At first it seemed like the Jets were going to win as they took a 10-3 lead and were threatening to score again.

Things then took a turn for the worse for the Jets as the first half came to a close when Mark Sanchez blew an opportunity to extend the Jets lead by an additional three points and was picked off by Randy Starks.

The Dolphins took advantage of Sanchez's error and closed the half with a field goal and came out in the second half looking to add on points and send the Jets packing early.

That is exactly what the Dolphins did as Mark Sanchez continued to turn the ball over with his inconsistent and inaccurate passes, which lead to more Miami points.

In the second half, the Dolphins scored 13 unanswered points leaving Mark Sanchez scratching his head and head coach Rex Ryan furious.

The Jets were able to score a touchdown with 1:15 left but it was too little too late as they were already down by two possessions and failed to get the onside kick.   

Both teams will be watching the post season from the comfort of their own homes as they try and prepare for the 2012-13 season.

The Jets finish 8-8 and the Dolphins finish 6-10.

Final Score: New York Jets: 19 - Miami Dolphins: 17
