Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who made his 100th career start yesterday, saved the game ball and plans to display it in his trophy case. He knew he was close to 100; he was reminded in a pre-game text from his dad. "Being a seventh-round pick, being a guy who wasn't really recruited to play college football, it's been a pretty cool ride," he said. He'd rather not be reminded of his record: 39-60-1.

Predictably, the Jets defended Calvin Pryor, who was accused by Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill of celebrating an injury to WR Rishard Matthews. Tannehill called it a "classless move." Jets CB Antonio Cromartie said: "That's his opinion. We were celebrating the kind of hit it was. It was a big hit and it set the tone early in the game. We don't wish any injury on anybody." Coach Todd Bowles expressed the same sentiment.
