Dolphins' Cutler is believed to have cracked rib

Jets vs Dolphins Week 7 Preview

Coming off his season-high 130 rushing yards against Atlanta the week before, Ajayi managed 51 yards on 23 carries in the Jets game.

The Dolphins were able to tilt momentum in their direction even after the fall of their starting quarterback, or at least they'd like to think.

First came Josh McCown looking like prime John Elway, doing something no Jets quarterback had done since the 1960s by throwing for three touchdowns and running for a fourth.

But New York completely shut down the Dolphins that day, allowing only a meaningless touchdown on the final play.

It's easy enough to mention that the Jets flat out lost this game. That run was snapped Sunday, but host NY may have earned more respect with a 24-17 loss to the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots than in any of its three wins.

Moore stepped in and led the Dolphins from two touchdowns down to beat their rivals. The Jets defeated the Dolphins 20-6 during Week 3. "Give them credit. They made plays". That continued a sad trend for Miami - just one non-garbage-time touchdown for the offense in its past 15 quarters.

The Dolphins are no stranger to quarterback injuries. After their fourth-quarter meltdown Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, there was some angry shouting in the locker room behind closed doors. And all of that leads us to Sunday, where the Dolphins are slight favorites by virtue of being the home team. Injuries, as usual, could be a factor.

Dolphins defensive back Bobby McCain made the biggest defensive play of the game, intercepting a Josh McCown pass at the NY 27 with 47 seconds left in the fourth quarter. "That's what it is, but I'll go and talk to him and I'll look at the play myself, and I'll go from there".

Muhammad Wilkerson, New York's best defensive lineman, is questionable due to toe and shoulder injuries. Just a crusher of a loss for the Jets. NY used a balance rushing attack in that game, with Powell running for 37 yards on 15 carries, McGuire 34 on seven carries and Forte 25 on eight attempts. That is a huge loss for Miami - Pouncey is an All-Pro blocker and the team's best offensive lineman. Kenny Stills had four catches for 49 yards and a score.

Penalties were also an issue, as this team was flagged nine times for 76 negative yards. Guarding Landry will certainly be a focus for the Jets, who will try to engineer a season sweep over the Dolphins on Sunday. It'll take more than one bad half to shake their faith. Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf) was also active. Yet, despite all that rejection, Kerley has caught almost everything thrown his way this season - and that is not hyperbole. Moore finished 13 for 21 for 188 yards. After the first few games, people were anointing Jamal Adams for the hall of fame, and Maye was not far behind. "But we're coming together". "We just basically have to stop the run".
