THE TEAM NEWS

MIAMI DOLPHINS

  • Miami produced a great display, including scoring arguably the touchdown of the season with a superb trick play which saw their punter throw to the kicker as they were able to defeat Philadelphia.
  • The Dolphins have struggled to run the ball all season and were not helped by the loss of running back Kalen Ballage during last week's win and his injury has been deemed serious enough to be placed on injured reserve.
  • Running back Zach Zenner was acquired off waivers following his release by Arizona but it is unclear what kind of role he will play – particularly this week at least – with Patrick Laird and Myles Gaskin set to take on a larger portion of carries.

NEW YORK JETS

  • New York Jets put in a disappointing performance as their three-game winning streak was brought to a shuddering halt by Cincinnati last week as they allowed the Bengals to pick up their first win of the year.
  • The Jets lost CB Arthur Maulet to an ankle injury during last week's contest and he is a doubt for this Week 14 matchup and he could be joined by safety Jamal Adams who failed to practice on Wednesday because of an ankle injury.
  • Numerous other players sat out the first practice of the week as the Jets deal with multiple injury issues but they have decided to cut their losses with linebacker C.J. Mosley after placing him on injured reserve following his persistent groin injury.

THE PREDICTION

New York Jets looked capable of ending their season on a positive note after three straight wins but last week's shock loss to the previously winless Cincinnati threw them off course. They now host Miami who will prove to be difficult opponents and if the Dolphins can replicate their impressive showing when defeating Philadelphia last week, they should be able to pick up another victory.
