The New York Jets escaped an ugly game at Sun Life Stadium against the Miami Dolphins with a 23-20 win in overtime. The win was already a watered-down one based on the team's performance, but add to that the Darrelle Revis injury and a damper is really put on the victory. In the end, the Jets are 2-1 overall and 2-0 in the AFC East.

It was an ugly, ugly win for the New York Jets over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Even the game-winning field goal sequence was a bit of a disaster, with the Jets saved by Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin deciding to take a timeout to ice Nick Folk. The team continued with the play as the whistle blew and the Dolphins actually blocked the field goal and went into a premature celebration – only to find out that the timeout had been taken. The team got back on the ball and did it again, as Nick Folk booted it through for a Jets win.

Mark Sanchez and the offense struggled mightily. The offensive line struggled to get any push at the line of scrimmage and also struggled to protect Mark Sanchez. Mark Sanchez missed some throws, made some ill-advised throws and also was let down by some of his receivers who dropped passes.

The defense wasn't very impressive either, getting gashed by Reggie Bush before he was forced to leave with an injury. The Jets defense did put up the team's first touchdown since the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers, with LaRon Landry returning an interception for a touchdown early in the third quarter. This was the second time in three games that the Jets defense was unable to record a sack. The defensive line was dominated by Miami's offensive line most of the day.

The Jets will certainly take the win, but there's a ton of room to improve. The San Francisco 49ers will visit MetLife Stadium one week from today, coming off their first loss of the season against the Minnesota Vikings.
