Drake's 96-yard Kickoff Return Helps Dolphins Beat Jets 27-23

Share

Special teams giveth. Special teams taketh away. The Jets are better than the Dolphins; they should have been able to take it to them from start to finish. When the clock ticked down to zero, the Dolphins had a 27-23 victory. Cleveland has much more pressing issues when it comes to fixing its team, which is why Dan Kadar has the Browns passing over a handful of viable young QBs to select defensive end Myles Garrett in his most recent mock draft.

New York's defense had plenty of chances to get off the field during Miami's first scoring drive, but a lack of discipline reared its ugly head.

Ajayi, coming off back-to-back 200-yard rushing games, had seven carries for 55 yards in the fourth quarter against the Jets.

Just when you think that things can't get any worse for the Jets, you hear the news that CB Marcus WIlliams is set to miss "several weeks" due to a high ankle sprain. If you thought it had been a while since the Dolphins did anything that resembled the Drake return, you'd be right. Kenyan Drake took the ensuing kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown that gave the lead right back to Miami. I didn't get touched until I got to the kicker, and I couldn't let him tackle me.

The Jets were penalized 10 times for 77 yards, but the most important takeaway from those unforced errors comes down to timing.

A botched Dolphins punt led to a touchdown that put NY ahead 23-20. As a team, Gang Green tallied just 17 first downs and 330 yards of total offense, out of which, 140 came on the ground and 190 through the air.

Whatever happened after the Tennessee game should be patented and bottled.

Ajayi came into Week 9 looking to become the only running back in National Football League history to record three consecutive games with 200+ rushing yards. The team picked up 4.3 yards-per-attempt, with Ajayi gaining 4.6 yards whenever he ran with the ball. Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen and Offensive Line Coach Chris Foerster, among others, deserve some credit for the turnaround. Gang Green racked up 35 yards worth of penalties to keep Ryan Tannehill and Co. on the field.

Fitzpatrick was also intercepted in the end zone by Bobby McCain in the fourth quarter, and he missed an open Brandon Marshall in the end zone, forcing NY to settle for a field goal.

Gase has stuck with the plan for three games, with the Dolphins running the ball 109 times and throwing it 78 times (58 percent runs). Rolle leaves with 834 career tackles, 69 passes defensed and 26 interceptions.

With their record now 4-4, they can now legitimately enter the conversation about playoffs. It's one that there are lots of ups and downs during a game.

The Dolphins visit the San Diego Chargers on Sunday afternoon for their next game.
