The Miami Dolphins head to New Jersey for a Saturday night AFC East showdown against the New York Jets. This game will be a Week 15 meeting to finish the season series with the Dolphins looking to keep themselves in the AFC Playoff picture while the Jets, who are eliminated from postseason considerations, are looking to play spoiler against their division rivals.
This game will mark the first start for Miami quarterback Matt Moore since the 2011 season finale, when Miami played the Jets. Moore is replacing the injured Ryan Tannehill, who sustained sprained the ACL and MCL in his left knee last week and is expected to miss at least two games, and possibly the rest of the season, with the injury.
The Jets, meanwhile, are playing game three with Bryce Petty as the starting quarterback after Ryan Fitzpatrick failed to have the same success he had in 2015. The Jets have fallen to 4-9 on the season and the bottom of the AFC East standings.
The Dolphins won the Week 9 meeting between the two teams, coming away with the 27-23 victory. Tannehill threw for 149 yards with a touchdown in the game, while running back Jay Ajayi added 111 yards on the ground with a score. Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips showed his athleticism during the game when he picked off a pass from Fitzpatrick and hurdled a would-be tackler on a 17-yard return that led to a field goal.Kenyan Drake added a touchdown on a 96-yard kickoff return with about five minutes left in the game to seal the victory.
