The Miami Dolphins will look to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they visit the New York Jets in Week 5 NFL action. Miami dropped a Week 4 contest to the Cincinnati Bengals, 27-15, and lost starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the process. Time for Teddy Bridgewater to step up.

Meanwhile, the Jets put together another fourth quarter comeback in their 24-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Rookie running back Breece Hall scored the first rushing touchdown of his NFL career and starting quarterback Zach Wilson threw for 252 yards in his season debut.

Dolphins vs Jets Prediction & Pick

Yes, seeing Tagovailoa go down with a head injury is a brutal blow given how well he has performed this season. The good news is that Miami invested at the backup QB spot this past offseason. Bridgewater is an eight-year pro that has made a Pro Bowl and owns a career record of 33-30.

He should have no trouble leading the Dolphins on scoring drives on Sunday. Think about it like this. The Jets are allowing 14.1 yards per catch to opposing wide receivers in 2022 and now have to face Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Those two will make the difference with a few massive downfield gains.

Final Score Prediction: Dolphins: 27 | Jets: 17

Dolphins vs Jets Best Bet

It's important to note just how dominant the Dolphins have been against the Jets in the past. Miami is 8-1 overall and 7-1 against the spread (ATS) over its last nine games against New York. Keep in mind each of Miami's two victories in this divisional matchup last season came by a touchdown as well.

The Jets simply fail to live up to expectations when facing divisional foes. They are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against an AFC East opponent. Wilson has shown some flashes of greatness, but he is still a developmental prospect that is facing a veteran defense on Sunday. The Dolphins roll here.

Bet: Miami Dolphins -3.5 (-104)
