be able to steal one.
However, the safe bet here is to go with the Dolphins. Give me a Miami victory by a final score of 27-20. The Jets manage to keep it close and cover the spread.
