    The Jets had nothing to play for, except maybe the job of their head-coach Rex Ryan whose job was on the line as the Jets came in at 3-12.

    Geno Smith was in the league lead for passing yards and TDs, but his team was far from a contender as the defense was greatly disappointing for a large part of the season. But on this day...none of that mattered. They were playing for pride, for themselves and for the city of New York.

    The game started with a drive by the Dolphins that covered nearly an entire quarter. The Jets defense, once again ill-equipped to stop the opposing offense allowed them to string together a long series that allowed two 3rd-down coversions, and one 4th down conversion. The series ended with a Lamar Miller 1-yard TD run.



    The Jets however would strike quickly as the emerging Stephen Hill who had been torching opposing defenses at will, scored on an 80-yard bomb from Geno Smith on their first play on offense.



    The Dolphins would again drive down the field on the Jets as the secondary was practically useless in coverage, but were able to come up with a critical stop on 3rd down to force a FG. The Jets would get the ball back and ride the arm of Geno Smith. A couple of darts down the middle of the field to TE Jace Amaro and Eric Decker would put the Jets in business. They would finish off the drive with a 30-yard corner route to Jeremy Kerley who would put a move on the safety to slip into the endzone.



    The Dolphins would add a FG on a forced fumble on Chris Ivory, but the Jets would counter with one of their own. After a 3-and-out on the Dolphins, the Jets would get the ball back up 17-13, but another forced fumble on a devastating hit to Stephen Hill would put the Dolphins in scoring range yet again. But the stingy Jets refused to give up TDs on this day...so they were able to hold them to another FG and the Jets held their lead at 17-16.

    The Jets would begin their drive down the field in the middle of the 4th, hoping to pad their lead. On a critical 3rd and 1, Geno Smith would keep the ball on a read-option play and dash off-tackle to the left for a 51-yard TD run to put the Jets up by 8.



    The Dolphins would respond though with a drive late in the game. The Jets defense once again failing to come up big would allow Brian Hartline to squeeze between the zone for a 5 yard TD on a slant route. However, the Jets would apply pressure on the upcoming two-point conversion to cause an errant throw.




    The Jets would hold the lead and go on to win by the score of 24-22 to close out the season. A disappointing season, but if anyone knows this Jets team, expect them to retool and rebuild quickly as we look forward to 2015-2016.
