Same Old Jets Strike Again!

The same old Jets struck again this afternoon against the hated Miami Dolphins, losing a game where they gained almost four times more yards than their opponent. The Gang Green limited Miami to just 104 yards of total offense and only 10 first downs, yet they managed to find a way to lose in a typical Jets' fashion. This time it was special teams that allowed two back to back kickoff returns for touchdowns, basically giving the game to the Dolphins. After the game head coach Rex Ryan said that this Jets team can beat any team in the league and can also lose to any team in the league. It took him 8 weeks to realize what Jets fans have known for years!

QB Mark Sanchez struggled in the first half, but picked it up in the second as he finished 20 of 35 for 265 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT. Sanchez also scored a rushing touchdown in the third quarter. RB Thomas Jones ran for over 100 yards for the third straight week. This time he gained 102 yards on 27 carries.

The defense played well the entire game, with the exception of one drive in the fourth quarter where they allowed the only touchdown Miami scored on offense. The Gang Green defense recorded 6 sacks. DE Shaun Ellis led the way with 1.5 sacks. LB Bart Scott had the team-high 8 tackles (7 solo) and 1 sack.

The Jets are now 4-4 and will have a bye next week. We'll have our full game review early tomorrow.
