Furones: Who Has the Edge? Dolphins (3-7) at the Jets (2-7), in another installment of the rivalry. Analysis

Here’s a look at how the Miami Dolphins (3-7) and New York Jets (2-7) match in six key areas ahead of Sunday’s Week 11 game at Hard Rock Stadium:

When Dolphins Run: The Jets rank 29th in the NFL on run defense, but I’ve only ever given the Dolphins an edge in this category because they couldn’t even run on the Houston Texans two weeks ago. Miami owns the fastest attacking speed on the ground in the NFL at 73.6 yards per game.

Running backs Miles Gaskin and Salwon Ahmed average 3.4 yards and 2.7 yards per attempt, respectively. The offensive line should be able to give a better push than how the team likes guards Robert Hunt and Austin Jackson when they go downhill, but it has not been successful. Maybe quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s re-joining of the lineup opens up opportunities for run-pass substitutes in the running game.

The Jets have middle linebacker CJ Mosley, who led the team with 72 in his 4-3 plan. 3 pick Quinnon Williams (6 foot 3, 303 pounds) will be the key to advancing to the ground game. Edge: jet

When jets go: The Dolphins shut down the Ravens’ top-ranking rushing attack, so I’m pretty high on the Miami run defense at the moment. Sure, it’s a different stopping dynamic compared to Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson’s traditional running ability, but the Dolphins have caught opponents out of 100 yards in four of the last five games, limiting the Ravens to 94. includes doing.

The Rookie Jets led the Rushing Attack of New York, leaving Michael Carter behind, but the former North Carolina Tar Heel is not running this time against Manny Diaz’s Miami Hurricanes defense. Carter has 3.6 yards per carry this season, and he has Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman. Carter and Johnson are also pass-catching hazards.

The key to the Dolphins’ run defense is the reintroduction of nose tackle Rakwon Davis into the lineup. Ever since he returned from a serious knee injury, running against Miami has been difficult. Expect inside linebacker and leading tackler Jerome Baker (54 tackles) to return to his traditional alignment, as Jackson was used too much on the sidelines against the Ravens to prevent the edge from outrunning defenders.

When Dolphins Pass: It is only after Jacobi Brissette was kept off the bench for backup in the last two victories that Tagovailoa’s fractured middle finger on his throwing hand has improved to the point where he has increased his practice workload and coach Brian Flores has given him the week’s release. Initially named Starter. Tagovailoa entered the second half against the Ravens and conceded 8 of 13 for 158 yards and a speedy touchdown.

He said there should be no limit on the number of throws he is capable of against the Jets. Against Baltimore, he only showed how far a ball could be edged along the arc with a 35-yard pass, which found receiver Jaylen Waddle, who is sixth in the NFL in receptions (60). Miami was able to dial up a few plays which led to a breakdown in the Ravens secondary, leading to a 64-yard pass from Tagovailoa to Albert Wilson and one of 52 yards from Brissette to Isaiah Ford.

The Jets’ pass defense, ranked 31st in the NFL, is easily liable to make a few mistakes. He’s only intercepted two passes throughout the season, so he’s not very turnover-inducing, but he can get a pass rush against the Dolphins’ offensive line that includes Williams scoring five sacks and defensive end John Franklin-Myers for four. Posting together. Edge: dolphin

When jets pass: Rookie quarterback Zack Wilson still hasn’t fully recovered from his knee injury and Mike White, a former local high school standout at University School, threw four interceptions against the Bills last week, according to Jets coach Robert Saleh veteran Joe Flaco. going with. Part of the thinking is that Flacco is more adept at handling the expected Dolphins’ blitz, which came in large numbers in Miami’s previous two victories, especially versus the Jacksons and the Ravens.

The 36-year-old has only thrown three passes this season at the end of last week’s loss to the Bills, but competed all of them with one for touchdowns. Flacco began a 24-0 loss to the Dolphins in Miami last year, and he went 21 of 44 for 186 yards and one interception. Deep threats will account for Corey Davis and Keelan Cole, former St. Thomas Aquinas High wideout Elijah Moore and slot receiver Jamison Crowder and University of Miami alum Braxton Berrios.

The Dolphins cornerback tandem of Javine Howard and Byron Jones appears to be healthy after playing through leg injuries earlier in the season. He has been in form of late, with the Miami Defense allowing him solo coverage and blitz safaris Jevon Holland and Brandon Jones playing a ton. The Dolphins have six takeaways from their last two wins. Howard won the AFC Defensive Player of the Week, after forcing a foul and returning recovery for a touchdown in the Baltimore win.

Special Teams: Jets kicker Matt Ammandola is 10 out of 13 in the season, with all his misses exceeding 40 yards. They have also lost an extra point. Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders is 12 of 16 and has tied for all 17 of his point-after attempts.

Dolphins punter Michael Palardi averages 44.2 yards on his punt. He has had his struggles, but the combination of him and Gunner Mack Hollins is usually good for a punt deep down the opponent’s field at least once in a game. The Jets went back to Brayden Mann in the form of a puncture last week. Berios has been a solid returner for New York in both kick and punt, but the Jets went to Coleman at kickoff last week. Edge: even

Abstract: The Dolphins have the advantage of coming into the hot after two straight victories, one upset over the Ravens, and being better rested after a weekend break after Thursday night’s game. Miami have had recent success in the series, winning two of last year’s matches and six of their last seven meetings, but are still interesting in this historic rivalry when one team is down. Things can happen. Edge: dolphin

Prediction: Dolphins 24, Jets 17
