New York Teams

Unsung hero from the Jets' win: Seldom-used RG Dakota Dozier, who started for the injured Brian Winters, did a solid job against Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh. Many figured Suh would wreak havoc against the Jets' backup, but he had a relatively quiet day. Dozier allowed a sack, according to Pro Football Focus, but it wasn't entirely his fault. Josh McCown had to step up when the pocket collapsed and he ran into Dozier's man, DE Andre Branch.

Knicks GM Scott Perry on the Carmelo Anthony trade: "We acquired two 25-year-old players in this deal that we can develop, while sticking with our overall strategy of emphasizing youth and athleticism. With this trade, we have added scoring and aggressiveness to our frontcourt, and bolstered the team's perimeter shooting. We are glad to have finalized a trade that made sense for all of us."

Knicks president Steve Mills on the Carmelo Anthony trade: "This is a deal we feel works for both this franchise and Carmelo. We thank him for his seven seasons in a Knicks uniform and all that he accomplished off the court for the City of New York by using his platform to address social issues. We will continue to focus on this team looking forward towards the immediate and long-term future. As we have said recently, this is a new beginning for the New York Knicks."

Some offensive snap count observations: FB Shane Smith didn't play a single snap. RB Paul Perkins played almost 50% of the snaps and had 30 total yards. That's not going to get it done. At tight end Evan Engram is playing a lot. The rookie was on the field for 57 of 69 snaps (83%). That was more than Odell Beckham Jr. (55 of 69) who is recovering from an ankle injury.

Jets offensive snap analysis (based on 63): RB -- Bilal Powell 28, Matt Forte 23, Lawrence Thomas 14, Eli McGuire 12; WR -- Robby Anderson 49, Jermaine Kearse 45, Jeremy Kerley 34, Charone Peake 16, ArDarius Stewart 5; TE -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins 48, Will Tye 22, Neal Sterling 7. Analysis: Thomas, a defensive lineman, made a surprise appearance at fullback. He caught a pass and nearly scored. Heavy workload for Seferian-Jenkins in his '17 debut. Stewart barely got on the field, although he did make a sensational catch.

The Jets' defense was on point yesterday after a terrible start to the season. It held Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi to minus-6 rushing yards before initial contact, per ESPN Stats & Info. He was contacted at or behind the line on eight of his 11 rushes. Miami finished with minus-3 yards before contact, their second-lowest in a game since 2009. Wow.
