The Jets let one slip away last week, and they know they can't fall to 3-5 at the bye week. If I'm wrong, you can splash me with hot sauce.
|JETS 23, DOLPHINS 17
Expect another ugly game from these two. The Jets are the slightly better team, though that's not saying much.
|JETS 18, DOLPHINS 17
The Jets will have to grind this one out but Rex Ryan will find a way at home to pull out a much-needed win in the division.
|JETS 20, DOLPHINS 17
Neither offense will get much done, but the Jets will find a way to squeak past the Dolphins and get to .500.
|JETS 20, DOLPHINS 14
The Jets are playing well enough to win, if their receivers can hold onto the ball. Nick Folk has been perfect, a missed PAT won't lose the game.
|JETS 24, DOLPHINS 21
The Jets' offense is still not impressing me, but I'm not sold on the Dolphins yet. I believe Miami is playing right into Rex Ryan's hands with all the smack talk.
|JETS 23, DOLPHINS 20
Rex Ryan has been incredibly impressive over the last three weeks. This Sunday, he'll deliver his first season sweep of the Dolphins. Mark Sanchez will look more comfortable thanks to the return of Dustin Keller. This is a big game for Keller.
|JETS 20, DOLPHINS 10
The Jets will shut down Reggie Bush.
|DOLPHINS 24, JETS 17
The Jets did too much talking this week and further motivated a Dolphin team that needed no such thing.
|JETS 24, DOLPHINS 20
The "hot sauce" Jets will stay alive -- barely-- headed into bye week
|JETS 19, DOLPHINS 13
The Jets are playing better football. They are a lower-middle tier NFL team right now. That's just a few points better than an improved Dolphins club.
|DOLPHINS 28, JETS 21
The Dolphins are better than they were first time around. They're also coming off a bye week. Bush will bring the "hot sauce."
|DOLPHINS 20, JETS 17
The Dolphins are better than people think and coming off a bye their defense will expose the subpar Jets offense.
