Ryan Tannehill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Miami Dolphins to a 23-3 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. The Dolphins also drove the ever struggling rookie quarterback Geno Smith out of the game, sending the team's shaky situation at that position into a deeper mess while also damaging their playoff chances. The Jets lost their third straight, and now Rex Ryan is forced to consider who will start next week against Oakland: Smith, Matt Simms or David Garrard, who hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2010.
Smith was booed loudly at times throughout by the MetLife Stadium crowd while going 4 for 10 for 29 yards with an interception. He badly missed David Nelson on two open throws that were both 5 yards of more off target and out of bounds. He has one touchdown and 11 interceptions in his past seven games and once again could not get the offense moving.
Matt Simms came in to cheers to start the third quarter, but didn't fare well either going 9 for 18 for 79 yards with an interception and was sacked three times.
Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace caught touchdown passes for Miami, which converted two turnovers into 10 points. Tannehill finished 28 of 43 with an interception as the Dolphins took control in the second half after dominating the stat sheet in the first two quarters. Miami ran more plays (50) in the first half than the Jets had total yards. Hartline led the Dolphins with nine receptions for 127 yards, and Tannehill topped 3,000 yards passing for each of his first two seasons in the NFL.
