NFL Week 14: Dolphins @ Jets

Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets Sun. Dec. 12th 2010 4:15pm EST

The New York Jets are coming off perhaps their biggest loss of the season against the division rival New England Patriots in which they only scored three points and were lit up for 45 points by Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes against this supposed lockdown defense.

Not only was is lost devastating and the fact that this defense which is considered to be one of the best in the league were dominated, but as a result the New England Patriots are now considered arguably the best team in the league and the New York Jets have now slipped to second place in the AFC East division.

Fortunately, there is still a lot of football to be played in the NFL regular season as the New York Jets still have four games ahead of them, but they will most likely have to win all four games even if they have the slightest chance of being able to win their division title over Bill Belichick’s squad.

At this point in time that seems like the New York Jets are basically playoff bound even if they were to lose the next four games before the playoffs, but if they expect to be the Super Bowl title contending team they were considered to be throughout this season, they will have to continue to win football games in order to keep their confidence high heading into the postseason.

Earlier in the year, the Miami Dolphins were considered a team on the rise in the AFC Conference as their defense were able to contain some of the league’s most potent offenses, but injuries on the offensive side of the football have really started to hurt this team, especially at the quarterback position.

Coming into this AFC East division showdown, the Miami Dolphins will be sporting the fairly mediocre 6-6 record and a sit in third place with in the division below the New England Patriots and the New York Jets. Even though they are above .500 and have one of the best defenses in the NFL, making the playoffs is stretch to say the least as even clinching a playoff in AFC Wildcard is a little bit beyond the realm of possibility.

Fortunately, Miami Dolphins will have a chance to redeem themselves this weekend if they can get the best of the New York Jets definitely showed signs of weakness last week in the blowout loss to the New England Patriots.

As of right now, the New York Jets are -5.5 point favorites to come out on top in this AFC East division battle, but even though the Miami Dolphins defense is capable of making this a close game, I believe Rex Ryan will have his squad ready to make a statement this week with a dominant victory over their division rivals.
