Dolphins vs. Jets updates: Live NFL game scores, results for Sunday
The Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets will face off in an AFC East clash at 1 p.m. ET Jan. 8 at Hard Rock Stadium. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.
It was all tied up 7-7 at halftime, but Miami was not quite the New England Patriots' equal in the second half when they met last week. It was a hard-fought game, but the Dolphins had to settle for a 23-21 defeat against New England. No one had a standout game offensively for Miami, but they got scores from a handful of players including TE Mike Gesicki, RB Raheem Mostert, and WR Tyreek Hill.
Meanwhile, the contest between New York and the Seattle Seahawks last week was not a total blowout, but with New York falling 23-6 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. QB Mike White had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once with only 5.22 yards per passing attempt.
This next game is expected to be close, with Miami going off at just a 2-point favorite. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Dolphins, who are 8-8 against the spread.
Miami is now 8-8 while New York sits at 7-9. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Miami enters the matchup with 30 passing touchdowns, good for fourth best in the NFL. But New York ranks second in the league when it comes to passing touchdowns allowed, with only 15 on the season. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
Dolphins WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle vs. Jets CBs Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed
This game is not a very appealing matchup overall, but the battle between the Dolphins’ receivers and Jets’ corners could be fun to watch. Hill (117 catches, 1,687 yards, seven TDs) and Waddle (70 catches, 1,312 yards, eight TDs) have put up huge numbers this season, but their production should drop off without starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Gardner and Reed had a great game last week in Seattle, holding down DK Metcalf (one catch, 3 yards) and Tyler Lockett (two catches, 15 yards).
Gardner, who has already made a Pro Bowl as a rookie, is the favorite to win Defensive Rookie of the Year. Gardner has put up an impressive rookie season. The Jets hope that he can now start getting more interceptions. He has two this year.
The New York Jets (7-9) wrap up their 2022 season Sunday in Miami before embarking on what should be a rather interesting offseason in Florham Park, NJ. The Jets can play spoiler and knock the Dolphins out of the playoffs if they can pull the upset. Here’s your final viewing and streaming information for this season.
