But to be booed off at half-time by a Wembley crowd of 83,986 – a lot of whom were neutral – in the first global Series game of the year was a new low.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Monday that as of Sunday night the Dolphins were planning to fire head coach Joe Philbin. We got to get that area fixed. “If I don’t feel like I can get outside, I try to pick a shoulder … and that’s usually the guy in front of me”. The now 3-1 Jets hit the quarter mark of their regular season as a playoff contender, no matter what their whopping 14 penalties Sunday tell us.
So that means the Dolphins might have to promote an interim head man like special teams coach Darren Rizzi or linebackers coach Mark Duffner, who was head coach at the University of Maryland from 1992-1996. Philbin says the Dolphins can salvage their season.
“Sometimes it seems like the walls are closing on on you but can’t panic”, he said. There isn’t any. Tannehill looked at his best today when he was moving and yet the Dolphins still want him to be a pocket passer.
He carried the ball 29 times and carried the Jets to victory.
Surviving December collapses defined the Joe Philbin era in Miami.
The Dolphins were outplayed in every aspect. Miami had just 28 total yards and one first down in the first quarter, and rushed for just 59 yards on the afternoon.
Ryan Fitzpatrick started things for the Jets by completing a 58-yard pass to Brandon Marshall on the team’s first play from scrimmage.
And the non-answers were appropriate after the game because Suh clearly had no answer during the game when Jets running back Chris Ivory ran through his attempted tackle as if he was a hologram.
Ivory ran for a career-high 166 yards and scored a touchdown, while quarterback Fitzpatrick threw for 218 and another score to secure the win over their AFC East rivals.
But when the question came up again, he offered a less assured “We’ll see”.
New York added touchdowns in the second and third quarters with a 10-yard catch by wide receiver Eric Decker and 2-yard run by running back Zac Stacy.
The Jets also took a little less than four hours to dispatch the Miami Dolphins, 27-14. Jaguars Major League Baseball Paul Posluszny, who made five first-half tackles, left the game with an ankle injury in the third quarter and did not return… The way to make a quarterback uncomfortable is to get in his face, and that is exactly what the Jets did.
Not even a 28-yard pass interference penalty on Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie could set the Dolphins up for a score to get them back into the game, nor could an interception from Zack Bowman.
Miami Dolphins’ Jarvis Landry, left, breaks the challenge from New… Suh is without a sack in his first season in Miami after signing a nine-figure contract this offseason, and opposing quarterbacks had a 95.8 passer rating against the Dolphins secondary. Roosters might still be waking up in a few parts of the country as Miami plays across the pond for the second straight year. Philbin was on the hot seat a year ago, threatened to bench Ryan Tannehill while in London before promptly blowing out the Raiders, who promptly fired Dennis Allen. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Lynch had an MRI on the injury earlier this week but did not elaborate.
