Dolphins vs. Jets 2012: Miami fans thrilled with dominant win

Alex Trautwig

The Miami Dolphins dominated the New York Jets, 30-9, in Week 8, leaving their fans thrilled.

The Miami Dolphins put a beat down on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, winning 30-9 and moving to 4-3 on the season. The Dolphins did this despite several key injuries, including one to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who left the game in the first half.

Kevin Nogle of SB Nation's Dolphins blog The Phinsider said it was a dominant win in every phase of the game:

The Miami Dolphins simply, and totally, smacked the New York Jets in the mouth today, and the Jets could not respond. The Dolphins beat New York handily, and they beat them in every aspect of the game.

Miami jumped on New York from the get-go, scoring the first 20 points of the game before the Jets finally managed a field goal early in the third quarter. Nogle was really impressed with how sharp the team looked coming out of its bye week:

What a great way for the Dolphins to come out of the bye. What a great way to even the season series -- and to keep Rex Ryan from ever having swept the Dolphins in his head coaching career.

Because the New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams over in London, the weekend was not quite perfect for Miami. The Dolphins remain a half-game behind the Patriots in the AFC East and will face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.
