ESPN’s Mark Schlereth and former New York Jets head coach Herm Edwards both think that the Jets defense can’t hang with the Miami Dolphins offense. Both analysts agree that the Dolphins ability to control time of possession with a power run game, coupled with a defense they feel can play good enough to keep the Jets off the score board will win the game.
As one might guess, I completely disagree with this premise. Yes, the Dolphins come in with a pretty awesome running game, which may or may not gives us some trouble but there is no way their defense is good enough to shut us down offensively.
The Dolphins TE coverage has been absolutely horrible this year and that alone is going to make this Jets offense more than a handful for them. Keller is a match up nightmare for the Dolphins and I would look to see him involved heavily in Monday night’s game plan.
