ANALYSIS

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins Prediction, Pick, Odds: Will the Dolphins Hang on Without Tua In Week 5?

The New York Jets take on the Tua-less Miami Dolphins in their Week Five matchup. The biggest storyline of the game is Tua Tagovailoa, who’s out with an injury after a rough two weeks of injuries. The Dolphins will have to navigate a way to win with Teddy Bridgewater to maintain their 3-1 season. The Jets will try to piggyback off an impressive win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

The Jets are 2-2 and will have the opportunity to pick up a winning record against a solid team.

Jets vs. Dolphins Prediction

The New York Jets have been up and down this season, and their main issue has been finding consistency on offense. Their starting QB in Zach Wilson finally made his return in last week’s win, where he picked up 252 yards on 18-for-36 passing. He threw for and caught a touchdown while throwing two interceptions. I expect Wilson to improve week by week, as his Week Four game was essentially his Week One game coming off an injury. 

The Jets' offense still has its weapons, as both Breece Hall and Michael Carter have nearly split the rushes on the ground this season, with Hall leading the team with 178 rushing yards this season. 

Garrett Wilson is the WR1 and has caught 20 of his 39 targets this season, but he now has his QB1 to improve chemistry with and be able to catch more accurate passes. Corey Davis has led the team in receiving yards with 261 compared to Wilsons’ 255 yards. 

Their offense is now playing together and now can start to build real chemistry and put it all together as Zach Wilson will now be playing in his second week. 

For the Dolphins, they’ll be without their main source of offense as Tua Tagovailoa will miss their matchup. Teddy Bridgewater will likely be the QB under center. Of course, he’ll be playing with their weapons in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, who make up one of the most talented and quickest wide receiver duos in the league. 

Tyreek Hill has put together an incredible season through his four games, with 477 yards on 31 catches through four games, while catching two touchdowns. His partner, Waddle, has picked up 381 yards and three touchdowns this season, which has been an incredible season as well. Playing with their backup quarterback, the two are going to have to be incredible playmakers in this matchup to keep the offense moving. 

The two teams have let up a solid amount of yards on the defensive side of the ball. The Dolphins, who have played some good teams to start the season, have given up an average of 414 yards per game. The Jets have let up 339 yards per game. This game could turn into a shootout quite easily, as the Jets haven’t averaged but 19 points per game, but they’ll get the opportunities on the offensive end to put up the points, they just have to avoid turnovers and find the end zone. 

The same goes for the Dolphins, they’ll be able to beat the Jets' defense, but Bridgewater has to be able to avoid or limit turnovers while letting his playmakers make big plays. With the star power that they have, though, I still like them to take this game.
