Jets defeat Dolphins

December 4, 2015

defRyan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets beat Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins 38-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The Jets advanced to an overall record of 6-5 and are in second place in AFC East while the Dolphins slipped to 4-7 are in fourth place in AFC East.

The Jets will play next week against fellow New York team the Giants, who are currently at 5-6.

Miami will also play against the Ravens, who are without Joe Flacco, next Sunday. The Ravens stand at 3-7.

Fitzpatrick threw for 277 yards that game, completing 22 out of 37 passes and had four touchdown passes.

Chris Ivory led the team in rushing. Ivory carried the ball 21 times for a total of 87 yards rushing with his longest carry of the day a 31-yard touchdown run.

Former Bear, Brandon Marshall, was the team’s number one receiver. Marshall caught nine passes for a total of 131 yards and had two touchdowns on the day. His longest reception was a 47-yard catch.

Ryan Tannehill threw for 351 yards through the air, completing 33 out of 58 passes. He had three touchdowns and one interception that game.

Jay Ajayi led the Dolphins in rushing, which wasn’t much. Ajayi carried the ball three times for a total of six yards with his longest carry a six-yard run.

Former LSU Tiger, Jarvis Landry, led the team in receiving. Landry caught 13 passes, amassing a total of 165 yards. He had one touchdown on the day with his longest reception a 40-yard catch.

The Dolphins are looking worse and worse. The absence of Cameron Wake was definitely felt as Fitzpatrick went untouched the whole game. Fitzpatrick seems to be getting a groove in New York for he has struggled much more with other teams in the past.

The Jets are in second place in AFC East. Now who ever thought they’d read that?
