Highlights from NY Jets’ underwhelming collapse in 24-17 loss vs. Dolphins

Despite 141 yards on eight Elijah Moore receptions, the New York Jets couldn’t earn a divisional victory on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

Team history from Moore (as he became the first Jets rookie receiver to earn 140 yards in a single game since Rob Moore in 1990) wasn’t enough to top the equally woebegone Miami Dolphins, as the visitors earned a 24-17 win on Sunday afternoon. The Dolphins (4-7) won their third in a row through 273 yards and two aerial scores from Tua Tagovailoa.

The Dolphins got things started with an 11-play, 83-yard drive as Jaylen Waddle scored on a one-yard punch-in on their opening drive, good for the first rushing score of the first-round pick’s career.
