Jay Ajayi proves as much in grinding Jets as he did in 200-yd games

Jay Ajayi unwittingly turned himself into a target for the Jets by rushing for 200 yards in each of his previous two games, store and they hounded him from the onset Sunday.

New York came in as the No. 1 run defense in the NFL, a daunting hurdle in Ajayi’s quest to become the first man ever to go for 200 three times in a row, and defensive line’s volume climbed after the Jets stopped him for a loss three times on the Dolphins’ opening drive. When he finally broke through for a 20-yard touchdown run, he sprinted straight through the end zone and swung his fist at the padded wall behind it, then ripped his helmet off and stomped triumphantly down Miami’s sideline.

“There was a lot of talking on that drive, and I was a little bit upset,” he said. “I was just taking out some anger, I guess.”

Ajayi fell short of 200 in the Dolphins’ 27-23 victory at Hard Rock Stadium, but put forth an effort that was impressive in its own way. He’s still fighting the perception that this is merely a fluke, and he put a dent in those doubts by going for 111 yards on 24 carries.

The old Dolphins would have lost, <a href=cialis but these new Dolphins found a way to win” width=”960″ height=”822″ />

This was a game the other Dolphins would have lost. They would have found a way to send their fans home shaking heads, store leaving an emptying stadium to the taunting derision of celebrating New York Jets fans.

And it was happening here Sunday, right before our eyes, another victory unraveling, another season dissolving by degrees.

Punter Matt Darr muffs a good snap, hands New York the ball at the Miami 18, and a moment later a touchdown pass has the Jets ahead 23-20 with the clock bearing down on five minutes left — after the Dolphins had led almost the entire game.

A stadium filled with nearly 66,000 fans sagged, a nearly palpable “Here we go again” rising into the late-afternoon air. Jets fans, reanimated, were heckling with delight, as Jets fans do.

Then the strangest thing happened.

The Dolphins found a way. The right way. They took a loss and turned it upside down. They went and won a third consecutive game, 27-23, leveling the season record at 4-4 and allowing playoff hopes to breathe again in Miami.

“I always wanted to be the type of football team that finds a way to win,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill was saying.

Done. The previous two wins were physical spectacles over Pittsburgh and Buffalo in which Jay Ajayi topped 200 yards rushing each time and the result was convincing, never in doubt.

This was much different — better, in a way. This game was taut as guitar strings. It teetered. It required the Dolphins to find a well and summon something special from its depth.

It was one of the most resourceful victories we have seen from this franchise in a while. This team, reviving itself from a 1-4 hole, has showed impressive resilience.

Muhammad Wilkerson a no-show at Jets' birthday celebration

New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson skipped an Oct. 22 walk-through/defensive meeting in which there were plans to serve cake to celebrate his 27th birthday, a league source confirmed.

The no-show, first reported by the NFL Network, came to light Monday — one day after Wilkerson and fellow defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson were benched for the first quarter of the Jets’ 27-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Coach Todd Bowles again refused to explain why he benched two of his best players, but a source said it was because they were late to a team meeting last week.

“It’s a coach’s decision,” Bowles said Monday, repeating what he said after the game. “My decisions I make outside of injuries and football are usually handled in-house. I don’t divulge that kind of information, one way or the other.”

Wilkerson’s absence Oct. 22 was the day before the Jets faced the Baltimore Ravens at home. He missed that game because of an ankle injury and was back in the lineup the following week against the Cleveland Browns.

Wilkerson and Richardson have been reprimanded on more than one occasion this season, a source said, but Sunday was the first time it resulted in the loss of playing time in 2016. The Jets tried to trade Richardson before last week’s deadline in part because of concern about his attitude, sources said.

Bowles said he has no problem with either player. Asked if he is satisfied with their level of commitment, he said, “Yes, I am.”

“I know how we handle things in here and everybody is accountable for their actions, and we handle things in here,” Bowles said. “I’m perfectly fine with those two commitments.”

Neither player stayed in the locker room after the game to speak with reporters, an apparent violation of the NFL’s media policy.

