HISTORY LESSON: This season marks the 25th anniversary of the famous "Fake Spike" game at Giants Stadium. The Dolphins rallied from a 24-6 second-half deficit to defeat the Jets 28-24 on Nov. 27, 1994, scoring the game-winning touchdown on one of the most famous plays in franchise history. With the Dolphins trailing 24-21 in the final minute, Dan Marino completed an 11-yard pass to Mark Ingram in the middle of the field. After the Dolphins quickly lined up with the clock running, Marino made a gesture indicating he was going to spike the ball to stop the clock. Only he didn't. Instead, he threw a perfect back-shoulder pass in the corner of the end zone to Ingram for the stunning 8-yard game-winning touchdown. Read more Dolphins-Jets Matchup Memories here.

Scouting Report


LAST GAME: Lost 22-6 at Cincinnati

OVERVIEW: After their loss against the Dolphins left them with a 1-7 record, the Jets rebounded with three consecutive victories before the Bengals defeated them last weekend for their first win of the season. The offense came to life during that three-game winning streak, with the Jets scoring 34 points each time. Quarterback Sam Darnold was particularly impressive, completing 65.2 percent of his passes in those three games with seven touchdowns, only one interception and a passer rating of 117.2. Running back Le'Veon Bell hasn't had the kind of season many expected, though he leads the team in rushing with 589 yards and is second in receptions with 55. Wide receiver Jamison Crowder leads the Jets in receptions with 57, while tight end Ryan Griffin is the touchdown leader with five. Safety Jamal Adams has been the Jets' best defensive player, though an ankle injury is likely to keep him out of the game against the Dolphins. He leads the team in tackles with 64 and in sacks with 6.5. Former Dolphins linebacker Neville Hewitt leads the Jets with two interceptions.
