Following a dreadful first half for the Jets that saw their starting quarterback Geno Smith end with an 8.3 QB rating the Jets benched him for Phil Simms offspring Matt Simms. The results were not much different seeing the Jets once again go three and out. On the ensuring drive the Dolphins are forced to punt for the first time all day.

Following the Dolphins punt the Jets came out and rushed the ball 5 straight times but fumbled on the 5th attempt and the ball was recovered by Miami's Philip Wheeler. Following the turnover and a nice run by Miller, Tannehill completes a 31 yard slant pass to Brian Hartline to give Miami a 13-0 lead.

Following the Phins TD the Jets drove in to Miami territory following a nice kick off return from Cromartie and and a 32 yard run from Chris Ivory. After driving to inside of Miami's 5, the Jets are forced to settle for a field goal making the score 13-3 Miami. Thigpen took the ensuing kick off down to the 48.

On a pass to the sideline and after breaking a tackle, Mike Wallace takes it in to the end-zone for the Phins second touchdown on the day, making the score 20-3. The quarter ends on yet another down note for the Jets as Misi sacks Simms putting the Jets in a long 3 down.
