Experts weigh in on who will win the Week 3 divisional showdown between the Jets and Dolphins.

Jostling for position in what could turn into a wide-open AFC East, the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins do battle in Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season.

After an impressive season opener against the Buffalo Bills, the Jets offense struggled last Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, leaving many questions as to whether they can silence the skeptics and consistently move the ball down the field.

And while it would be easy to say that the Dolphins are inferior to the Jets, they too sit at 1-1 after defeating the Oakland Raiders last week and could give New York some problems.

So just how do you pick a game that, because of the small sample size of both teams with plenty of question marks, could go either way?

Between ESPN, Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sports, the unanimous choice is the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets, but a few experts whose opinions and insight we so value are picking Miami to earn a key home victory. Additionally, a computer, ESPN's AccuScore, projects the Dolphins as the winner.

While New York is arguably the safer selection, it should be noted that the Jets did lose to Miami at Sun Life Stadium to close out the 2011 regular season.
