The New York Jets look to stay in the mix in the AFC East as they face off against the Miami Dolphins in a divisional show down on Sunday.
The Jets have surprised a ton of people this season with how well they have played after many explored the possibility of a winless campaign and now those thoughts have quickly turned into a potential playoff spot as they are 3-3 through six weeks and right in the thick of things in the AFC East. The Jets offense still hasn’t been anything to write home about as Josh McCown and company are going to break any records but they have been serviceable, especially on the ground, and with the defense playing the way they are they are more than capable of keeping this one close against the Dolphins.

The Dolphins meanwhile are 3-2 on the year and can move to 4-2 with a big victory here, though it looks like they are going to be without Devante Parker again who has been sidelined for over a week with injuries. Miami has a tough stretch ahead of them as they don’t have a bye week to settle any injuries and give their guys a breather and in a divisional show down here that figures to be hard hitting and very physical this could be a tough spot for the home team. Jay Ajayi is going to carry the load of the offense once again and Jarvis Landry can expect a ton of targets through the air, especially if the Jets can get an early lead and forces the Dolphins to go to the pass game.
The Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last four games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games while the Dolphins are 4-1 ATS in their last five in October and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games on grass. The Jets to me have the best unit in the game as their defense has been quietly very strong and I think against an undermanned Dolphins side the Jets can cover and get the win outright.
