There were a couple other key plays in this game as well.

1) With 10 seconds left in the first half at the Dolphins’ 14-yard line, Sam Darnold threw a pass over the middle to tight end Chris Herndon, who was hit at the 2 by Reshad Jones, fumbled, picked up the ball and tackled at the 1 by Bobby McCain. The Jets left the field with no points at half;
2) The play after Ryan Tannehill fumbled the ball at his 12-yard line, Xavien Howard intercepted Darnold in the end zone. That kept the Jets from pulling within a touchdown a few minutes into the second half;
3) On third-and-19 at the Jets 45, Frank Gore becomes a receiver when the Jet he was expecting to block doesn’t rush. He makes a good pass from Tannehill and runs for a 20-yard reception. That first down with 2:39 left effectively allowed the Dolphins to either run out the clock or, at worst, kick a field goal to put the game out of reach...
