Jets 31, Dolphins 23: Interception In Final Minute Seals Victory

Miami, FL (Sports Network) – Mark Sanchez tossed three touchdowns for the second consecutive week, and the New York Jets intercepted Chad Henne in the end zone in the final minute of regulation to escape Sun Life Stadium with a 31-23 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Sanchez completed 15-of-28 passes for 256 yards and threw a pair of scores to Dustin Keller and a 67-yard TD to Braylon Edwards, who was benched for the first quarter after getting arrested for drunken driving earlier in the week.

Keller ended with 98 yards on six catches, while LaDainian Tomlinson gained 70 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries for the Jets (2-1), who outgained Miami’s run-first attack, 146-84, on the ground.

Henne passed for 363 yards and two TDs on 26-of-44 throws, but was picked off by Drew Coleman with 27 seconds left going for the game-tying score, as the Dolphins (2-1) failed at recording their first 3-0 start since 2002.

Brandon Marshall caught 10 balls for 166 yards and a score in defeat.
