The Jets already faced the Dolphins Antworten

once this year but there have been several personnel changes and we can now update you on how their main contributors have been performing throughout the season. So James Carpenter Jersey , let’s break down what to expect at each position group for Sunday’s game.QuarterbacksStarter Ryan Tannehill has once again been ruled out for Miami, so the Jets will face Brock Osweiler instead. Miami has lost four of their last five with Osweiler having started the last three, although he did beat the Bears in overtime.Osweiler’s stats haven’t been too bad, highlighted by a line of 380 yards and three touchdowns in that win over the Bears. The other two games have both been one-score games into the fourth quarter too, so the Dolphins are no pushover even with the oft-ridiculed Osweiler at the helm.David Fales will back up Osweiler on Sunday.Offensive LineThe offensive line for the Dolphins has a familiar look with two ex-Jets in the starting line-up. Travis Swanson is now starting at center after Daniel Kilgore went onto injured reserve. He lines up alongside right guard Jesse Davis and is backed up by another ex-Jet, Wesley Johnson.At left guard, Ted Larsen was another injury replacement after Josh Sitton went down early in the year. Larsen and Davis have struggled, but Swanson has done well so far.The Dolphins have a little more continuity at tackle with former first rounders Ju’Wuan James and Laremy Tunsil. Tunsil is having an excellent year, but James has surrendered six penalties and three sacks. Sam Young is the main reserve off the bench.Running BacksFrank Gore and Kenyan Drake have shared the load in the running game and both have produced well and averaged over 4.5 yards per carry. Gore leads the team with 385 rushing yards but Drake leads them with five total touchdowns and has also contributed in the passing game with 27 receptions.The three backups are Senorise Perry, Brandon Bolden and rookie Kalen Ballage, but only Ballage (three carries for 10 yards) has seen any action on offense.Pass catchersDanny Amendola’s 35 catches lead the team, but the rest of the Dolphins’ pass catchers have been somewhat inconsistent. Albert Wilson was having a good year, but he’s now on injured reserve.DeVante Parker has only played three games and Kenny Stills has just 16 catches in seven games, although he is tied for the team lead with four touchdown receptions. Stills is questionable with a groin injury though.The diminutive Jakeem Grant is a dangerous playmaker and a big play threat out of the slot.At tight end, AJ Derby is still listed as the starter but he’s caught just two passes all year, one of which was a touchdown against the Jets. Rookie Mike Gesicki has shown some flashes in the passing game with 16 catches, but he’s still struggling as a blocker. Derby is questionable with an injury so Nick O’Leary may need to fill in.Defensive LineThe Dolphins’ pass rush was expected to be a strength, but nobody has more than two sacks and starters Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn have just one each. Quinn is leading the team in quarterback hits though.Miami’s depth has been hurt by William Hayes going onto injured reserve and Charles Harris has also been ruled out for Sunday. Andre Branch will be the primary reserve.The Dolphins have operated a committee approach to replacing Ndamukong Suh and the starters are now Davon Godchaux and Akeem Spence on the defensive interior. Godchaux has been their most consistent run defender this year.There have been a few changes on the bench as they just signed a couple of experienced veterans in Ziggy Hood and Sylvester Williams after Vincent Taylor was placed on injured reserve. Williams started for the Lions against the Jets on opening day.LinebackersThe three starting linebackers have played every game with Kiko Alonso struggling with his consistency in an every down role. Youngsters Jerome Baker and Raekwon McMillan have done well and the trio represent Miami’s top three tacklers. The athletic Baker has been productive as a blitzer.Mike Hill and Stephone Anthony are the main reserves. Hull was activated to replace Chase Allen after he was placed on injured reserve.Defensive BacksMiami have some depth issues at cornerback, although Xavien Howard returned to practice on Friday having been limited due to an ankle injury. He leads the team with three interceptions.Bobby McCain is listed as the other starter, but the number three corner, Cordrea Tankersley, suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice this week, so Torry McTyer will need to step up. Rookie Minkah Fitzpartick, listed as a back-up safety, also contributes at cornerback, so his role will probably increase in light of Tankersley’s injury.The Dolphins’ starters at safety are solid as they have Reshad Jones and TJ McDonald both healthy. McDonald leads the team in missed tackles though. Reserve Walt Aikens can back up at safety and also at cornerback, if necessary.Special TeamsRookie kicker Jason Sanders has only missed two kicks all year and made the game winner in the Bears game. He had a kickoff returned for a touchdown in the season opener but has put most of his kickoffs into the end zone since then. Punter Matt Haack is having an unremarkable season after a shaky start.Grant is one of the league’s most dangerous return men, with two touchdowns already this year. He’s second in the league for both kickoff and punt return average.In kick coverage, Perry and Aikens have been their most productive players. Though the Jets allowed 37 points to the Vikings Cheap Nathan Shepherd Jersey , I thought the defense actually did a very nice job. The Jets offense gave the Vikings offense tremendous field position, yet the Jets defense still came up with 8 forced punts and kept the Jets in the game until late. The play of the banged up secondary was a key reason why the defense was so surprisingly solid against a high-octane offense.Let’s take a look at the numbers!Previous editions: Pre 1, Pre 