Miam got a solid road victory in their first game of the season last Sunday.
The extra time to prepare did not leave them rusty though they will likely be desperate for that bye week later on.
The Jets continue to look terrible and you have to wonder if this might be an epically bad season for New York.
This is a division game though so the effort should be there even if this team is playing shorthanded right now.
The Dolphins struggled in the Red Zone but other than that have to be mostly pleased with their performance from their first game.
It was big news when they brought in Jay Cutler as an injury replacement but he was more than good enough in the opener. He also has a new favourite receiver.
That would be Jarvis Landry who had 13 catches. The 78 yards that came from them is nothing special but those 13 grabs made him a darling in PPR leagues for sure.
On the ground Jay Ajayi rushed for 122 yards. The Dolphins need to keep emphasizing the run because asking Cuter to do a lot has been a recipe for disaster in the past.
The offense was good but there is still room to get better…and the Jets will probably give it to them.
The run defense on Sunday was very good. The Phish held the Chargers to just 44 yards on the ground and really stymied Melvin Gordon.
They had less success against Philip Rivers and the Bolts passing attack. Rivers completed a high percentage but the Dolphins did not give up a lot of big plays.
Miami is probably a middle of the pack defensive team but this might be a spot where they get to look pretty good.
New York Jets
It is no surprise that the Jets are 0-2 but I think some thought their defense was going to be more respectable. Heading into Monday night no team has given up more points.
The fact that the offense is so anemic is not helping matters either…and that is with Jermaine Kearse, who they acquired via trade late in the preaseason. He leads in receiving yards and TDs.
Normally in a situation like this a team might turn to its kids but the Jets don’t really have prospects, that’s why the like of Josh McCown are getting so much run.
Matt Forte has been on the decline for several years and he is the guy they are looking to spark the offense. They are in real trouble and things might get worse when injuries start to pile up over the course of the season.
If the defense can avoid major injuries they could get better as the season progresses. They have talent, especially up front, but they essentially rebuilt their secondary, where continuity is key.
They really need third year defensive lineman Leonard Williams to dominate with Muhammad Wilkerson up front. That can let some other players have success around them.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Dolphins -6
I am not high on the Dolphins this season but they should win easily against a very bad New York team.
NFL Free Week 3 Score Prediction: Miami 27 – New York 13
It is hard to peg the Jets to more than 14 or so points which means that keeping up in games is going to be very difficult all season long.
There could be a Cutler meltdown but I am pegging that for later in the season. All will stay right in Miami for now.
