Tannehill injury can't stop Dolphins' blowout of Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Matt Moore stepped in for an injured Ryan Tannehill, and the Miami Dolphins didn't miss a beat Sunday, rolling past the New York Jets 30-9 for their third consecutive victory.

Moore threw a touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano, Olivier Vernon recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown and blocked a field goal, and the Dolphins smothered Mark Sanchez and the Jets' offense.

After a week of trash talking between both sides, the argument was won on the field by the Dolphins (4-3) -- and it was no contest. They were helped by some hideous play by the Jets (3-5), who have lost two in a row.

Tannehill injured his left knee and quadriceps muscle on a third-down sack by Calvin Pace on the Dolphins' second possession of the game. Moore finished 11-of-19 passing for 131 yards.

Sanchez was 28 of 54 for 283 yards and one touchdown with one interception.
