Matt Moore capped a 21-play drive by hitting Charles Clay with a 1-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Miami Dolphins ended the New York Jets' postseason aspirations with a 19-17 home triumph on Sunday. Mark Sanchez tossed a career-worst three interceptions for the Jets (8-8), who suffered their third straight loss and failed in their bid for their third straight postseason appearance. Had New York defeated Miami (6-10), it still would have needed losses by Tennessee and Cincinnati as well as a setback from either Denver or Oakland in order to make the playoffs. With New York nursing a 10-6 lead, the Dolphins began a drive at their own 6-yard line and kept the Jets' defense on the field for 12 1/2 minutes. Moore capped the lengthy drive by rolling to his left before finding Clay for his second 1-yard touchdown reception in as many weeks. Veteran linebacker Jason Taylor, who was playing in the final game of his 15-year career, hit Sanchez on the Jets' next poss...

Teammate says Jets receiver 'quit' on the team

The fact that the Jets will not play in the playoffs is not, by itself, embarrassing.

Teammates of Starks are already taking jabs at him. Defensive...

By GARY MYERS AND MANISH MEHTA   Santonio Holmes was pouting on the field and in the huddle on Sunday and was benched by offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer late in the fourth quarter in Miami, but his attitude for the game was set last week in a meeting Mark Sanchez set up with the ...

Santonio Holmes 'quit' on the Jets in 19-17 loss to the Dolphins

Ryan flying family to New York for Giants game

The last time the Dallas Cowboys were in New York, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan hugged his twin brother, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, at midfield after the Cowboys gave up a fourth quarter lead in the season opener.

Miami Dolphins’ Jason Taylor gives back to community while preparing for retirement

Jason Taylor visited the hospital a few days before Christmas with his wife and three kids. They brought a lot of toys for kids with cancer, burn victims, children with deformities. Taylor's children didn't want to leave, they were having so much fun playing, connecting, giving -- unwrapping, in other words, Dad's real and lasting gifts. Later that night, over prayer...

Jets have a tough decision to make on Holmes
