The Miami Dolphins held a 17-10 lead over the New York Jets headed to the fourth quarter in Miami on Sunday.
The big news of the third quarter wasn't a score, though each team had a touchdown, but an injury: Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis left during the third quarter with an apparent knee injury. Revis suffered the injury on a non-contact play and was taken back to the locker room for further examination. He will not return to the game.
The Jets started the second half with a bang. Safety LaRon Landry intercepted Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and returned it for an 18-yard touchdown. That tied the game at 10.
Tannehill responded later in the quarter with an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. Tannehill was just 2 for 3 on the drive, yielding mostly to running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas in the aftermath of Reggie Bush's second-quarter injury.
Fullback Jorvorskie Lane capped the drive with a one-yard touchdown run.
The Jets had a red-zone drive in the third quarter that resulted in no score. On third and goal at the Miami 7-yard line, Mark Sanchez threw an interception to safety Chris Clemons. On second and goal from the 2-yard line on the play before, Tim Tebow came in, and this happened:
