How many times have you heard, or read, about the talent on the Jets‘ defensive line? Mo Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams are supposed to dominate. They’re not dominating anything. Perhaps the loss of “Snacks” Harrison was a bigger loss than we all thought. OK, so opponents are averaging just 3.3 yards per carry, which is great. But the defensive front can’t get to the quarterback fast enough to cover for a secondary that sucks right now. So while all the pregame talk will be about Jay and the pair of 200-hundred yard games he can boast about, this will be Ryan Tannehill‘s deal to win or lose. #NYJvsMIA
New York at Miami
One of the bigger disappointments for the Jets this season has to be the play of left tackle Ryan Clady. It’s not like the right side has been much better, but Clady was expected to solidify a position left open when D’Brickashaw Ferguson retired. The former Pro Bowl player for the Broncos has looked like a shell of his former self.
He had trouble last week in pass protection against Cleveland, getting beat several times with hard moves to the inside. He also got beat by Emanuel Ogbah for a sack, although Ogbah wasn’t credited with the sack. He went around Clady and got a hand on Fitzpatrick as others helped clean it up. Clady has to pick up his game in the second half of the season.
The Dolphins have future star in rookie left guard Laremy Tunsil. He was drafted as a tackle, and eventually will move to the left side and be a good one, maybe great even. For now, though, he’s playing left guard next to Brandon Albert and doing a really nice job. He might be the most-athletic guard in the league right now. He’s tough, too.
On a 4-yard touchdown by Jay Ajayi two weeks ago against the Bills, he rooted out Adolphus Washington to open the hole. Then to show off his athletic ability, he got on a double at the point, came off it, and got all over Preston Brown to create a hole for a 12-yard gain by Damien Williams. Ajayi has run for over 200 yards the past two games, and Tunsil is a big reason why. His matchups inside this week with the Jets down linemen will be fun to watch.
