*6:37 pm* End of 3rd Quarter, *DOLPHINS 21, JETS 17* Jets made a brief comeback, moving down field to start the third and getting a touchdown and a two point conversion. However, Pennington threw a deep ball to Ted Ginn. Miami scored shortly after. Also, Baltimore has opened up a can on Jacksonville, leading 27-7. Say good night Jets fans, season's over.

*5:58 PM* 3rd Quarter, ok folks, Baltimore leads 24-7. With the Jets season looking bleaker and bleaker,barring a miracle, I'll be back at the end of the 3rd and 4th quarter for wrap ups.

*HALFTIME: DOLPHINS 14, JETS 9* Again, we see the good and the bad of Brett Favre. He's made some pretty throws to Cotchery and Coles, but the 2 interceptions have been killer. It's a close game, but the way the Ravens are playing, it might not matter.

_Time for a quick break, back after the half._

*5:44 pm* Favre incomplete to Keller in the endzone Ball went through Keller's hands. Feely kicks a field goal. *DOLPHINS 14, JETS 9*

*5:42 pm* An illegal formation call pushes the Jets back to 1st and 15 at the 24. Complete to Stuckey to the 10. Jets spike with 8 seconds to go.

*5:40 pm* Jets marching down the field. Favre to Coles for 27 yards. Guess he's ok.

*5:34 pm* You step away for 5 seconds, and Brett Favre throws another pick, only this one is returned for a touchdown. *DOLPHINS 14, JETS 6*

*5:01 pm* Pennington to Fasano for 11 yards. 1st down Miami.

*4:57 pm* On 3rd and 7, flag for encroachment. 5 yard penalty, 3rd and 2 coming up.

*4:54 pm* Some home for Jets fans. Jacksonville just took a 7-3 lead in the 2nd quarter.

*4:53 pm* Pennington all day, throws a 1 yard pass to Ronnie Brown, Brown gets 4 yards after catch. Dolphins will punt.

*4:52 pm* 3rd and 12 for Miami. Jets bliz, but there's a false start against Miami. 3rd and 17 coming up.

*4:24 pm* Great punt coverage by the Jets sticks Miami down at the 4. In comes Chad Pennington. Considering Favre's performance over the last month, I bet he gets an ovation from the crowd.

*4:23 pm* Jones picks up a yard. 3rd and 9 coming up.

*4:17 pm* Kickoff- Jets get the ball to start. Miami won the toss but elected to kick.

*4:10 pm* Good afternoon everyone, I'll here throughout today's Jets-Miami Dolphins game.

For those not in the know, the The Dolphins enter the game needing a win to clinch the AFC East title. The Jets need a win and a Baltimore Ravens loss to clinch a playoff spot. New England's 13-0 victory over the Buffalo Bills earlier today ensures that Jets cannot win the division crown.
