EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- [Update: Kerry Rhodes and Joey Porter just engaged in a shoving match during pregame warmups.
[I guess this will be a physical game as promised.]
This is the Dolphins final game in this facility.
The next time the Dolphins play here in the regular-season, the game will happen in the new facility being built just across from this one.
The Dolphins seem to be the better team to me today. Think about it. Yes, the Dolphins are without Channing Crowder, but the Jets are without nose tackle Kris Jenkins. Reggie Torbor will start for Crowder.
Ted Ginn is active today, but Brian Hartline will start at WR in his place.
Yes, the Dolphins are starting two rookie cornerbacks and they will have their growing pains, but that's not Kurt Warner playing QB for New York today. And the Jets don't have their full set of CBs as Lito Sheppard is out. Dwight Lowery will start at right cornerback in Sheppard's place.
I would tell you the Jets clearly have a special teams advantage and we saw that in the first meeting this year. But Leon Washington is not there anymore as he's now out for the year.
I just see the Dolphins as the more physical of these two very physical teams.
The Miami inactives today are Crowder, Andrew Gardner, Lionel Dotson, Lydon Murtha, Kory Sheets, Patrick Turner and Quentin Moses.
