Patterson couldn't stay on the field and barely played when he was active (although he was damn productive when he actually played). Nolan Carroll and Jimmy Wilson have stepped up and played very well. Patterson's loss isn't that big a deal.
You’re just sour-grapes over your Cowboys, and you know it.
3 things the Jets have going for them for their 2nd go-around with Miami..
#1) Revenge Factor: In most cases the team that loses the first game to their divisional opponent, wins the second game. I actually think the pressure may get to Miami more than the Jets, in the sense of what you just said. (“We can’t blow this!”)
#2) The game’s in Miami. YES.. I just said that! --here’s why: Geno Smith is NOT a cold weather quarterback.. and his stats throughout the season prove it. During the BaltimoreMiamiBuffalo weeks, the wind was kicking, and temp. was between 30° & 35°. He played like absolute sh!t through 3 straight weeks. (and despite how competent Geno looked against Oakland, the majority of his better plays came early in the game, when the temperature was 41°) The moment the game got to the 3rd quarter, and the temperature dipped into the 30’s, Geno turned off.. and Oakland came within striking distance. It’s a blessing in disguise that Week 17 is being played in FL.
DP is the starting CB for the Dolphins, and has played exceptionally well all season. Miami’s 5-1 with Patterson in the lineup, and 2-5 without him. He leads the team in interceptions, and is second behind Grimes in broken-up passes.
