While the Miami Dolphins come in fresh off their first win of the season, the New York Jets were handed their first loss last Sunday. With starting quarterback Chad Pennington out for the year, former Michigan standout Chad Henne was forced into the spotlight prematurely but started the new Dolphins QB era with a bang.
On their 38-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills, Henne played a clean game going 14/22 for 115 yards, with 1 touchdown and no giveaways. "It's definitely a great feeling," Henne said. "Overall, we did a wonderful job. Everybody deserves credit for this win." Henne became the 14th different starting QB for the Dolphins since Hall of Famer Dan Marino hung them up after the 1999 NFL season: The most in the NFL during span.
The Jets’ first year quarterback, Mark Sanchez almost got too used to that “great feeling” over his first 3 NFL starts going 3-0. But the rookie was grounded last week in the Big Easy, as he was erratic. In his first woeful start as a pro, Sanchez went 14/27 for 138 yards, couldn’t get into the end zone once, tossed 3 interceptions, had a costly fumble and the opportunistic Saints defense made him pay.
"My mistakes killed us. They absolutely killed us," Sanchez said. "The defense played well enough to win. That whole game is 10-10 without three interceptions and a fumble. You turn the ball over like that in this league, and you can't win." Tonight’s game between the Wolverine vs. the Trojan will be quiet entertaining. The OVER/UNDER for this, Monday Night Football: Jets vs. Dolphins NFL Betting Odds has been set at a combined total of 36 points scored.
