Jets lead Dolphins 7-3 after 1st quarter

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 17, 2011
Darrelle Revis ran an interception 100 yards for a touchdown Monday night, giving the New York Jets a 7-3 lead over the Miami Dolphins after one quarter. Matt Moore, playing quarterback with Chad Henne gone for the season after shoulder surgery, threw outside to Brandon Marshall. But the receiver had cut inside, and Revis easily caught the errant pass, then took off the length of the field. Reggie Bush gave Miami a quick start by sprinting around the right side for 36 yards on the Dolphins' first play from scrimmage, but the drive stalled when Moore threw incomplete on third-and-1. Rather than go for it, Miami chose to punt and Brandon Fields' kick was downed at the 2. When the Jets sputtered on offense for the second straight time - making nine of 13 series in which they have gone three-and-out in the last two games - the Dolphins took over at the New York 47. A 20-yard completion to Marshall, who had yet to make good on his promise to get ejected from the game, got the ball to the 10, where the Jets held. Dan Carpenter's 23-yard field goal put Miami on top 3-0, and the Dolphins had the ball back seconds later when a bouncing kickoff ricocheted off blocker Garrett McIntyre to Miami's Austin Spitler at the Jets 18. That's when the All-Pro Revis picked off Moore's pass and weaved through the Dolphins without being touched to tie the longest interception runback in Jets history. Aaron Glenn went 100 yards against Miami in 1996. Miami responded with a 46-yard completion to Marshall as cornerback Antonio Cromartie lost coverage, and was at the New York 4 when the quarter ended.
