The Miami Dolphins dominated from start to finish in a 30-0 shutout of the New York Jets in Week 15.

Raheem Mostert’s 19th touchdown of the season, a Miami Dolphins record, opened the scoring in the first quarter.

A 37-yard field goal from Jason Sanders extended the Dolphins’ lead to 10-0 early in the second quarter, before a 60-yard pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Jaylen Waddle made it 17-0. Mostert then made it 20 scores on the year from a yard out to bring the score to 24-0 at halftime, and Miami held on to the shutout through the final 30 minutes of action.

Offensive spotlight: No Tyreek Hill? No problem for the Miami Dolphins offense. In Hill’s absence, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle stepped up and had his best game of the year. The 2021 first-round draft pick recorded eight catches for 142 yards and a touchdown. No other Dolphins receiver picked up more than 32 yards.

Defensive spotlight: The Dolphins’ pass rush wreaked havoc on the Jets' offense, with Bradley Chubb racking up three sacks and forcing a pair of fumbles. Zach Sieler also recorded a sack, and Emmanuel Ogbah, Duke Riley, Andrew Van Ginkel and Christian Wilkins each notched half-sacks.

Rookie spotlight: Jets wide receiver Xavier Gipson saw six targets, trailing only tight end Tyler Conklin for the team lead. He pulled in just two of them, though, picking up 29 yards. Center Joe Tippmann started in the middle of the Jets' offensive line for the seventh straight game.
