Dolphins rip Jets behind Tannehill's 331 yards

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Ryan Tannehill threw for 331 yards and two touchdown passes, leading Miami to a 23-3 victory over the listless New York Jets on Sunday that kept the Dolphins' playoff hopes alive.

With the AFC East rivals approaching the game as a must-win, the Dolphins (6-6) played with more of a sense of urgency while sending the Jets (5-7) to their third straight loss.

New York also has a quarterback controversy on its hands as Geno Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms after a dismal first half.

Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace had touchdown receptions for Miami, while Tannehill finished 28 for 43 with an interception.

Smith was 4 of 10 for 29 yards with an interception and an 8.3 quarterback rating before being replaced by Simms, who went 9 of 18 for 79 yards and an INT as New York's postseason hopes were severely damaged.
