Jets defense doing its job in Miami

Dustin Keller, Reshad Jones, Karlos Dansby, Will Allen AP

Things are going according to plan for the Jets in Miami.

Their pass defense has shut down Matt Moore, picking him off twice. They have given up under 100 yards. Antonio Cromartie made a key interception to set up the game’s lone touchdown to give New York a 10-6 halftime lead.

On offense, the Jets are playing things close to the vest. There is no wacky pass-run ratio like last week. There have been some errant Mark Sanchez throws and no big plays from the Jets offense.  They have five false starts in a quiet stadium, including four on one drive alone.

Sanchez threw a bad interception late in the half, but set up a long Dan Carpenter field goal.

The Jets could still be eliminated from the playoffs before the 4 p.m. games start unless Jake Delhomme and the Texans win in Houston.  The Titans lead in Houston 13-10 at halftime.

    The phins are playing horrible, and yet the jets still aren’t running away with the game. That’s exactly why the J E T S S U C K, overrated, that’s a struggling Miami offense is still within a score.

    And Sanchez doing his usual thing for Jersey, putting up a solid 60 QB rating. Play on, playa.

    Go fins

    It’s okay though, Mark Sanchez absolutely has the full support of his team, right?

  6. wtf_seriously says: Jan 1, 2012 2:45 PM

    I believe it’s one of two scenarios. Caseyanthonymunoz is either (1) bitter because Sanchez stole his girlfriend, or (2) he is actually 11 years old and has a massive crush on #6. Seriously, troll, we can’t wait until the season ends and your babbling keyboard banging goes away for a while.

    As for the Jets: they blew their playoff chances weeks ago. This “perfect storm” of a playoff chance needs to be put to rest today, and they need to start rebuilding.
    And yes, I’m a Jets fan.

    Go Titans or Fins

  8. randomguy9999 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:14 PM

    well… without Long or Bush, the Phins just drove 94 yards in 12ish minutes to go ahead 13-10… 10:27 to go….

    very very embarrassing drive for the Jets… how do you deserve to go to the playoffs when you can’t stop the fins in over 12 minutes of play against the 2nd team line and RB?

  9. randomguy9999 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:18 PM

    Sanchez is sitting back under a shade, lounging and watching the Phins go ahead…..

    funny, when you see Peyton or Brady behind with 10 minutes to go, they are studying play sheets and talking to the WRs and line…. just sayin…..

    Lol. U mad? Only in Jersey.

  11. damnsureis says: Jan 1, 2012 3:23 PM

    @wtf-seriously

    Maybe it’s both 1 & 2. caseyanthonymuniz is 11 years old and Sanchez really did steal his girlfriend.

    Does anyone else get enjoyment out of watching the Jets and Sanchez fail?

  13. richm2256 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:28 PM

    Thoroughly enjoyed that last INT that Sanchez just threw, leading to a Miami FG.

    Love that quarterback, doncha Rex?!!!

    Revis just completely grabbed Brandon Marshall’s hand after that Sanchez interception to Starks.

    Right in front of the official and no flag.

    Don’t even try to tell me that the NFL isn’t rigged.

  15. johnshawisgay says: Jan 1, 2012 3:34 PM

    Did the Fins forget to sell any tickets to this game?

  16. johnshawisgay says: Jan 1, 2012 3:38 PM

    Adios Jets!!!

  17. richm2256 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:39 PM

    TWO STRAIGHT INTERCEPTIONS!!!!!!

    Rex Ryan must LOVE Mark Sanchez!!!!!!!!

  18. tiffpats4eva says: Jan 1, 2012 3:40 PM

    It must be nice that Revis doesn’t get called for holding.

  19. randomguy9999 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:44 PM

    Sanchez lounging under the shade again after 2 drives ending in 2 INTs….

    just sayin…. even Matt Moore is looking at the workups and working the players between possessions….

  20. richm2256 says: Jan 1, 2012 3:46 PM

    Miami up by 9 with a FG off that Sanchez INT, with 2 and a half min. left….

    Say “Goodbye”, Yets!

    The New York “Ain’t won a thing ….. YETS, YETS, YETS!!!!”

  21. randomguy9999 says: Jan 1, 2012 4:02 PM

    and the jets end 8-8….

  22. tiffpats4eva says: Jan 1, 2012 4:04 PM

    Rex Ryan: Now lets go eat some GD crow!

  23. zurnvs says: Jan 1, 2012 4:14 PM

    Hey Rex, shut your pie hole.

  24. tg1896 says: Jan 1, 2012 4:40 PM

    Jason Taylor announced his retirement before the game. Did Rex?

    I can’t think of a better way to finish a season that started so poorly for the Dolphins, than to send the jet’s back to the swamp’s of Jersey to think about how they failed yet again!
