The Miami Dolphins needed a win in the worst way in Week 13.
Lucky for them, their opponent was the New York Jets, a team who finally looks like the dysfunctional squad they were expected to be at the start of the season.
The Dolphins would pound the Jets 23-3, thanks in part to a great game from Ryan Tannehill, a very good game running the ball, and a defense that played its best game of the season.
It made up for some obvious flaws that, had the competition had been any stiffer, likely would've made the game hairier than it was.
The Dolphins are now 6-6 and are inching their way back into the driver's seat for the final AFC playoff spot going into a tough road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week.
But before we get to Pittsburgh, let's look at what we took away from Miami's dominating performance in the Meadowlands.
