The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins exchanged plenty of trash talk leading up to Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium and, when the contest was over, it was the Dolphins left with bragging rights.
The Dolphins jumped out to an early lead against the Jets, were up 20-0 at halftime, and 27-3 after three quarters before eventually scoring a 30-9 win over their division rival. Perhaps nobody from the Dolphins was more pleased to get the big win than Reggie Bush, whom the Jets seemed to target to injure during the Week 2 meeting between the teams.
Bush only had 59 yards on 14 carries, but he fired up his team with a 19-yard run on the opening drive that included a stiff-arm on Antonio Cromartie. Add in a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, and the Dolphins didn’t need a ton of offense. Bush even says the Jets let up once the Dolphins got on top.
