HISTORY LESSON: The meeting at Hard Rock Stadium last season produced one of the biggest fourth-quarter comebacks in Dolphins history. The Dolphins trailed 28-14 before they tied the score on two touchdown passes from Matt Moore, in relief of injured starter Jay Cutler, to Kenny Stills (from 28 and 2 yards). Cornerback Bobby McCain then set up Cody Parker’s game-winning 39-yard field goal in the final minute when he intercepted Josh McCown at the Jets 29-yard line.

Scouting Report

NEW YORK’S RECORD: 3-5

LAST GAME: Lost 24-10 at Chicago

OVERVIEW: It has been a bit of an all-or-nothing season for the Jets, beginning with their 48-17 victory at Detroit in their opener followed by their 20-12 loss against the Dolphins. The Jets reached the halfway mark of the season with a 3-5 record, and scored 34 points or more in each of their victories and 17 points or less in each of their losses. Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold’s performance has mirrored that of the team — his passer ratings in the three victories were 116.8, 98.1 and 113.9. With Bilal Powell on injured reserve because of a neck injury, Isaiah Crowell has taken over as the lead back. Crowell is 11th in the NFL in rushing thanks to his 219-yard performance against Denver in Week 5, as well as his 62-yard touchdown run in the opener at Detroit. Defensive lineman Leonard Williams and safety Jamal Adams lead the Jets defense, and Darron Lee (who played with Dolphins linebackers Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker at Ohio State) leads all NFL linebackers in interceptions with three.
