I just got to be better.

At times, they couldn't even execute a shotgun snap, as center Spencer Long was responsible for at least a half-dozen off-target snaps. I don't do this for fantasy points.

"We're playing a different guy this week", Gase said.

At 3-6, the Jets likely are doomed to miss the playoffs yet again, and now they must seriously evaluate their rookie quarterback. "I think us as players, we have to kinda come together, especially on the offense, and just pick it up, play at a next level".

"I've got to look at that and find out what everything entails", Dolphins coach Adam Gase said after the game, via the team's official website.

It saw another discouraging outing from rookie quarterback Sam Darnold complete 21-of-39 passes for 229 yards with a career-worst four interception to zero touchdown passes.

It was a frustrating performance for Darnold that saw him struggle to make accurate throws as three of the interceptions that he made were directly at defenders. "I don't like going into the machine and stuff like that", an upbeat James said of getting an MRI after the win. Gase said he didn't know whether Jones was hurt. He was pulled in the fourth quarter, purportedly because of a hand/finger injury.

"I just have to play smarter, play better", he added.

Dolphins: play at Green Bay for the first time since 2010 on November 11. The teams also meet on December 9.

Among the criticisms of Hard Rock Stadium are that the field doesn't drain well and the grass is of poor quality, one source said.

Things aren't going well for the New York Jets and Bart Scott has had just about enough of Todd Bowles' excuses.

Jones, 30, wasn't the first football star to leave mid-game in recent weeks.

NY held Dolphins quarterback Brock Osweiler to 139 yards passing, but the Jets were unable to find the end zone despite outgaining Miami 282-168 on the day.