2, Pre 3, Pre 4, W1-DET, W2-MIA, W3-CLE, W4-JAX, W5-DEN, W6-INDRULESThe coverage numbers include only legitimate targets into the general area of a receiver/defender; throws in which a defender in coverage was directly involved the outcome. Throwaways and deflections at the line are excluded.The stats for each individual are that of the quarterback’s passing numbers when targeting the individual’s matchup. A player could receive coverage credit even if a teammate finished the play. For example, against Denver this season, Morris Claiborne tipped a pass in this direction that ended up being intercepted by Marcus Maye. I credited Claiborne with that interception.Penalties and pass breakups counted are only those accumulated in coverage. Penalties/PBUs picked up on blitzes, or penalties tackling another player’s responsibility, are not included. PBUs and INTs in the box score are not exclusive to one another.“Burns mitigated by opponent miscue,” or “miscues” (M) are included in charting to attempt to knock defenders who benefited from an egregious error by the offense (drop, horrible throw) and give perspective to the validity of their raw stats. A defender can still register an interception or incompletion to his credit on a miscued play.First, here’s a look at each targeted player’s total numbers in coverage against Minnesota.Next, let’s take a look at the coverage numbers broken down by individual player-vs.-player matchups and man coverage vs. zone coverage. *I made a slight update to the chart layout this week. Instead of listing wide receivers who lined up both inside and outside twice separately, their production when lined up outside versus when lined up in the slot are differentiated between black text and blue text in the same box.Some takeaways from me:Possessing arguably the best wide receiver duo in the NFL and with the Jets missing Trumaine Johnson, the Vikings made it their priority to go after Darryl Roberts. They targeted him an insane 16 times, the most targets I’ve tagged on one player in a single game over the 2 seasons I’ve been charting these numbers. For the most part, he was up to the challenge. After giving up a tightly contested 34-yard touchdown to Adam Thielen on the Vikings’ first drive, Roberts allowed only 62 yards and 2 first downs on his next 15 targets over the course of the game.In particular, he shut down Stefon Diggs. When targeting Diggs against Roberts, the Vikings picked up only 22 yards and no first downs on 8 targets.Parry Nickerson was also focused on, and he was not as successful as Roberts. He allowed 66 yards and 3 first downs on 7 targets, failing to register any plays on the ball. He was lucky to not allow a huge deep pass up the seam as he failed miserably to locate the football, but luckily Kirk Cousins missed the throw under pressure and Aldrick Robinson also could not locate the ball.Cousins didn’t even bother to challenge Claiborne until late in the game. Claiborne had given up only 6 yards on 2 targets until Cousins challenged him deep on a 4th & 8 in the fourth quarter Lac Edwards Jersey , where the ball miraculously found its way through Claiborne’s grasp into the hands of Robinson.Minnesota barely bothered to challenge anybody outside of Roberts and Nickerson, but the rest of the team did a solid job when called upon. Doug Middleton broke up a potential touchdown to Kyle Rudolph, Terrence Brooks contested a couple of deep incompletions, and Darron Lee made a surprise coverage drop to deflect a pass.FILMRoberts was succeeding all over the field, contesting deep passes and making tackles underneath.Here, in the first quarter, Roberts shows impressive makeup speed to compete with Diggs on the deep shot, doing a nice job deflecting the pass without committing a penalty. It’s hard to stick with wide receivers running full speed vertically down the field - but quarterbacks are only going to throw passes that deep in perfect stride a very low percentage of the time. The most essential parts of defending these types of routes are being able to recover and to play the ball without drawing a flag. Nice job by Roberts doing those things here.Underneath, Roberts flew to the ball and tackled tremendously - a part of his game that had been a major weakness over the first six weeks.This is a first down if Roberts doesn’t read and close on this play as quickly as he does. Efficient route to the ball, quick burst, strong tackle.Parry Nickerson has mostly struggled in coverage, but he has had some positive moments breaking on passes underneath. However, there is one facet of his game that has frustrated me - his inability to generate big plays. He has let far too many high-percentage takeaway opportunities slip through his grasp. For a while, you can get by with “hey, get the next one!” After all, it’s tough to get your hands on a football as a defensive back - as the saying goes, there’s a reason they’re playing defense.However, at some point you begin hurting your team if you let missed opportunities for game-changing plays stockpile. The teams that convert chances like these at the highest rates tend to win the most.Pick up the darn thing! (Darron Lee also should’ve made a play on it)A tipped pass by Leonard Williams falls into Nickerson’s hands, but he can’t come all the way down with it.He also had a blatant dropped pick against the Colts last week. Eventually, you want to see Nickerson come up with a big play or two to make up for his struggles elsewhere.It’s hard to have expected more from this group. As mentioned, you would’ve liked to have seen them generate a big turnover, but they allowed only 10 passing first downs. The average NFL team has gained 13 of those per game this year. The big plays hurt, but the Jets held up in key spots and kept a great offense quiet for as long as they could. Considering the opponent, injuries, and help they got from the offensive side of the ball, the defense did a respectable job this week. Darnold and the offense just didn’t hold up their end of the bargain.
