Quick Take: Jets-Dolphins

In Brief

» Last meeting:Ronnie Brown scored on a 2-yard run with 6 seconds left to give the Dolphinsa dramatic 31-27 victory over the Jets in Week 5.
» Streaks: The Jets have won eight of the last 11 meetings and hold a 46-40-1 overall series edge, including the playoffs.
» Last week: New York snapped a three-game losing skid with a 38-0 shellacking of Oakland. ... Miami squandered a 21-point first-half lead and lost to New Orleans, 46-34.

Keep your eye on ...Rex Ryan's adjustment to the Wildcat: The Jets' new coach prides himself on his defensive schemes, but the Dolphins' Wildcat formation completely flummoxed New York's defense in Week 5. Ryan will no doubt have some fresh ideas in place to stop the Dolphins' unique attack, but whether they will work remains to be seen.

Shonn Greene stepping on the big stage: With RB Leon Washington out for the season, New York will now be relying heavily on the rookie Greene to help Thomas Jones carry the rushing load. He responded last week with 144 yards on the ground and two touchdowns, but this is the first time he will face a defense that game plans for him.

The Dolphins' desperation: Miami has played very well at times this season, but a brutal schedule has left it with a 2-4 record and a firm hold on last place in the AFC East. If the Dolphins are to defend their AFC East title, they must get on a roll soon -- starting with this Sunday's game against the Jets.
