The Jets began the game on defense and forced a quick three and out by the Dolphins.
After a Dolphins punt the Jets took over deep in their own territory and methodically drove down the field. With a nice mix of running plays and short passes to the running backs and tight ends, the Jets picked apart the Dolphins defense and scored on a Braxton Berrios run for an early 7 - 0 lead.
On the subsequent Dolphins possession Ashtyn Davis picked off an errant Tua Tagovailoa pass deep in Dolphins territory. A Jets field goal put the team in the unfamiliar position of having a double digit lead as the first quarter ended.
Early In the second quarter a long pass to Devante Parker set up the Dolphins for a short touchdown run and the Jets’ lead was cut to 10 - 7.
The Jets immediately struck back with a 75 yard drive culminating in a Zach Wilson quarterback sneak for a touchdown and a 17 - 7 Jets lead. The Dolphins answered with a field goal to cut the lead to 17 - 10.
The Jets go into the locker room leading at the half for the first time this season.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
