Former friend Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins humiliate the now-0-6 New York Jets at Hard Rock Stadium down south.

  • New York Jets 0 (0-6)
  • Miami Dolphins 24 (3-3)
  • Final, NFL, Week 6, Box Score
  • Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL

New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas unintentionally yet perfectly summed up his team’s performance in Miami Sunday when the CBS broadcast team decided to check in on him.

Douglas’s Jets fell in defeat for the sixth time this season. The Miami Dolphins humiliated them down south by the final of 24-0.

Adam Gase now moves to 30-40 on his career, with 30 of those losses coming by way of double-digits.

For a good chunk of the game, neither team could convert a third-down conversion. In fact, the Dolphins finished 1-9 on third downs and still came out with the blowout victory. The Jets finished 2-17 on third down.

Initially, the Jets offense had the right idea: take what the defense gave them. Unfortunately, the combination of Breshad Perriman and Joe Flacco couldn’t do any damage.

After the Dolphins offense went three-and-out, the Jets gave it right back after a quick three plays. Ryan Fitzpatrick would then lead his team on an eight-play, 66-yard scoring drive that resulted in an Adam Shaheen 4-yard touchdown reception.

One drive later, Fitzpatrick found Preston Williams for a red-zone touchdown.

The rout was on from there.

Near the end of the first half, Durham Smythe caught the last of Fitzpatrick’s three touchdown passes on the day.

Fitzpatrick finished with 191 yards and those three touchdowns on 18 of 27 passing. He did throw two interceptions, one to Brian Poole and the other to Marcus Maye, whose interception was one of the more incredible ones this NFL season.

Myles Gaskin paved the way for the Dolphins’ rushing attack. The youngster finished with 91 yards on 18 carries. The Jets’ rushing leader was Frank Gore, who tallied 46 yards on 11 carries. La’Mical Perine went for 27 on seven while new acquisition Ty Johnson ripped off a 34-yard run late to give him 42 on three carries.

Breshad Perriman led the way in the air with 62 yards on four receptions. Jamison Crowder caught seven for 48 yards.

Joe Flacco was under duress all game long. Without Mekhi Becton, the Jets’ offensive line was atrocious, and it showed in the box score. Flacco was under 100 yards passing for much of the game. Only garbage time made his output respectable (186 yards and one interception on 21 of 44 passing).

Next up for the 0-6 Jets will be the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium next Sunday.
