Moore leads Dolphins to 31-28 comeback win over Jets

Jets vs. Dolphins preview NFL Week Seven Match Up: Jets at Dolphins

After Moore's two touchdown throws tied the game, Bobby McCain made his second career interception to set up Miami's winning field goal.

However, the 12-year man out Vanderbilt would exit the proceedings in the third quarter after a vicious hit from Jets outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins.

McCown's interception spoiled a strong overall performance in which he passed for three touchdowns and ran for one. Some Miami fans cheered when Moore entered the game to replace Cutler, who drew boos in his Dolphins home debut two weeks ago. Jermaine Kearse blew by him for a 29-yard catch down the right sideline on New York's opening possession, and Robby Anderson got behind him for an 18-yarder at the end of the first quarter.

Darron Lee wasted two of his very few good plays by incurring flags: a dubious roughing-the-passer call on a sack and a facemask on a tackle. The eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive was kept alive when running back Matt Forte gained 21 yards on a screen pass on third-and-19.

Thus, some of Miami's offensive standouts included wide receivers Kenny Stills (6 catches, 85 yards, 2 TDs) and Jarvis Landry (7 catches, 93 yards, TD), along with tight-end duo of Anthony Fasano (3 catches, 25 yards, TD) and Julius Thomas (3 catches, 58 yards). This was the first time the Jets blew a 14-point lead and lost since 1995.

Last season the Dolphins swept NY, beating them 27-23 at Hard Rock Stadium in November and 34-13 at MetLife Stadium in December.

That got him less upset than the "administrative duties" the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. Bergdahl said: "At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, 'I'm the guy who's gonna cut your throat'".

If Cutler's available, what would coach Adam Gase do? The interception he threw in the Jets red zone was about as bad as he could possibly throw one.

The Jets are ranked 18th in the National Football League in rushing offense, helped in large part by their dominant performance in Week 4 when they ran for 256 yards against Jacksonville. Kerley, through five games, has caught 95 percent of his passes, the highest percentage rate among receivers in the NFL. They jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but were unable to keep it up for 60 minutes.

Later in the fourth, Moore hit Stills again for a touchdown, tying the game at 28.

The Jets got on the board first. Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) was active despite not practicing all week. Bilal Powell led the way with nine rushes for 43 yards and Matt Forte ran seven times for 41 yards. Dolphins All-Pro C Mike Pouncey (concussion) was active despite missing the second half of last week's Atlanta Falcons game due to a concussion. Parker is the only guy that didn't fully participate in Friday's practice.

Gaines did not return after hurting his hamstring injury midway through the third quarter. He'll be asked about his plans for the starting quarterback in Thursday's Dolphins visit to Baltimore. Dolphins DT Vincent Taylor was also a healthy scratch for Miami.
