This game gave me heart palpitations at times. FIRST HALF - Miami outscored the Jets 20-0 in the first half. FINALLY! A good first half of football. - Ted Larsen spent part of the off-season grumbling about how he deserved to be a starter and seemed genuinely tiffed that Jesse Davis got the nod over him. Well, Ted Larsen gave up a bad sack in the 2nd quarter by completely missing his blocking assignment and leaving a rusher unimpeded to the quarterback who was stepping up in the pocket to avoid edge pressure. Nothing personal Ted, I like your fire and your nastiness, but that's why you didn't get the starting job. - Dolphins offense was putrid on its first two series. Weak pass blocking, and Tannehill's feet looked like they were stuck in mud. However, CREDIT TO ADAM GASE. He made the right call there: He doubled down on rushing the football to slow the Jets' pass rush and get Miami in a more physical mindset. I liked Miami's commitment to the run game. - Robert Quinn and Minkah Fitzpatrick continue to look like two grand slam off-season acquisitions. - How about that Kiko Alonso??? Volume forced fumble in the second quarter. I have to tell you, Kiko looks completely revitalized; he's one of the best players on the team right now. - Great hustle by Bobby McCain on the last play of the first half. McCain ran over from the boundary and made a crucial hit on an extremely improbable play. I honestly can't say enough what a huge play that was. Bobby McCain, you're my, uh, Wanny Warrior of the day. - Unfortunately, Sam Darnold looks like he's going to be a very good quarterback. But you could see that he is, indeed, a rookie. SECOND HALF - Miami's defense to open the second half was downright brutal. Baker, Jones, and McMillan all got humiliated on different plays. - Back to back plays: Tannehill's embarrassing John Beck impersonation followed by Xavien Howard's clutch interception. I'll say this: I honestly think Ryan should have just eaten the football there. It sucks, but the Jets sniffed that play out perfectly. - John Beck also played Center today. People will blame Sitton for the OL's poor play today, but I was also very underwhelmed by the play of Daniel Kilgore. Not just the bad snap, but overall I thought he struggled. - Needed a better throw from #17 on that deep shot to Albert Wilson. - Awful tackling in the second half. Kiko Alonso seemed to be the only defender willing to wrap up and tackle in the second half. - Worst play call of the game: 1st and 10 inside the Jets 40 in a game killing drive and the Dolphins lose 7 yards on some weird trick misdirection play. Adam Gase needs to have his play sheet taken away after that one. - Frank Gore and Ryan Tannehill were absolutely clutch on the game-icing drive.
