Offense Not Clicking for Jets
It’s been an interesting season for head coach Robert Saleh and his New York Jets. The Jets lost their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first few minutes of the first game of the season. Since then, the combination of Zach Wilson and Tim Boyle have struggled under center. Wilson came back last week, and is prepared to be the starter fro the rest of the season. But, his numbers have not been great. Wilson has 8 touchdowns and 7 interceptions in 11 games.
The run game for the Jets was supposed to be better as well. The Jets brought Dalvin Cook in, and he is averaging just 16.2 yards per game. He has 66 carries in 13 games. Breece Hall started the season effective, but has slowed down quite a bit since. The Jets have just four rushing touchdowns on the season.
Garrett Wilson needs 147 receiving yards to reach 1,000 on the season. He is by far the top target for Wilson in the passing game for the Jets. Wilson is tied with Hall for the most receiving touchdowns on the team, with three. Tyler Conklin is second on the team with 506 yards on the season, but has yet to score a touchdown.
Jets Defense Strong Suit
The Jets do their work on the defensive side. New York is led by C.J. Mosley and Quincy Williams. They both have over 100 tackles on the season, Jermaine Johnson leads the team with 6.5 sacks, while Quinton Jefferson has six. The Jets have 12 interceptions on the season, with one for touchdown. Jordan Whitehead leads the team with four, while Brandin Echols returned one for a touchdown. On the season, the Jets are allowing just 19.8 points per game.
Finishing Up 2023
New York will host the Washington Commanders Week 15 on Christmas Eve, and then finish the season with back to back road games. The Jets are at the Browns on December 28th and then will face the Patriots on January 7th.

Hill Questionable for Miami
The Miami Dolphins have been one of the best teams in 2023, with the assistance of Tyreke Hill. Hill is one of the MVP candidates for a reason. He has caught 97 passes for over 1,500 yards and 12 touchdowns. He hurt his ankle in the loss against the Titans, and was limited. Now, his status is questionable for this game. The offense looks very limited without him in the game.
Raheem Mostert has been fantastic as the starting running back in Miami. Mostert had two late touchdowns in the loss to the Titans, and now has 16 on the season. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has four games to get 1,303 yards to reach 5,000 on the season. Tua also has thrown 24 touchdowns on the season, with half of them to Hill.
Miami on the season is scoring 31.6 points per game, while leading the National Football League with 279.2 passing yards per game. Jaylen Waddle is second on the team with 822 receiving yards, and 3 touchdowns. After that, it’s Braxton Berrios, Cedrick Wilson and Durham Smythe.
Miami Defense Looking to Score
The defense is led by the 7.5 sacks from defensive tackle Christian Wilkins. Zach Sieler, Jaelan Phillies and Bradley Chubb also have 6.5 for the Dolphins. On the season, Miami has 42 sacks. If you are looking for turnovers, Jalen Ramsey leads the team with three interceptions. The Dolphins have four touchdowns, all via interception returns.
Dolphins Finishing Schedule
This is the first of the final four games of the season for the Dolphins before the postseason arrives. Next week, Miami will host the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve. After that, the Dolphins have a big game on the road at the Baltimore Ravens. The final game of the season is at home against the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins have one of the hardest remaining schedules, so a win over the Jets is nearly mandatory for Coach McDaniel and his squad.

Dolphins and Jets Compete in a Good One
Obviously the status of Tyreke Hill is a big one. As we saw in Week 14, the Dolphins offense is different without him in the game. If he does not play, Miami is going to continue to struggle on offense. If he plays, and is relatively healthy, Miami should get their 10th win. Albeit, expect the Jets to have a solid game plan for him and the entire offense. Miami is not playing as well as they were earlier in the season. Regardless of his status, we are taking the New York Jets to cover this large spread. Too many points for a divisional battle.
Bet the New York Jets +9 over the Miami Dolphins in this game on Sunday in the National Football League. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your bets.
