MIAMI (AP) -- Now that the Jets jinx has been vanquished, the Miami Dolphins can focus on a different kind of streak: three consecutive wins to open the season.
It was very important, but I think the fans spend more time worrying about that than the players. With the addition of Ricky Williams, this is a new year for Miami. The Dolphins have a lot of weapons and they were very positive going into this week because the Jets haven't been playing well.
Question on the Jets: How long do the Jets struggle before they give Chad Pennington a shot?
Eric Allen played 14 seasons in the NFL for the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Ricky Williams' 53-yard TD run on Sunday was the longest of his career.
Miami DE Jason Taylor sprained his left knee in the first half, but returned to the game. ... Dolphins CB Patrick Surtain was inactive with a bruised left knee. It was the first game he has missed in his five-year career. ... Jets safety Damien Robinson was inactive because of a groin injury. ... Gadsden made the catch of the day, a one-handed grab over the middle for 23 yards. ... The Jets' Curtis Martin, who rushed for just 11 yards in the first two games, gained 43 on 16 carries.
