12. Miami Dolphins (16)

All hope seemed lost for the Miami Dolphins heading into the fourth quarter against the New York Jets when considering the team was trailing by 14 points, but give this team credit for never giving up, and rallying when needed the most. Not only did the Dolphins score 17 unanswered points to win the game, but the final points came on the game-winning field goal following a big interception thanks to a costly mistake by Josh McCown late in the game.

As for the quarterback situation, it looks like Matt Moore is going to be Miami’s leader on offense after Jay Cutler was forced to leave the game with what appears to be cracked ribs. And with the Dolphins having a short week due to a Thursday night meeting with the Baltimore Ravens, the Dolphins have no choice but to prepare with Moore moving forward, who will most likely be playing with an extra chip on his shoulder.

Keep in mind that Moore was expected to take over the starting role for Miami when Ryan Tannehill went down before the team decided to convince Cutler to come out of retirement. At least from Moore’s perspective, having effective weapons like Jarvis Landry will make the job much easier in what should be a touch matchup against the Ravens’ defense on Thursday.
