G3: N.Y. STINKIN' JETS 23, DOLPHINS 20 (Final/OT): OT: Heartbreaker. What a way to lose.

Tannehill 41-yard completion to Brian Hartline helps set up Carpenter for 48-yard FG, but it's wide left. ... Miami forces Jets punt. ..... 4Q: Carpenter 41-yard FG ties it 20-20 with 16 seconds left. ... Jets with first lead, 20-17, on Jeremy Kerley 7-yard TD pass from Mark Sanchez with 3:01 to play. Jimmy Wilson the defensive victim. ... Carpenter wide on 47-yard FG try. Big miss. ... Huge goal-line stand for Miami defense limits NYJ to 20-yard FG and 17-13 score after Richard Marshall pass interference in end zone gives Planes a 1st-and-goal at 1. ..... 3Q: Oy. Miami pass defense beaten for 66-yard catch and run by Jeremy Kerley, giving Planes 1st-and-goal at 5 as quarter ends. ... FB Jorvorskie Lane bulls in from the 1 for a 17-10 Miami lead. ... Darrelle Revis wheeled off on cart for Jets with knee injury, his day done. Big break for Miami. ... Lamar Miller pops outside for a nifty little 22-yard run. ... Tannehill must throw to win this game. ... Funny moment. After stadium "Kiss Cam," Jumbotron showed Jets Tebow and Clyde Gates, the ex-Dolphin. And teammate Chaz Schilens pushed them together as if to encourage a kiss. ... It's as if Miami is afraid to let Tannehill pass. ... Jets poised to parlay Thomas fumble into points until two huge plays by Dolphins D. First, Randy Starks drops Tebow for five-yard loss. Then Chris Clemons intercepts Sanchez in end zone.

Reggie Bush trotting on sideline but not in game (knee), his returnquestionable. ..... Half: defense is dominating Mark Sanchez, who is 8-for-19 for 77 yards with an INT. But Dolphins must get more on the offensive end. Much as they want to feature Reggie Bush, might need to unleash Ryan Tannehill (6-for-11, 62 yards) a bit more in second half. ..... 2Q: Reggie Bush down, hurt, in final minute (uh oh), but walks off on own power so seems OK. ..... Punter Brandon Fields roughed in end zone; Dolphins keep ball. ... First little on-field skirmish inside of a minute. Unsportsmanlike conduct called on MIA tackle Jonathan Martin. ...

Light rain falling. ... Tim Tebow takes one snap, hands off, for N.Y. ... Daniel Thomas 1-yard TD run and a 7-0 Miami lead, a 47-yard drive preceded by the interception. ... Richard Marshall picks off Mark Sanchez. What,no "We want Tebow!" chant? ..... Original post: You know from a previous blogpost that the Jets are the Stinkin' 1aa1dol11Jets to me: "J-E-R-K -- JERKS!" It stems from the fact this is a visceral rivalry, one you tend to take personally. (Why is that?) Anyway, I like Miami in a small upset, and can only hope I am thinking logically, and not based on an irrational hatred of Fireman Ed. I just don't know that NYJ is good enough to be favored here. I'm also banking on the idea the Miami we saw vs. Oakland last week was something closer to real than a mirage. I think Reggie Bush can run on this defense, and I think Miami's D can make it tough enough on Mark Sanchez that the Tim Tebow talk blooms anew. Can we get a little "We Want Tebow!" chant today, please?  (My Sunday Random Evidence notes column has a special welcome for Tebow here). The key for Miami will be the play -- and poise -- of rookie QB Ryan Tannehill. Rex Ryan's Jets love to blitz, and CB Darrelle Revis' return from a concussion will help free them to do so. I see Tannehill handling it. My pick: Miami, 20-17.
