Dolphins Swim Laps Around The Jets... Leave Them in The Deep End

Folks, I told you not to count out the Miami Dolphins, and boy, did they prove me right! After a tough Monday night loss to the Titans, they shook off the disappointment and came back with a vengeance, crushing the New York Jets 30-0. Now, that's the kind of response I like to see.

Let's address the elephant in the room—no Tyreek Hill, no problem. The Dolphins didn't miss a beat. Tua Tagovailoa to Jaylen Waddle, was the connection of the day, stepped up in Hill's absence, racking up a season-high 142 receiving yards and a jaw-dropping 60-yard touchdown. Talk about making a statement!

But it wasn't just the Waddle show; Raheem Mostert was out there making history. Two touchdowns on Sunday brought his season total to 20, the most by a Dolphin in a single season. Not to mention, he joined the elite club of 28 players in NFL history to hit that 20-touchdown milestone. Now, that's what I call putting the team on your back.

Now, let's talk about the Jets, or should I say, the no-show Jets. Zach Wilson's performance was nothing short of disastrous, completing a measly 4 of 11 passes for a laughable 26 yards before exiting early due to a reported hydration issue, then a head injury, and finally, a concussion. Trevor Siemian tried to salvage the sinking ship, but let's be real, it was a lost cause. The Jets are officially out of the playoff picture, and it's safe to say we won't be seeing Aaron Rodgers anytime soon.

Why did the Dolphins win? Defense, my friends. Despite missing key starters on a short week, Miami's defense, especially the front led by Bradley Chubb, was relentless. Six sacks, constant pressure, and four turnovers—that's how you win football games.

As for the Jets, well, blame the offensive line. Wilson was running for his life, and the offense was, let's be generous, nonexistent. It's been a recurring theme this year, and Sunday was no different.

Looking ahead, the Jets head back home to face the Washington Commanders on Christmas Eve, while the Dolphins stay put to host Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. Buckle up, NFL fans, because the Dolphins are back, and they mean business. The dance isn't over, and Miami is looking to make some serious noise in the coming weeks!
