Dolphins Lay a Beating on the Rival Jets 30-9 to Improve to 4-3

The Dolphins are a playoff team. That is if the season ended today.

Yes, the young Dolphins are a team that appears on the rise, as Sunday in New Jersey they pounded the rival New York Jets 30-9, a score that didn’t indicate just how much the Dolphins blew out the mouthy Jets.

”It was very satisfying for us, as good as it gets,” Dolphins RB Reggie Bush said. ”We wanted to have the opportunity to jump on them early and we accomplished that. Once we got them down early, I thought that was it.”

Matt Moore came off the bench to throw for 131 yards and a touchdown, and the Dolphins dominated on defense and special teams en route to a convincing rout to get to 4-3.

Moore replaced Ryan Tannehill after the rookie first-round pick injured his left quadriceps on a sack by New York’s Calvin Pace during the Dolphins’ second drive and completed 11-of-19 passes without a turnover.

He received plenty of support from a defense that sacked Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez four times and came up with two takeaways as Miami registered its third straight win following a 1-3 start.

The Dolphins also got a touchdown from Olivier Vernon on a blocked punt in building a commanding 20-0 halftime lead, while Daniel Thomas and Anthony Fasano each had scores to help Miami avenge a 23-20 home overtime loss to the Jets in Week 3.

“It was a team victory in every regard,” said Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin. “All three phases contributed to the win and I thought our guys came out ready to play after the bye week. We got off to a fast start and there were a lot of positives out there.”

Bottom line, this team is playing well. As the season continues to progress, the Dolphins are showing growth, and that’s all you can ask for from such a young team.
