Why this game is intriguing: We're past writing off the New York Jets, even without Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes. With the way they've played over the past couple weeks, they've put themselves in the mix to compete for all of their preseason goals. All they need to do this week is handle another upstart team we can't write off: the Miami Dolphins. Gone are the days when we thought the game would be too fast for rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Instead, its two division rivals battling for footing in a situation where both have lots of life. Don't be surprised to see Rex Ryan go out of his way to confuse Miami's rookie signal-caller with his schemes, welcoming the reemergence of a Gang Green defense that was supposed to be one of the league's finest.
