Week 13: vs Miami Dolphins
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. 3-38 loss to Buffalo. This, after a bye week and an uplifting 20-13 upset over Pittsburgh was enough to get Michael Vick sent back to the bench for Geno Smith, but the situation for New York is similar to the old conundrum 'Arsenic or Strychnine in your tea?' - pick your poison, Jets' fans. With 141/245 for 1,459 yards passing, seven TDs and 10 interceptions thrown over nine appearances this year (162.1 yards passing per appearance, on average), it's no wonder the Jets rank 32nd among all NFL pass offenses averaging 173.7 yards passing per game, with 10 passing TDs and 12 interceptions thrown this season. There is no reason for optimism about this unit going forwards. Sorry, Percy Harvin and Eric Decker owners (five targets for 1/2/0 receiving for Harvin last week; eight for 4/63/0 for Decker). Jeremy Kerley handled five targets for 5/66/0 receiving during the train wreck at Ford Field last Monday.
The Dolphins' pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 211.7 net yards allowed per game, with 18 pass TDs given up vs. 10 interceptions and 31 sacks generated to date (16th- and tied for fourth-ranked in the NFL, respectively). The Jets are 31st in the NFL with 36 sacks of Vick and Smith allowed this year - not good news for the on-again Smith.
This is a bad matchup for the down-the-drain Jets.
