NFL, AFC East Final Game Box Score
MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

What quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the offense provided today was just what the doctor ordered.
With Darrelle Revis sitting this one out, thanks to a concussion, the offense of the New York Jets put together their most complete game of the season. Four Fitzpatrick touchdown passes and 411 yards of total offense later, and the Jets improved their record to 6-5 with a 38-20 laugher of a victory against the Miami Dolphins.
It was by far Fitzpatrick’s best game wearing green. Perhaps trimming the beard did change some of the overall mojo.
His four TD passes were sprayed all over the field. The man who was targeted most was none other than Brandon Marshall, who hauled in nine balls for 131 yards and two scores.
This was his first of the day as Fitz took advantage of the safety coming too late over the top:
Eric Decker and Devin Smith caught the other two touchdowns. For Smith it was a much needed confidence booster as his score made it 14-0 just prior to the first half coming to a conclusion:
Chris Ivory was bottled up for the most part: 87 yards on 21 carries. That was, until, he burst out for this 31-yard Beast Mode-like TD in the third quarter:
Defensively the Jets played OK considering the absence of Revis and the early loss of Marcus Williams (who left after intercepting a Ryan Tannehill pass early). The only issue lied late in the game as New York already had a big lead.
Calvin Pryor made sure to make his presence felt:
The easy win now moves the Jets to 6-5, tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the final Wild Card spot in the AFC. This now sets up an epic showdown with the New York Giants (5-6) next week.
