Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets – Black Friday NFL Action

Thanksgiving Day was loaded with some great NFL action, but things aren’t going to slow down on Black Friday either. The Miami Dolphins are set to visit the New York Jets for some Black Friday football action, and this is a terrific rivalry. 

Miami is coming into this game with a record of 7-3, and they are sitting atop the standings in the AFC East. The Dolphins have gone just 3-2 in their last five games, and they have to find a way to get some momentum back.

The New York Jets are heading in the opposite direction as they have now dropped three straight games to fall to 4-6 on the year. There is still a chance to make the playoffs for this team, but it’s going to have to start with a win on Friday. 

The Miami Dolphins are 9.5-point betting favorites over the New York Jets in this NFL game on Friday afternoon. 

Dolphins Scoring Some Points

The Miami Dolphins come into this Week 12 matchup averaging 30.5 points per game, and they do a ton of damage through the air. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has thrown for 2,934 yards and 21 touchdowns this season, and he has also been extremely accurate with his deep ball. 

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has 79 receptions for 1,222 yards this season, and he is on pace to shatter the single season receiving yards record. Miami also has some other weapons, and that is going to be a big key against this solid Jets defense. 

There have been some issues on defense for this team in 2023 as they are allowing nearly 24 points per game. It’s not as if the defense has just been giving up points in a hurry, but that unit has been on the field a ton this season due to the quick-strike offense. 

Jets Have to Defend

The New York Jets continue to be without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but there is a chance that he will return at some point this season. New York has allowed just 20.4 points per game this season, but that defense has been on the field way too long. 

Look for the Jets to try to create some turnovers in this game, as they have to find a way to put the offense in a perfect position to score. Even though the Jets are facing a Miami defense that isn’t great, New York is scoring just 15.0 points per game. 

Running back Breece Hall is going to have to be a weapon in this game as he has 544 rushing yards and 4.7 yards per carry. New York will need to slow this game down with the football in order to keep the explosive Dolphins off the field.

Dolphins Destroy the Jets

Miami has not been playing their best football of late, but this offense still has the ability to light up the scoreboard in a hurry. The Dolphins are facing a solid defense, but it’s not going to be hard for Miami to find the end zone a ton in this game. 

This New York Jets team is in danger of falling out of the race altogether, and it’s going to be hard for this team to keep it all together. New York has an offense that just can’t score enough points to win games, and this game will get away from them in a hurry. 

Bet the Miami Dolphins -9.5 as the visitors will have no trouble going on the road to New York and picking up a double-digit win over the Jets.