The Dolphins have been searching for Dan Marino —but found Larry Csonka instead

Miami is a special place. It is about sun and fun and good times and vacations and vibrant energy. And the way people down here grew up watching football — with Dan Marino throwing the ball all over the place — defined a generation. It also colored the opinion of a generation.

That’s why South Florida has been so anxious about finding the next Marino the past 16 years.

That’s why even as Ryan Tannehill stepped up and played quarterback for the Dolphins better than anyone before him (except Chad Pennington for one year), tadalafil everyone kept wondering when Tannehill would look more like and play more like Marino.

And when Tannehill didn’t, viagra sale as he rarely has, fans have convinced themselves the Dolphins’ quarterback search has to continue.

Well, no it doesn’t.

It doesn’t because these Dolphins have done something that no other Miami team or iteration of the organization has done: These Dolphins gave up on trying to replace Dan Marino and instead are replacing Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris and Jim Kiick.

(Those guys, by the way, were so good in their day they won two Super Bowls. Just saying).

The Dolphins running game and indeed the emerging talent in the Dolphins backfield is becoming the core weapon for this team. Behind a good offensive line, Jay Ajyai, rookie Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams are helping to carry the offense now.

On Sunday, for example, Ajayi carried the rushing load again. He gained 111 yards on 24 carries. That happened against the No. 1 ranked run defense in the NFL. Ajayi’s downhill running fits the Csonka mold and role for this group. Indeed, Ajayi has become the face of the offense.

How Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake outran the New York Jets

MIAMI GARDENS — It was all weighing on Kenyan Drake. Zero rushes and zero pass catches in the past two games. Coaches stressing the need to always be professional.

And in the second quarter against the rival New York Jets on Sunday, thumb an illegal block above the waist by Drake that actually nullified a punt return for a touchdown by fellow rookie Jakeem Grant.

Drake was drafted in the third round to create touchdowns, malady not nullify them.

And so with the Miami Dolphins trailing 23-20 and 5:47 left at Hard Rock Stadium, buy Drake and Grant were awaiting a kickoff from Nick Folk.

“I owed him one, point blank,” Drake said of Grant. “It was a tough call and he had a great return. I told him right before that, ‘If he kicks to either one of us, we’ve got to make them pay. It doesn’t matter if we’re rookies. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done before, in this game or in our careers. We’ve got to make this next play count.’ And we did.”

Grant received the kick at Miami’s 4-yard line.

Miami running back Damien Williams was a blocker on the play.

“Really, they were trying to kick it away from Jakeem,” Williams said. “He had just taken it to the crib and it got called back unfortunately. But you know, they kicked a short ball, which is bad on their part.”

Drake began to accelerate, just as he had in Alabama’s national championship game victory in January.

As he ran toward a wall of blockers, one by one, Miami washed out potential tacklers in green.

Mike Hull had his man. So did Michael Thomas. And Spencer Paysinger. And Walt Aikens. A crease was developing.

“You have to play every (kickoff return) like we’re taking it out, so get on your blocks,” Aikens said. “Get on your man, you never know. Special teams can change the whole dynamic of a game.”

Dolphins punter Matt Darr knows, having flat-out dropped a punt that set up a Jets go-ahead score.

But back to Drake, who burst through the seam and easily outlasted a dive by Jets defensive back Buster Skrine and a chasing Juston Burris.

In the end, it was Drake and Folk.

“I knew with (Drake’s) speed and what he did in college, I already knew what time it was,” Damien Williams said. “He was going to the house.”

Miami vs. the New Orleans Saints in England was announced late last week, sales with the game to be played in 2017 on a date to be determined and with the Dolphins as the “home” team.

That will make three London games in the space of four years for the Dolphins, with two of them designated as home games, which pretty much has me looking for the Brexit ramp on this football diplomacy stuff.

Not that Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi minds. He was born in London and will get rock-star treatment upon his return there in an NFL uniform.




On Saturday Oct. 15, medications the Jacksonville University Dolphins took on the Dayton Flyers at D.B. Milne Field. The Flyers came out victorious in a 36-16 win.

An undrafted rookie signed by the Houston Texans in 2014, dosage Warmsley spent time with the Seahawks and the Dolphins. The move could be a sign that the Dolphins are ready to bring back one of their injured players.
