The Jets did more than beat the Dolphins in Week 3. The beat them up, too. Sometimes, luck or scheme decides a game. Not back on Sept. 24 at MetLife Stadium. This was simply one team taking it to the other at the point of impact. And not stopping until the game was over. The Dolphins’ offensive line got pushed back, time and time again. And if the same happens in the rematch Sunday, expect the same result: a Jets win. “Offensively, it all starts with us up front,” said guard Jermon Bushrod. “It all starts with us up front. We have to be at the best of our ability so we can give our playmakers a chance. We can give the quarterback some time, so we can give our running backs a hole. Our receivers can’t make plays if our quarterback can’t get the ball to him. The game starts with us.” The stat sheet told the tale. The Jets held the Dolphins to season lows in rushing yards (30) and yards per carry (2.0). The Dolphins only avoided a shutout because they scored a meaningless touchdown on the final play of the game.
Goal No. 1 for Dolphins Sunday: Don’t let the Jets ‘beat the s---’ out of them again
