After last week's embarrassing 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, giving Andy Dalton's team their first win of the season, the New York Jets needed a strong start this week at home versus the Miami Dolphins.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Right on cue, they got just that from San Darnold and the Jets offense that put together just six points and failed to score a touchodwn in Cincinnati last weekend.

Darnold is 10-for-16 with 141 passing yards, two touchdown passes and most importantly, zero turnovers.

In the second quarter, Darnold connected with wide receiver Robby Anderson for a 26-yard touchdown reception.

Then, with less than two minutes remaining before halftime, Darnold found Demaryius Thomas for his first touchdown grab as a Jet.

The Jets would go on to defeat Miami 22-21. New York lost to Miami back in Week 9, 26-18, giving Miami at the time their first win of the season.

Head coach Adam Gase coached Miami from 2016-18. He's 5-8 in his first season with the Jets.
