    Jets @ Dolphins

    Miami and NY renewed their yearly rivalry in primetime and they did not disappoint theire fans.

    Opening kickoff Vontae Davis was rocked, fumbled, and Dwight Lowery picked up the fumble for the score.

    7-0

    Second possession the Dolphins marched down the field on the legs of Ronnie Brown and tied it up 7-7.

    The Jets then struck back quickly on Sanchez's favorite target Santonio Holmes for a 66 yard score. Holmes would end the game with 7 receptions for 177 yards and 3 scores

    A second Holmes TD after a Henne INT made the game 21-7. However on the ensuing kickoff Vontae Davis redeemed himself from the opening fumble by returning the kick for a TD.

    After ANOTHER Holmes TD (noone could cover the new #1 receiver), Davis then returned a second kickoff for a TD.

    Jets next drive stalled just outside of the redzone and so they had to settle for a FG which left it 31-21 with 2 minutes remaining.

    Henne led a perfect 2 minute offense and capped off the drive with a TD to anthony fasano as time expired.

    3rd quarter had 2 long drives, both ended in score for both teams. It was 38-28 going into the 4th quarter.

    The Jets tacked on another FG early in the quarter. However, Brandon Marshall who was on Revis Island most of the game broke out for a 53 YD scramble to give the Dolphins their first lead of the game. 42 -41.

    After a huge sack by newly acquired MLB Bowman, the Jets punted to the Dolphins, only to have Ronnie put the ball on the ground and have the Jets recover.

    The Jets then marched down the field, and completed 2 3rd down conversions to score the go ahead score with 47 seconds remaining.

    Final Score 49-42

    Stats.

    Passing
    Chad Henne 13-25 225 yds 4 TD and 3 INT
    Mark Sanchez was 16-28 314 YDS and 4 TDS NO INT

    Rushing
    Shonn Greene 139 YDS on 26 Carries
    Ronnie Brown was 109 on 12 carries

    Receiving
    Holmes 7 for 177 and 3 scores
    Marshall was 5 for 124 and 1 score


    The big news is injury news, both Karlos Dansby and Dustin Keller, indespensible players for both teams went down with injuries. They will be going back for MRIs to see the extent.
