The Miami Dolphins overcame a 10-point first quarter deficit to defeat the New York Jets 31-24 in Week 15. The Dolphins outscored the Jets 21-7 in the second half to make up for their 7-point halftime deficit.
Miami’s Duke Johnson played a big part in the win, rushing for 107 yards and two touchdowns.
In the first half Zach Wilson and the Jets played their finest half of football this season. Wilson was decisive and accurate, getting the ball out quickly and in rhythm. The Jets defense was not dominated for one of the few times this season. It all added up to a 17 – 10 Jets lead at halftime, their first halftime lead of the season.
A promising performance in the first half by Zach Wilson and the Jets was erased as the Dolphins completely dominated both sides of the ball in the second half. The Jets failed once again at putting together a complete, four quarters performance, and Jets fans were left wanting more.
With the loss the Jets go to 3-11 on the year as the season continues to spiral to oblivion. The Dolphins improve to 7-7 and stay alive in the AFC Wild Card race.
