Ironically, the Miami Dolphins Week 14 victory over the New York Jets only lamented the team's wide array of shortcomings and needs.

Despite the return of Brandon Marshall to the lineup, Chad Henne posted a historically poor performance, completing just five of 18 passes for 55 yards. Even though he was pinned up against the Jets 9th ranked passing defense in the rain, there is simply no excuse for such a dismal game.
