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.

The Jets have a new weapon on offense -- 286-pound defensive lineman-turned-fullback Lawrence Thomas. He caught a 15-yard pass out of the backfield, nearly breaking it for a touchdown. Little-known fact: Thomas was a fullback early in his career with Michigan State, where he blocked for Le'Veon Bell. "Oh, that was amazing. It was pretty exciting to have the ball in my hands," said Thomas, who set up a TD.

Big Blue couldn't complete the comeback, but the effort won't go for nothing if Eli Manning can maintain the magic he discovered in the fourth quarter Sunday. It was by far Manning's most productive 15-minute period this season.
