McCown, Jets crash late in Miami

New York QB Josh McCown was rolling right along through the first three quarters on Sunday, but he fell flat before closing the deal and couldn't help stop a Dolphins' comeback.

Several Jets players said they were disappointed with the field condition at Hard Rock Stadium, which hosted a college game on Saturday. "Pretty bad," Jermaine Kearse said. Jordan Jenkins said he tweaked an ankle because of the chewed-up grass. "It sucked," he said, quickly adding, "But it sucked for both teams."

At 3-4, the Jets are a playoff long shot, but they weren't expected to be in contention. Their definition of "hope" is different than other teams; they can derive hope in seeing the development of young players, namely rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye and second-year linebacker Darron Lee. That's how the season should be judged -- the progress of their young talent base.

Jets WR Robby Anderson threw his helmet and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct with eight seconds left in the game. Anderson: "I was just frustrated, you know. I'm very passionate about this and I love this game. It hurts losing, especially when you're up on division games. Losing hurts, period." Coach Todd Bowles went soft on Anderson, saying he didn't see the play.

Jets QB Josh McCown on his last-minute interception: "They rotated coverage. I went backside where the read takes me and the guy was underneath the zone. I just didn't get enough on it to give Jermaine (Kearse) a chance and it's just a bad read on my part." McCown called it "a sick feeling."

The Jets finished with 12 penalties for 124 yards, including five in the fourth quarter (plus two declined). The main culprits: Buster Skrine (pass interference and two holding) and Darron Lee (unnecessary roughness and facemask). The offensive line had four penalties in the second half, plus one declined.

At first, Austin Seferian-Jenkins declined interviews, saying he was too frustrated to speak on the loss. After a couple of minutes, he returned to his locker and amplified a common refrain: "If we don't finish, we won't win games."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets have blown leads in two straight losses. So what's the problem? "Stop getting penalties," WR Jermaine Kearse said. "I know it sounds mundane to keep saying 'penalties,' but it's killing us right now. We have to play clean." The Jets had 12 penalties for 124 yards.

Jets injury report: RT Brandon Shell, who left the game in the first half, will have tests on his neck injury. CB Xavier Coleman left with a shoulder injury. No word on the severity.

At one point at the start of the fourth quarter, the Jets had a 95.5% chance to win today. They ended up losing to the Dolphins, 31-28.

Cutler injured in Dolphins' win over Jets (1:38)

Moore leads Dolphins to 31-28 comeback win over Jets

Matt Moore replaced an injured Jay Cutler and threw two touchdown passes in the final 12 minutes, and the Miami Dolphins pulled off another comeback win by erasing a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the New York Jets 31-28 on Sunday.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets showed no killer instinct whatsoever and blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. Bad defense, no offense, too many penalties. It was a clinic in how to blow a game.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Smart red zone call from the Dolphins on the Matt Moore TD pass to Kenny Stills. Clear out with a corner/flat combo and bring Stills underneath on the crossing route. Create an open window in the coverage.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

That was a big offensive pass interference call in the Dolphins game. There were 0.68 of those calls per game through Week 6. The full-season averages were 0.67 in each of the past two seasons.

Source: Fins believe Cutler has 2 cracked ribs

Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler left Sunday's game with an injury to his ribs after being shaken up by a hit from Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins.

The Jets rookie safety tandem, Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, are having themselves a day. Maye has an interception and Adams created an interception by tipping a pass at the line of scrimmage. These kids can play.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jay Cutler (chest) could be done for the day, but the Jets can't relax. Matt Moore has played well against them in the past, including a blowout win by Miami last December in New Jersey.

The Jets are showing their 20-6 win over the Dolphins in Week 3 was no fluke. They're playing a solid, all-around game, with strong performances by QB Josh McCown, DE Mo Wilkerson and S Jamal Adams. They've reduced RB Jay Ajayi to a non-factor and they're harassing Jay Cutler.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson, who has come under heavy scrutiny, is having his best game of the year -- and it's his 28th birthday. He intercepted a tipped pass at the Miami 1, setting up a TD. He also has one pressure and made a downfield, hustle tackle on a screen pass. Where has this guy been all year?
