You Want It, You Got It – Young MC
Let me start by saying this, if you cheered when QB Jay Cutler exited to the locker room
with a chest injury— you’re a piece of shit, period.
(Back to our regularly scheduled recap)
The Miami Dolphins are 4-2 and while I haven’t been the fondest of all the “We Want Moore” chants, thank you Matt Moore.
While Jay Cutler started the game strong (12-16, 138 yards, 2 TDS, 1 INT) his 3rd quarter exit of the game with a chest injury, lead to the official start of— the Matt Moore experiment.
Down 21-14 in the 3rd quarter, Moore continued on the downward trend of the Miami offense, completing 2-5 for 41 yards and an INT. But let’s remember…. my word for the 2017 Dolphins’ was resilience, and they delivered.
On offense, Matt Moore finished the game 13-of-21 for 188 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Most importantly, he commanded arguably one of the most struggling offenses in the NFL down the field on multiple occasions. Moore & Co. were able to tie the game on a 54-yard drive that capitalized on WR Kenny Stills, who scored his second TD of the game with 6:19 left in the game
Defensively, the 3rd best defense in points held solid once more in the 2nd half.
In the fourth quarter, the #Jets offense ran 13 plays. They netted (-)22 yards. Negative 22.

The Jets, who took over at its own 15 with 47 seconds to go — tried to open up the field early on a 1st and 10. McCown, looked for WR Jermaine Kearse on an out route, but was picked off by by CB Bobby McCain.

The comeback, which was sealed with a 39-yard FG from Cody Parkey, places the Dolphins 5th in the AFC.
K Cody Parkey is one of just five NFL kickers to make 100 percent of their field goal attempts this year. He's 7-for-7.

With the Ravens (3-4) less than four days away, and reports of Jay Cutler suffering broken ribs, according to Ian Rapport, it looks like the offense will look for more wins from Matt Moore.
Kenny Stills –
Kenny “War Paint” Stills receives the week-7 game ball for his six reception, 85 yard, two touchdown performance. Outside of his circus catch from Jay Cutler in the first quarteR, Stills presented stability that the struggling offense desperately needed.
Let’s hope we see more of War Stills in Week 8.
Jarvis Landry –
Your damn right another receiver. A back-up is only as good as his receiving squad, and like Matt Moore… Jarvis Landry preformed.
Juice recorded seven receptions, for 93 yards, one touchdown and has now become one of the most productive WRs in the last three seasons.
The Bad –
Laremy Tunsil –
Dolphins LT Laremy Tunsil is now entering the locker room, as well. Miami getting battered against the Jets.

The Dolphins lost three key players within one quarter.
QB Jay Cutler, DE Andre Branch and LT Laremy Tunsil
While all have significants, the struggles on the O-Line and uncertainly of center Mike Pouncey, make this injury so much worse than initially thought. Hopefully the former first round pick will be ready come Thursday.
The Ugly –
Cheers for Cutler’s….. injury.
Look I get it…. you’re not a fan of Jay Cutler. But this isn’t the first time we’ve cheered for an injury….. within our own F**king team! I’m a fan through and through, but this is a human — a human that helped lead your team over a 17-0 deficit last week.
