Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

It wasn't pretty, but the Miami Dolphins ended up beating the New York Jets. The team now sits at .500 and are on three game win streak. Jay Ajayi did not rush 200 yards again but still had a pretty good day against a very tough Jets run defense. Kenyan Drake was the hero of the day as he returned a kick for 96 yards. The Dolphins will take on the San Diego Chargers next week.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
