New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins – CBS, 1:00 PM

Darnold making better decisions

Sam Darnold has played better in his last four games than he did in his first four games.

Anderson the deep specialist

Robby Anderson continues to be a premier deep threat in the NFL. He’s seen 13 deep targets (five deemed catchable) and has reeled in three receptions for 152 yards and three touchdowns.

Maye's improvement

After a rough rookie season, Marcus Maye has hit his stride en route to career-high grades across the board.

Bowles' strong defense

Todd Bowles is putting together one of the best defensive units he’s had in his coaching tenure with the Jets.

Osweiler & Tannehill not making the big-time throw

Brock Osweiler and Ryan Tannehill have failed to generate big plays for their offense this season, as evidenced by their four big-time throws each.

Kenyan Drake pushing for carries

Kenyan Drake has been the most elusive player in the Dolphins' backfield, but he's still not finding the same heights as he did in 2017.

Howard's elite start has faded

Xavien Howard had a hot start to the season but has cooled off since then. In Weeks 1-3, Howard posted a grade of 72.4, which ranked 13th among corners with at least 150 snaps. In Weeks 4-8, Howard has earned a 59.7 overall grade, which ranks 59th among corners in that span.

The rookie shutdown corner

Rookie corner Minkah Fitzpatrick has been a bright spot on the Dolphins defense this season. As well as allowing a passer rating of just 50.8, he has also allowed 0.56 yards per coverage snap- good for fourth among corners with at least 200 coverage snaps this season.
