New York Jets Lead Miami Dolphins 17-6 At End Of Third Quarter

Tick-tick-tick…

The play clock is slowly ticking away on the Miami Dolphins, who are staring down the barrel of an almost insurmountable 0-5 start to the 2011 season.

In fact, with all the dropped passes and up-for-grabs bombs from Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore, it’s almost surprising to learn the fish have been able to keep it a two-score game.

At the end of the third quarter, New York leads, 17-6.

The Jets, who seemed to be picking up steam at the end of the first half, went 79 yards across 13 plays to get within field-goal range, where Nick Folk would launch one from 28 yards out for the only score of the quarter.

In reality, with the amount of time Mark Sanchez has been afforded to throw the ball, this should be a blowout.

Unless New York runs away with it in the fourth quarter, some of the lingering questions that fans had heading into this game may still remain.
