1st & 10: Another Division Loss… but with Encouraging Signs!

Stephen Russo offers 10 thoughts on the Jets ahead of this week’s Texans game.

1st…

These are the types of losses that we can stomach. Competent, competitive football with young, core players making big plays with a shot to win in the 4th quarter. This is what the season is about for the youngest team, with the most snaps played by rookies, coached by a very green coaching staff is about. While no one is walking away feeling like this is a moral victory (it is not), you can come away with some encouragement about this team and the direction it is heading – particularly when Zach Wilson returns. I am certainly not OK with being 0-10 in the last 10 division games, or losing to a bad Miami team at home, but following the last few weeks, there is progress there. I am happy about that.

TOJ’s Know Your Opponent: New York Jets v Miami Dolphins

This game sucksssssssssssssss.

Coaching: The bloom has come off the rose for Miami Dolphins HC Brian Flores. After 2 years of overachieving, the Dolphins are one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL this year. It seems to be known by all that defensive performance is a less sticky stat and shouldn’t be relied on to be totally consistent year after year. This was unknown to the Miami Dolphins and, as their defense has regressed, the team has been in a tail spin.

The Dolphins have 2 offensive coordinators, which is all you need to know about why the Dolphins offense is struggling. I would google their names but they will not be in Miami next year as Brian Flores picks a new OC every year.

Personnel- Jaylen Waddle is a very exciting rookie WR and Mike Gesecki is a good mismatch weapon at TE.
The Dolphins secondary is one of the best in league lead by All-Pro Cornerback Xavien Howard, and supported by Byron Jones, who is one of the better corners in league. Javon Holland has really flashed at safety as a rookie.

Potential Weaknesses: The Dolphins OL is LOL bad: call it like it is, it’s really the worst in the league. Chris Grier somehow was able to create an OL that includes a first rounder and multiple second rounders and have it still awful. If the Jets DL can’t take advantage of this group, serious questions should be asked.

Matchup: This is going to be an anemic game to watch. The Dolphins offense is gonna try to dink and dunk its way down the field and pray that Tua can stay healthy for 4 quarters as he is going to take some hits from this DL. The Dolphins are going to zero blitz Joe Flacco to death. Maybe he can hit a big go ball early to Elijah Moore to make Flores play the defense more conservatively. Joe Flacco is going to throw the ball up for grabs and it really is anyone’s guess if they’re going to be big plays and DPIs or turnovers.

Prediction: Dolphins 12 Jets 10

This game looks poised to be a game Red Zone forgot. I do think the Jets defense stops the skid of getting lit up for 40 points every week but this offense with Flacco falls just shorts and Zach Wilson is back leading the team in Houston.
