All the information needed to follow the New York Jets battle with division rival Miami Dolphins.
Time for the New York Jets to open their home schedule for 2017. Jay Cutler, Jay Ajayi and the rest of Adam Gase’s Miami Dolphins head up from sunny Florida to take on Bilal Powell and company. The Dolphins are coming off of a 19-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers, and the Jets are coming off of a 45-20 drubbing at the hands of the Oakland Raiders.
This game marks the 104th time these two teams have met over the years. New York leads the overall series with a record of 53-49-1. The Dolphins, however, have won the last two meetings. The Jets last won in November of 2015. That day, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns on the way to a 38-20 victory.
For the Jets to take this one, they are going to have to involve Powell. Get him the ball in the screen game and let him make some plays in space. It will slow down the pass rush and give the offense some time to actually get something done. On the other side, the defense is going to have to step up. Jay Ajayi picked up where he left off last season with 122 yards against the Chargers. The Jets are currently last in the league against the run so they are going to have to get to a higher level. That especially goes for the defensive line, which has been bad.
