New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins: NFL picks, predictions for Week 9

Connor Hughes wrote:The Jets still have long shot odds to make the postseason. Sitting at 3-5, it looks like the team will need to finish 9-1 in order to reach the playoffs.


But with a relatively easy schedule the rest of the way, a run doesn't seem entirely out of the realm of possibilities. Coming off victories over the Ravens and Browns, the Jets will look to make it three straight against the Dolphins this Sunday.

Will they? Here's what NJ Advance Media's team of football experts think

Even two Jets fans think that Miami will win. I really hope they do.

I really see this game as a toss-up...could go either way IMO.  But, I'm going to go with a Dolphins victory - 24-20.

I just hope the Phins don't come out flat after the bye.  Start strong, finish strong.

I think our defense is a real key this week. Pressure Fitzpatrick and force him into mistakes, we could get multiple turnovers.

They haven't exactly been "clicking" on offense, time to turn up the heat on Fitz.

Gotta be careful with blitzes, because if Fitz can get the ball out quickly on short passes to Forte, Powell or Enunwa, the Dolphins D could get shredded.  The front 4 needs to get to Fitz without having to blitz other players.

I'll also add this: if the Phins do not get pressure on Fitz, I expect Brandon Marshall to have at least 12 catches and over 150 yards...no joke.

Everyone at ESPN are picking the Fins as well. This is more surprising then I thought. Lets hope this goes well.

27-17 fins, I hope they don't go crazy trying to get the record for 3 straight games over 200 and just win the game instead.

I looked up some stats that i think you guys might find interesting.  On average the jets opponents rushed the ball only 22 times a game.  Giving up on average 74yds per.  avg 3.36.  really great you would think but heres the other part that says they actually aren't that good.

The jets actually have the worst pass defense in the league. No team the jets played passed less than 30times.  3 teams, Steelers, Ravens, Browns passed the ball more than 40 times.

Flacco threw 44 times and Baltimore rushed 11 times for 11 yards with 2 attempts coming from Flacco.  

Of the 8 games the jets played 5 qb's threw for nearly 300.  Dalton(366), Taylor(297), Wilson(309), Big Ben(380), MCCOWN of all people(341)

Arizona killed them on the ground at 35/171.  But Palmer still managed to throw the ball 34 times

Jets opponents averaged 37.5 PA, 299 Pass Yards, 22 Rush Att, 74 rush yds. 3 rush attempts by qb's. Only 4 teams in the NFL have less then 22 rush attempts per game, Chicago, Detroit, Jacksonville, and the Giants. Only 3 teams average less than 74yds per game Jacksonville, Minnesota, and the Giants

I know stats don't tell the whole story but 8 games gives me a good sample size as to what opponents are trying to do to the jets.

Say what you want about Kacy Rodgers or Williams but I think Miami is going to run all over this defense.

The reason for those stats is that the Jets pass D sucks. They are very weak on the back-end...corners and safety. Conversely, their run D is awesome thanks mostly to an insane DL. So, teams pass because they can throw all over the Jets, and they limit rushing attempts because they can't run on the Jets. Attack the weak spots.

Of course, this goes against what the Phins do well...which is run the ball. It'll be interesting to see how Gase gameplans this one...on paper, we should be pass-happy - but that's not our strength.

If they protect Tannehill, we should be able to pass against them just fine.

I'm seeing a narrow Fins win, with a kick return score being involved somehow...
