The AFC East is the only division in the NFL in which every team has a non-losing record. However, that will change this Sunday if the Jets lose to Miami. Survivor Pick: Miami.

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-3, 38.5)

It’s the final meeting of the season between these two. The Fins were 5.5-point favorites at the Jets in Week 3 and New York won 20-6. Josh McCown threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson, and Bilal Powell ran for a score. The Jets held the ball for 36:08 and the Fins had just 225 yards. Jay Cutler was 26 of 44 for 220 yards with a touchdown and a pick. Jay Ajayi was held to 16 yards on 11 carries. That was the start of the Jets’ shocking three-game winning streak, which ended Sunday in a 24-17 win over the Patriots in which the Jets were hosed on a controversial call. New York appeared to cut a 10-point lead to 24-21 early in the fourth quarter when tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins took a short pass from McCown and reached over the goal line for a 4-yard touchdown. But a review showed that ASJ slightly lost control of the ball as he was crossing the plane of the goal line and it was ruled a touchback – even though the ball never hit the ground. NFL senior vice president of officiating Al Riveron said it was "clear and obvious" that Seferian-Jenkins fumbled and that the call on the field -- touchdown -- was rightly overturned. Not sure I agree.

  • Favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
  • Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.

Would the Jets consider trading McCown to the Packers? I’m just thinking out loud, but Green Bay clearly needs QB help with Aaron Rodgers now done for the year. McCown has played relatively well and threw for 354 yards and two scores vs. New England and isn’t in the Jets’ future plans at age 38. Powell missed the Pats game with a calf injury but might return here. Dolphins fans were calling for Cutler’s head after ugly offensive losses to the Jets and Saints, but Miami has won back-to-back games since. The Dolphins upset the Falcons 20-17 in Atlanta on Sunday, rallying from a 17-point halftime deficit. Cutler had two touchdown passes but just 151 yards (he did have five passes dropped). Cutler was 12 of 15 for 109 yards and a touchdown when the Falcons brought pressure. Ajayi broke out of a slump with 130 yards on 26 carries. Center Mike Pouncey, the team’s best offensive lineman, is in the concussion protocol.

  • Under is 5-0 in Jets last 5 vs. AFC East.
  • Under is 6-0 in Dolphins last 6 games overall.
