The Splash Zone 12/17/16: Dolphins Set To Face Off Against The Jets

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.

For the first time in his career, Ryan Tannehill will miss a start. Tannehill started 78 games for the Dolphins before being injured on Sunday against the Cardinals. Matt Moore has been thrust into the starting position and honestly, we shouldn't be too worried. Moore is one of the best backups in the league and no one can forget what he did in 2011 with the Dolphins. This is this second meeting between these two clubs and the last meeting resulted in a Dolphins victory thanks to some great special teams play from Kenyan Drake.

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