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 possession to force the second interception of the day by defensive end Randy Starks.

After Dan Carpenter kicked his third of four field goals on the day to give Miami a 16-10 lead, the Jets worked their way down the field. Sanchez then misfired on a short-pass play attempt to running back Shonn Greene, resulting in an interception for linebacker Marvin Mitchell with three minutes to play.
