PREDICTION: MIAMI , NY JETS
Oddsmakers currently have the MIAMI listed as -3 point favorites versus the NY JETS, while the game’s total is sitting at 45.
The Miami Dolphins have answered a sterling start to the season with four double-digit losses in their last five outings to cloud their visions of grasping a third postseason berth since 2008. The Dolphins bid to turn the page as they begin the second half of their season on Sunday versus the New York Jets, against whom they’ve won four of their last five encounters.
With Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) sidelined for a third straight game, Brock Osweiler completed just 56.8 percent of his passes with one interception in a 42-23 loss at Houston on Thursday. Miami has fared better a home, however, posting a 3-1 mark while its lone win on the road came at MetLife Stadium, courtesy of a 20-12 victory over New York on Sept. 16. Rookie Sam Darnold tossed a pair of interceptions in that contest, but has been picked off five times in his last four and threw for a career-low 153 yards in Sunday’s 24-10 setback in Chicago. “(It’s) very frustrating,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said of his team losing two straight and residing at 3-5 for the third straight year. “… We got to put our heads down and we got to correct this and we got to try to come out and win some ballgames. The season is not over. … You don’t like where you are, but we dug ourselves this hole, we have to dig ourselves out.”
TV: 1 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Dolphins -3. O/U: 43.5
ABOUT THE JETS (3-5): Wideouts Quincy Enunwa (team-leading 22 catches) and Robby Anderson (club-best 314 receiving yards) missed practice on Thursday and are in line to sit out their respective third and second straight games due to ankle injuries. A depleted passing attack hasn’t done any favors to New York’s rushing game, which has been stuck in neutral with a league-worst 2.8 yards per carry over the last three contests heading into a meeting with Miami, against which it amassed just 42 yards on 19 attempts in Week 2. Isaiah Crowell rushed for 35 yards in that contest and has followed a 219-yard performance versus Denver that earned him AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors with 94 yards on 37 carries over the last three games.
ABOUT THE DOLPHINS (4-4): Like New York, Miami is also dealing with injuries to its wideouts, although former first-round pick DeVante Parker stepped up in the absence of the injured Kenny Stills (groin) and Albert Wilson (hip, injured reserve) with six catches for a career-high 134 yards versus the Texans. “I already know who I am as a player. I still got the talent,” said the 25-year-old Parker, who missed five of the team’s first seven games of the season. Parker was inactive in the first encounter versus the Jets, but gashed the club with eight receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown on Sept. 24, 2017.
1. New York S Jamal Adams has recorded a sack in each of his last three games versus Miami.
2. Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake, who found the end zone in the previous meeting with the Jets, has three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) over his last two contests overall.
3. Miami (334.3) and New York (314.1) are ranked 27th and 29th, respectively, in average yards per game on offense.
PREDICTION: Dolphins 24, Jets 16
