Jets – Dolphins (40-17): Miami loses Teddy Bridgewater and sinks in New York

With a second loss in a row and a new quarterback on the sidelines, the Dolphins have fallen back from their little cloud at the start of the season.

New York Jets (3-2) – Miami Dolphins (3-2): 40-17

For the first time since 2017, the Jets have a positive record after five games.

Opposed to the Dolphins who played almost the entire game with their third quarterback, New York chained a second consecutive success and the third of the season thanks in particular to five touchdowns scored on the ground. On the Miami side, the beautiful sun of the first few weeks gave way to a very big cloud…

Miami in Sauce

Deprived of their titular quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins are counting on Teddy Bridgewater to carry the attack in New York. But on Miami’s very first offensive play, the latter was tackled in his own end zone by rookie cornerback Sauce Gardner. Bridgewater manages to get rid of the ball in time but the referees announce intentional grounding. Safety, 2-0 Jets.

To make matters worse on the Miami side, Teddy Bridgewater – injured in the elbow and having to go through the concussion protocol – must give way to rookie Skylar Thompson (19/33 passing, 166 YDS, 1 INT, 1 fumble lost), while offensive tackle Terron Armstead also joined the infirmary a little later. And meanwhile the Jets are taking off. First taking advantage of several defensive penalties to score a field goal, New York then found the promised land twice. Runner Michael Carter (2 TD on the ground) scored a first touchdown following a 79-yard reception from rookie Breece Hall (18 carries, 97 YDS, 1 TD, 2 REC, 100 YDS), then young quarterback Zach Wilson (14 /21, 210 YDS, 1 TD on the ground) uses his legs to score the second after Sauce Gardner’s first career interception.

Opportunistic Jets

New York’s youth gives the Jets overall control in the first half but the Dolphins hang on to avoid sinking. Star receiver Tyreek Hill (7 REC, 47 YDS) and running back Raheem Mostert (18 carries, 113 YDS, 1 TD) are Skylar Thompson’s main backers in the first two quarters. The first is true to himself, the second is particularly in legs. And under the impetus of these two, Miami made two big drives from 75 yards which ended each time with a touchdown, including one just before halftime. Twelve points behind, the Floridians return to 19-14 at the break.

Possessing the ball on the return from the locker room, the Dolphins ride the wave and reduce the gap a little more on a field goal, but miss the opportunity to pass in front on a new attempt from 54 yards. Opportunity which unfortunately for Miami will not happen again thereafter.

After this missed field goal, the Jets take advantage of a good position on the ground to put pressure on the defense of the Dolphins. Two big receptions from Corey Davis and Breece Hall open the way to a new touchdown on the ground (26-14), before a fumble from Skylar Thompson on a sack condemns Miami definitively. Hall indeed finds the end zone just behind to give New York a 33-17 advantage, and the Jets will even widen the gap a little more on a good run from Braxton Berrios (40-17).
