Week 5: Dolphins vs Jets Game Thread

Final Score: Dolphins 31 - Jets 27

Today's Inactives:

  • Dolphins - WR Patrick Turner, S Chris Clemons, OG Shawn Murphy, DE Lionel Dotson, QB Tyler Thigpen, TE John Nalbone, OLB Quentin Moses, and OT Andrew Gardner
  • Jets - CB Lito Sheppard, CB Ahmad Carroll, CB Donald Strickland, LB Jamaal Westerman, QB Kevin O'Connell, OG Matt Slauson, and DE Ropati Pitoitua

Joey Porter will start for the Dolphins. For the first time, Quentin Moses is inactive. This is a result of Cameron Wake becoming a force. The Dolphins decided to go with the better special teamer, Erik Walden, instead of Moses.

For the Jets, Dwight Lowry will start at cornerback in place of Lito Sheppard, who is inactive.

This is obviously a huge game for both teams. Besides the hatred these two teams have for each other, there's a lot on the line. The Jets can move into first place in the AFC East with a win. The Dolphins, on the other hand, can move within one game of first place with a win of their own - an impressive feat after starting the year 0-3.

This is also the beginning of what could be a long rivalry between Chad Henne and Mark Sanchez. And, of course, it'll be interesting to see if Channing Crowder steps up after all of his trash-talking this past offseason.

As usual, please don't post any pictures in this thread - they only slow it down. And remember - do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).

Overflows will be posted as needed.
