ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets are "optimistic" Quincy Enunwa (ankle) will play Week 9 against the Dolphins. They feel the same way about Robby Anderson (ankle). It is a bit of a surprise after both were limited to one practice this week, but the Jets are desperate for weapons on offense. Out since Week 6 and on a downward fantasy trajectory even before the injury, Enunwa will be a risky option if he plays.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is at least two weeks from returning. Tannehill is dealing with a capsule injury in his shoulder. He resumed throwing with trainers this week but didn't practice. Brock Osweiler will start Sunday and looks likely to remain the starter through Week 10. The Dolphins don't have a timetable for Tannehill but expect him back this season.
NFL Betting Trends
The Jets are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall.
The Dolphins are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall and are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine divisional games.
Let’s be honest, this is a coin flip game. The Dolphins are laying three points but the home team usually lays 2.5 to 3 points so essentially this is a pick’em on neutral ground. Brock Osweiler surprised by leading the Dolphins to a win over the Bears in his first start but is 0-2 since that point. Last Thursday night, he was his usual erratic self and this Jets defense isn’t great but they do force turnovers. New York is getting heathier at the receiver position and while the Jets’ offensive line is terrible, I still like their running game to get going today and for Gang Green to pull off a small upset.
