Amidst the start of bowl season on this fine Saturday is an NFL game, which will be played this evening in the greater New York City area. An AFC East matchup is on the docket, with one team that remains in the Wild Card hunt traveling North to play a divisional rival whose season is guaranteed to have no more than three games remaining.
The Dolphins and Jets have had very different seasons so far, but the two teams have at least two things in common right now: their original starting quarterbacks are named Ryan and neither will be playing in this game. Ryan Tannehill suffered some sprained knee ligaments last week, which will dictate that Matt Moore gets the start; meanwhile, the Jets benched Ryan Fitzpatrick and will be starting Bryce Petty instead.
It might not be a pretty game, but it’s NFL football, so let this serve as your open thread for this evening’s contest.
