Jets Rout Miami, 24-6: A Quick Look Back

The New York Jets evened up their record at 3-3 Mondnay night with a convincing 24-6 win over the hapless Miami Dolphins. The victory ended New York’s three-game losing streak. The Jets now host the San Diego Chargers and then head into their bye.

It was over when…
Santonio Holmes took a short pass over the middle from Mark Sanchez and weaved through Miami’s defense for a 38-yard touchdown with 11:50 left. The Jets went up 24-6. With Miami’s offense, that was enough.

Turning point…
Darrelle Revis’ 100-yard first-quarter interception return for a touchdown gave the Jets a 7-3 lead. New York was reeling at that point. The offense looked anemic. The Dolphins were in the red zone as the result of a gift muffed kickoff. Miami was on the verge of taking a two score lead, which might have made it a very different game against a Jets team searching for confidence. Revis’ play changed the game completely.

Three Stars:
1. Darrelle Revis: Revis was not necessarily in top form. He got beaten by Brandon Marshall a few times as badly as anybody has gotten him in a few years. Ultimately, though, he registered a pair of interceptions, the big touchdown, and allowed less than 50 percent of passes headed his way to be completed.

2. Wayne Hunter: The oft maligned right tackle stood tall Monday. He stonewalled Cameron Wake all night with little help. Wake, one of the best pass rushers in the league, was not a a factor.

3. Mark Sanchez: The start was ugly, but he threw for 201 yards and a touchdown. He seemed to get comfortable after the final drive of the first half. He also made a great audible call to a quarterback draw that led to a rushing touchdown when he saw the middle of the field vacated. Sanchez spread the ball out to seven different receivers.
