Dolphins – Jets ….. Jets – Dolphins. If you love football, this is as good as it gets. These teams don’t like each other. There’s that little extra in the gas tank for both teams. It is what makes division games special. This is the fake spike. This is the Monday Night Meltdown. This is last year’s loss in NY that put the Jets in a locker room meltdown. This is the game where every Jet’s Fan South of Buffalo makes their way to Miami. The intensity will be off the hook. Yeap, grab a beer, send the wife and kids to the store with money, sit down and buckle up. If you’re like me, keep a big foam brick next to the TV.
Revis Island against Hartline – While you don’t expect Hartline to win too many matchups here he has to compete and win a few. It will be the biggest test to his new found number 1 WR hero status.
Revis vs Tannehill – Tanny needs to stay away most of the night but can take his shots with those back shoulder throws. However, he better make sure they’re back shoulder. Anything inside will be fair game to be taken back to the house.
Cromartie vs Bess – Cromo has trouble with smurfs. While he’s fast and tall, he doesn’t cut well or quick enough to keep up with the smaller guys. Miami should exploit this early and often.
Dustin Keller vs Dolphin LB’s – Keller usually kills Miami and he’s a Sanchez favorite target.
Sanchez – Which guy will show up? Sometimes he’s great. Sometimes he’s terrible. It usually boils down to the amount of pressure the Miami DL can generate.
Reggie Bush vs Defense – The Jets are ranked 22nd in the NFL and are giving up an average of 130 yds/game. This is odd for a Rex Ryan Defense and Bush should get his share of carries on Sunday.
Tannehill vs Defense – The Jets aren’t ranked very well in this category either. As they’re giving up 230yds a game. The Texans and Oakland Raiders field better pass defenses.
Sanchez vs Miami’s Defense – Miami’s pass defense is struggling. They’re currently ranked 27th in the NFL and it is largely due to TEs and RB’s running free in the secondary. Burnett and Dansby really need to tighten this up.
Finally, I live in Denver. Last year, Tim Tebow made Tebowmaniacs out of my wife and 10 year old daughter. My 18 year old daughter was already a Jet’s Fan. So Jet’s week in my house took a totally different meaning this year. I’m sincerely hoping for a victory here…otherwise I might be one big grump on Monday. So cut me some slack!!!
