Rise and shine football fans! For the first time this year, out of three occasions over the next month, the NFL will be kicking off its weekend early in the morning from London.
In this match-up, AFC East rivals will clash, with hopes of eradicating fans’ memories of the team’s home losses last week.
The Jets have never played in London before, while the Dolphins are 1-1 across the pond. The lost the first ever game in London to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants by a field goal in 2007, before rolling past the Oakland Raiders by a 38-14 margin a year ago. They were in disarray then, just as they are now, but the win propelled them to a solid run the rest of the way. As a result, many Dolphin fans are hoping for the same.
Unfortunately for them, the Jets are simply better. They’re better on defense shockingly better on defense, and also have a more reliable offense as well. They should’ve beaten Philadelphia last week, but failed to complete the comeback. I expect to see them come out humgry, jilted and angry. I see the Fins putting up somewhat a challenge, but the Jets should roll in this one. Prediction: Jets 30, Dolphins 21.
