Jets Vs. Dolphins 2012: Ugly Game Leaves Injury Scars For Both Fan Bases

Both the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins left New York's 23-20 overtime win with major injury concerns – Miami lost the game but won the war of attrition, as Reggie Bush is apparently OK. Jets starting corner Darrelle Revis, on the other hand, is out for the season – and both left with a feeling of embarrassment at the collective play on Sunday.

New York Jets SB Nation blog Gang Green Nation likened the entire game into a "stumbling" affair, and dubbed the game "The Dirt Bowl":

I would like to make an analogy that my friend Tom noted while we were watching the game. He compared it to a game of chess in which both sides lose their queens (Reggie Bush and Darrelle Revis), but the rest of the pieces on either side are just stumbling, bumbling pawns. I think that's an apt description of what we just witnessed.

Over at The Phinsider, the bumbling antics of head coach Joe Philbin failing to ice the Jets' kicker, in addition to the team's overall play, produced a less eloquent response:

Ouch. Ahhhhhhhh. Nooooooo! That pretty much sums up my reactions to the Miami Dolphins' overtime loss to the New York Jets today. From a dominating first half, to a struggling second half, to a timeout erasing a field goal block, it was just an all-around bad day to be a Dolphins fan.
