Miami Dolphins vs New York Jets Betting Picks and Free Prediction
The hysteria surrounding New York Jets rookie Sam Darnold has been ratcheted up mere moments after the completion of the 2018 NFL Draft, with the tabloids' loud headlines doing little to silence an enthusiastic fan base that has seen plenty of mediocrity at the quarterback position. After a promising season-opening performance, Darnold will make his home debut on Sunday as the Jets host the Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium.
"It's only been one game. To sit here and say whether he's great or whether he's trash or whether he's anything else, it's way too early for that," New York coach Todd Bowles said of Darnold, who completed 16 of 21 passes and threw two touchdown passes in a 48-17 romp of Detroit on Monday. Robby Anderson made the most of his lone target by reeling in a 41-yard scoring strike against the Lions, and the wideout bids for a fourth straight game with a touchdown versus the Dolphins.
While Darnold has become an overnight sensation in a New York minute, Miami needed over seven hours to post a season-opening 27-20 win over Tennessee -- due in a large part to a pair of lightning delays. Ryan Tannehill completed 20 of 28 passes for 230 yards with two touchdowns and as many interceptions while playing for the first time since sustaining a knee injury during the late stages of the 2016 season.
Miami Dolphins vs New York Jets Keys Players Betting Report
Miami Dolphins: Named one of the team captains this season, Kenny Stills led by example against the Titans by catching four of five targets for 106 yards and two scores -- highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown reception. The 26-year-old's multi-score game was his first since Oct. 22, when he had six catches in Miami's 31-28 win over New York. Fellow wideout DeVante Parker (broken finger) looks to make his season debut versus the Jets, against whom the former first-round draft pick had eight receptions for 76 yards and a score in a 20-6 loss on Sept. 24. Defensive end Cameron Wake lit up New York with 2 1/2 sacks in the most recent encounter to raise his total to 6 1/2 in his past four meetings.
New York Jets: The opportunistic defense picked off Matthew Stafford five times on Monday, an impressive total considering New York had just 11 interceptions last season -- with four coming against Miami. Darron Lee created headlines by claiming the defense knew Stafford's signals, prompting Bowles to pour water on his linebacker's claim. "We didn't know any audibles and we didn't know any plays," Bowles said. "Those guys did a good job following out their assignments that the coaches taught them." Lee, who matched Buster Skrine with a team-high seven tackles, had two interceptions against the Lions and 11 tackles and a forced fumble versus Miami on Oct. 22.
