NY Jets @ Miami (Even)

The Jets, fresh off a commanding 28-14 win over New England, take to the road to face the 2-0 Dolphins in a battle to decide the outright lead in the AFC East. The 'Fins recorded an equally impressive road win last week, knocking off the Vikings, 14-10.

"Just when they've put the Ines Sainz incident behind them," said Tony Sparano, "the Jets have to come to Miami, where there's nothing but Hispanic reporters.

But speaking of 'asses that just won't quit,' Rex Ryan is the mouthpiece of the boastful Jets. In most cases, their actions back up their words. Us? We'll remain quiet, if for no other reason than Joey Porter is no longer a Dolphin.

Of course, the Jets have pressing issues. Darrelle Revis is out, and Braylon Edwards was arrested for driving while impaired. Frankly, I'm surprised he got busted, because, where Edwards is concerned, things usually don't 'get caught.' To add insult to injury, I believe cops also found an open container in his beard."

Edwards won't start, but will play. His impact on the game will be minute, however, because the Jets are just as well off driving without him. Against the Dolphins, New York will lean on their power rushing attack.

Shonn Greene pounds for 121 yards and a touchdown, and Nick Folk kicks four field goals.

New York wins, 19-12.
