I’m want to believe that we are turning things around for real, so I’m going to predict another Dolphins victory here. Dolphins 30, Jets 23.
I think we’ll know early how this game is going to end up. We have to come out fired up and well rested from the bye. We have to play with emotion and momentum. We have to limit the stupid penalties. All of these things will be evident within the first series or two. If not, we could be in for a long day. The Jets are far inferior to Pittsburgh and Buffalo, so you would think we might have an easier time. But this is the Miami Dolphins after all, the team that barely squeaked by Cleveland and got leveled by Tennessee.
Jay Ajayi might not have another field day. The Jets have an outstanding rush defense under Todd Bowles. But I’m going to trust that the Dolphins will find other ways to move the ball. I really want a big game out of DeVante Parker for once. I don’t think he’s being targeted enough, but part of that is because the running game has been so good. Our defense did a good job last game to contain the speedy Tyrod Taylor, so a similar approach could work well against Ryan Fitzpatrick. Byron Maxwell is suddenly in a feud with ex-Dolphin Brandon Marshall, so that could get choppy. Matt Forte can be a stud one week and a non-factor the next. It all depends on which Forte decides to show up.
Anyway, that’s my two cents on this. Hope to see you guys in our chatroom starting Sunday just before game time.
