New, comments

New York Jets (1-1) vs. Miami Dolphins (2-0)

When: 8:20 p.m. Sunday, NBC

SB Nation Jets: Gang Green Nation

SB Nation Dolphins: The Phinsider

Breakdown: We know what we're going to get with the Jets defense. What we don't know is which Mark Sanchez we're going to get. If the Week 2 (2000-plus yards and three touchdowns) Sanchez shows up, the Jets will roll. Either way this should be a very tight, AFC East divisional matchup.

Player to Watch: LaDainian Tomlinson. He had over 100 total yards last week and he can help Mark Sanchez, who's another key to the game. Tomlinson has always been a terrific pass-catcher so if he can consistently be an outlet for Sanchez, he could see some significant time with the ball in his hands.

Line: Dolphins are two point favorites.

Prediction: Maybe I'm still caught up in the preseason hype surrounding the Jets but I'm betting on Rex Ryan to pull this one out.
