Drake’s Kickoff Return Sends Dolphins to Big 27-23 Win Over the Jets

New York Jets v Miami Dolphins

Rookie returner Kenyan Drake was delighted to find himself at the bottom of a pile of players, because they were teammates in the end zone.

Jay Ajayi
came up short in his bid to become the first NFL rusher to have three consecutive 200-yard games, but he managed 111 yards and helped to run out the clock after the Dolphins came from behind for the third time.

A botched Dolphins punt led to a touchdown that put New York ahead 23-20. The Jets pinned Miami’s Jakeem Grant deep on the ensuing kickoff, but Antonio Allen was flagged for offside.
