The Miami Dolphins had a very good opportunity to get their record to .500 at 6-6 today when they went up north to take on the division rival New York Jets. The Jets are a team that really has no idea who they are, as cliche as that may sound.
So far today, the Jets have endured even more problems, as they have finally benched their starting quarterback, rookie Geno Smith, and put in Matt Sims.
As they should, the Dolphins are taking advantage of the Jets having absolutely no idea what they’re doing, and Ryan Tannehill and Brian Hartline exploited that a little bit more in the second half.
Early on in the third quarter, on the second play of a drive, Tannehill hit Hartline in a quick slant, a slant where Hartline broke right through the initial tackle attempt and then took it right to the house to push the Dolphins’ lead to 13-0:
In somewhat good news for the Jets, they have gotten a field since then to cut the lead to 13-3, although it doesn’t look like they’ll get much more than that.
