The New York Jets put on a dominating showing against the Miami Dolphins in London this morning as you watched along with your ham and eggs.
Wembley Stadium, London
New York Jets 27 (3-1) @ Miami Dolphins 14 (1-3)
Chris Ivory ran his way to his best day as a professional. His 166 yards and a TD on 29 workhorse carries allowed the Jets offense to dictate the entire flow of the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick was rarely forced into many third and longs and Miami’s front seven came away demoralized as Ivory ran through them at every turn.

From the opening kickoff it was all Jets. Ivory started the scoring in the first quarter as he took a trap up the middle to give the Jets an early 7-0 lead.
With the score 10-0 after the first, Ryan Fitzpatrick then hit Eric Decker on a post in the endzone with just 56 seconds remaining in the half.
The only offense Ryan Tannehill and company could muster came on a 3-play, 88-yard drive resulting in a Jake Stoneburner TD. Two of those three plays were pass interference calls resulting in 80-yards.
The second half featured much of the same. Todd Bowles continuously blitzed Tannehill and dared him to beat his excellent secondary through the air. He simply couldn’t. Tannehill finished just 19-of-44 for 198 yards, 2 TD, and 2 INT.
Only Jarvis Landry put a dent in the yardage column against New York. He totaled 189 yards in return yardage on the day. It was his big time punt return in the fourth-quarter that put a sudden and minor jolt into the Fins, but they could only muster one more TD.
The Jets now improve to 3-1 on the season while the Dolphins fall to 1-3. New York will rest for a week as they’ll graciously take their BYE in Week 5.
