Dolphins dominate Jets 30-9

Several weeks ago the Dolphins lost to the Jets after a pair of missed field goals, once during regulation and again in overtime. Since then these two teams have gone opposite directions, with the Dolphins improving and the Jets imploding. And yet, when the teams took the field today, Dolphin fans weren’t particularly optimistic.

When the final whistle blew, the Dolphins left for the airport with a 30-9 victory, a win more dominating than the score or the stat sheet suggest.

The discussion must start with the oh-so-Special Teams. Olivier Vernon had a monster performance, scoring a TD off of a Jimmy Wilson-blocked punt and sealing the first half shut out by blocking field goal attempt. In the second half, with the Jets trying to get something going, rookie Marcus Thigpen returned a punt 57 yards. Oh yea, Dan Carpenter was 3 for 3 on field goal attempts. Last but not least, didImentionthesuccessful on-sides kick? It was great to see former Dolphins St Coach Mike Westoff get outcoachedbytheDolphins for once.The defense wasn’t going to be left out of the big play category. On the Jets first possession after the blocked punt TD, Nolan Carroll had a momentum enforcing sack and forced fumble on Jets QB Mark Sanchez, with DT Paul Soliai recovering. In the third quarter with the Jets making a last ditch attempt to close the gap, safety Chris Clemons made a back breaking interception in the red zone which he returned to the Miami 30 yard line. Oh yea, Jimmy Wilson, Kevin Burnett and Cameron Wake also chipped in sacks.Lastly the offense, which despite losing rookie QB Ryan Tannehill to a leg injury, still managed to put up two touchdowns and put the team in position for three field goals. Back-up QB Matt Moore was efficient and the offense made all the plays they needed to without making any momentum crushing mistakes.In the end Miami started getting conservative and the Jets put up some garbage stats, but the Dolphins were in complete control the entire game.Joe Philbin and staff deserve a ton of credit for how well they are implementing their systems and coaching up players in all phases of the game.

And the icing on the cake for all Dolphins fans is seeing the Jets sent into their bye week with a demoralizing loss and Head Coach Rex Ryan stubbornly committed to QB Mark Sanchez, who looked downright horrible today.
