Dolphins Turn on the Jets to Beat New York
The Miami Dolphins turned on the Jets in the 4th quarter for a come from behind victory against their rival, the New York Jets. The Miami Dolphins have now won three games in a row and have steadily climbed back into the picture in the AFC East. The victory wasn’t without a loss though as quarterback Jay Cutler suffered an apparent chest injury right after halftime which knocked him out of the game.
Just a week ago the Miami Dolphins came back from 17 points down to stun the Atlanta Falcons and this week against the Jets they repeated their come from behind performance. It’s safe to say you can’t count out the Miami Dolphins. Not until the clock reads 0:00.
Before Jay Cutler was knocked out of the game he was 12 for 16 for 138 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The raucous and thunderous applaud heard when Jay Cutler was walked off the field with an apparent injury, wasn’t for Jay Cutler. It was for the incoming Matt Moore who the fans felt should be the quarterback due to the early season offensive struggles.
Matt Moore was serviceable as the replacement for start Jay Cutler throwing for 188 yards on 13 for 21 with two touchdowns and one interception. It is apparent that Moore will be the starting quarterback for the next couple of weeks as initial reports state the Cutler will be out anywhere from two to three weeks.
As for the defense, Cameron Wake continues to defy age and racked up 2.5 sacks on the Jets quarterback, Josh McCown. Wake applied pressure through out the game along side with fellow defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.
Bobby McCain quelled the New York Jets attempt at a comeback with a late fourth quarter interception which led to the go ahead field goal by Cody Parkey. The Jets feeble attempt at using laterals in the waning seconds of the game gave the Miami Dolphins their fourth win on the season.
The Dolphins next play the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night in Baltimore.
