No Darrelle Revis, the shutdown cornerback. The Jets are without their best three defensive players, and this presents an unusual opportunity for the Dolphins offense to bust out of this early-season funk and control this game.http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports/ ... l+blogs%29
No matter what we've seen the first couple of games, I still think this Dolphins offense has too many good players and nice weapons to keep playing like this. I still think quarterback Chad Henne showed too much last year to regress this year. I still think they're too talented to think 13 points against Buffalo and seven against Minnesota is who this offense is.
A Sunday night game against the a depleted Jets defense should provide just the kind of opportunity this offense needs to jump-start this year. Dolphins 27, Jets 13.
