Sportsbook.com Line & Total: New York -7.5 & 42

Opening Line & Total: NYJ -8 & 41

AFC East foes Miami and New York try to stop long losing skids when they match up on Monday night at the New Meadowlands. The Dolphins are 0-4 this year, while the Jets have allowed 98 points (32.7 PPG) during three straight defeats.

There’s no reason to give up on the Dolphins just because QB Chad Henne (shoulder) is out for the season. Back-up Matt Moore is only a slight downgrade, and the strength of this team was never the offense anyway. The Jets continue to search for an identity on offense, and they had just 255 yards in Week 5 against a Patriots defense that hasn’t stopped anyone. And consider that Miami is 7-3 ATS on the road the past two seasons, and they’ve won three road games in a row, SU and ATS, against the Jets. The Dolphins might not leave New Jersey with a win, but the Jets offense is in no shape to blow them out.

Moore’s career numbers are subpar (6.7 YPA, 16 TD, 18 INT), but he carries a respectable 7-6 record as a starter. For him to improve upon that record, he will look for Brandon Marshall to get open against a great secondary. Marshall torched the Jets for 166 yards on 10 catches in last year’s meeting in Miami, but New York held him to two receptions for 16 yards when Marshall visited New Meadowlands last December. Although the news in Miami has been about the loss of Chad Henne, the offense is expected to get a huge boost with the healthy return of RB Daniel Thomas. The rookie missed the last game with a hamstring injury, but is expected to play on Monday. He has 202 rushing yards on 5.1 YPC in two games this season.

The defense is a little banged up as S Chris Clemons (hamstring), CB Vontae Davis (hamstring) and DE Tony McDaniel (hand) are all listed as questionable for Monday’s game. Miami is allowing 307 passing YPG, which ranks second-to-last in the league. The Dolphins have also done a poor job of creating turnovers with just two takeaways in four games this year.

QB Mark Sanchez has had an up-and-down season, throwing for 886 yards (295 YPG) and 6 TD in his first three games, but then tallying 285 yards (143 YPG) and 2 TD in his past two contests. Although he is 1-3 in his career versus Miami, and completing less than half of his pass attempts, Sanchez has thrown 6 TD and just one interception in these four meetings. New York’s ground game continues to be atrocious, ranking second-worst in the NFL with 76 rushing YPG. The team’s top two rushers, Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson, are both averaging 3.3 yards per carry.

New York’s run-stop unit hasn’t been much better, with opponents gaining 135 YPG against the team’s 26th-ranked run defense. The team has surrendered 166 rushing YPG during its three-game losing skid. The Jets secondary remains an elite unit, as their 203 passing YPG allowed is fifth-best in the NFL.
