Week 3: vs Miami Dolphins

All QB vs MIA

FBG says: Tough matchup. It's hard to find a less-inspiring passing game than that of the Jets. Take the fact that 38-year-old Josh McCown, he of the career 78.2 passer rating and 3.2% interception rate, is their runaway top option to start under center. Or, consider that Seahawks castoff Jermaine Kearse, ideally a special-teams ace and run-blocking WR3, has been by far the team's most efficient receiver. Altogether, this is an offense that's produced just 176.5 passing yards per game, and a pitiful 4.73 adjusted yards per attempt. There's a glint of optimism, at least, in the return of tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins from suspension. Considering his natural abilities and the team's yard-sale level of pass-catching talent, there's a decent chance he emerges as a voluminous splash-play threat out of the gate. His matchup is certainly cherry, fresh off a 2016 that saw the Dolphins destroyed by tight ends. Miami's pass defense was a mixed bag in their 2017 debut. The Dolphins got solid play from cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Byron Maxwell, but their lack of pass rush (three quarterback hits, one sack) allowed Philip Rivers to generally carve up the secondary (31-of-39 passing for a stout 8.49-yard average). Still, this unit is looking at a dream matchup and opportunity to tune up against the woeful Jets offense. On the back end, Howard and Maxwell are absolutely strong enough in man coverage to neutralize the Jets receivers, all of whom are ideally NFL WR3/4 types at best. And Cameron Wake and company will have another crack at pass-rushing success against a poor offensive line. Where the Dolphins are most vulnerable, regardless of matchup, is in defending the tight end position. Over their past 17 games, opposing tight ends have averaged 62.1 yards per game and caught a whopping 11 touchdowns. If Austin Seferian-Jenkins is in game shape, he could create a few mismatches up the seams and in short yardage.
