Line: Dolphins by 2 1/2

Last week, Miami beat Arizona on a field goal as time expired, but suffered a major loss. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill sprained his anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss multiple weeks. The Dolphins, sitting on the edge of a playoff berth, will start veteran Matt Moore (6-6 as Miami’s starter, all in 2011). The Dolphins beat New York 27-23 in Week 9. The Jets have moved to former Baylor star Bryce Petty at quarterback. He earned his first win last week with the help of a 145-yard rushing performance from Bilal Powel.
