TOJ Tweet Summary 2018, Week 9 – Jets vs. Dolphins

Dan Essien recaps the Jets week 9 matchup against the Miami Dolphins with #JetsTwitter

The Jets went into Miami with a good opportunity to turn things around against a beatable Dolphins. With rumors that Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson were returning to the lineup, the hope was that the Jets offense would finally do something. Maybe we were too optimistic. #JetsTwitter drags us through week 9 in the second division matchup between the Jets and Dolphins.

1st Half

The Dolphins started the game off with the ball and the defense had a great start but immediately a disturbing trend started…punts.

The Jets got the ball on offense and…nada.

The following drive, the Jets defense once again got a stop when they needed it. Leonard Williams came up big.

The Jets got the ball back on offense and…nope.

On the next Dolphins drive, the Jets defense once again came up with a quick stop and forced another punt. The Jets offense had another opportunity to get going but…

The Jets held the Dolphins out of the endzone but Miami did add a field goal to go up 3-0.

Jets offense got the ball back and…zilch.

On the following drive, the Jets defense forced a three and out after a challenge won by Todd Bowles.
The Jets offense got the ball back and I’m running out of languages…

The Dolphins then went on a long 14 play, 51 yard drive…that ended in a field goal when the Jets defense somehow didn’t break in the end.

On the following drive, the Jets offense finally got it going and got on the board with a field goal. It was Darnold’s best drive of the game.

2nd Half

The Jets started off with the ball in the second half and anyone that thought the second half would go better than the first was horribly surprised…

The defense started off well again, holding the Dolphins to only 22 yards on the drive and finishing it off with a sack.

The next Jets offensive drive, they picked up 1 yard…

The Jets defense again forced another three and out with a sack, this time it was Attaochu.

The Jets offense actually held the ball for more than 5 minutes on their next drive. But in the end…

Of course, the Jets defense got another stop, forcing another three and out. I’m sure at this point, they were questioning their own existence. Especially after the Jets offense got the ball back and did the following:

*Que the start of the Spencer Long segment*

Spencer Long continued on the following drive…

Jeff doesn’t have all the answers, Brian!

Somehow, despite Spencer Long and his finger, the Jets managed field goal on their next drive to make a one score game again at 13-6. The Jets needed the defense to make a stop and of course…

Darnold got the ball back with a new center and a chance to tie it up and…

But wait…there’s more!

Jets defense, stop, again.

Jets offense…

Uh oh, here they come, folks…
