Dolphins shut down struggling Jets
East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Tannehill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns as the Miami Dolphins cruised to a 23-3 victory over an offensively inept New York Jets team at MetLife Stadium.
Tannehill completed 28-of-43 attempts with an interception in the lopsided win, which kept Miami (6-6) squarely in contention for an AFC wild card berth. Brian Hartline racked up 127 yards and a touchdown on nine catches, with Mike Wallace making seven grabs totaling 82 yards and hauling in Tannehill's other scoring toss.
The Jets (5-7), meanwhile, got a meager 108 passing yards combined from the tandem of Geno Smith and Matt Simms in being dealt a third consecutive defeat. The badly struggling Smith went just 4-of-10 for 29 yards and an interception before replacing benched at halftime, with Simms managing 79 yards with an interception on a 9-of-18 success rate in relief.
New York, which failed to score an offensive touchdown for a second straight week, mustered only 177 total yards and had three giveaways.
