Miami Dolphins: Adams and the Jets’ defense are not to be underestimated ahead of their upcoming game against the NFL’s best offense, the Miami Dolphins.

In Week 12, the New York Jets will face the NFL’s best offense, the Miami Dolphins. The Jets’ defense is up for the challenge and eager to slow down the Dolphins’ multifaceted attack.

Safety of Jets Tony Adams is confident in his defense and believes he can stop the Dolphins’ attack.

The following are comments from safety Tony Adams about the upcoming test that the Jets will attempt to pass:

“We think we’re the best defense in the league, so it’s going to be good on good,” safety Tony Adams told The Washington Post on Wednesday. “They have a great offensive coordinator and are very creative in their approach, their quarterback is playing really well, and they have some great skill-position players as well.” But we also play great defense, and we’re looking forward to the game.”

The Jets’ secondary performs admirably against the NFL’s best offense.
Adams’ belief in his defense is well-founded, at least against the pass. The defense is better than their 4-6 record indicates. They hold quarterbacks to the NFL’s ninth-lowest completion percentage, 62.8 percent. The secondary also prevents big plays by limiting passing attacks to 5.6 yards per attempt, which ranks fourth in the league.

Off the field, the Dolphins thrive with QB Tua Tagovailoa and WR Tyreek Hill. Tagovailoa has averaged the quickest throw time among all quarterbacks nearly the entire season, and he currently sits at a stellar 2.37 seconds. With a league-leading 1,222 REC yards and nine receiving touchdowns, Hill has established himself as the current receiving title favorite thanks to the Dolphins’ offensive line.

The Jets’ defensive line will need to improve.
The Jets’ run defense has ups and downs. While they have only allowed five touchdowns on the ground this season, they have allowed rushers to have feast days piling up yardage. The front seven isn’t doing a good enough job of closing holes, as they’ve given up 1,376 rushing yards, ranking sixth worst in the league.

In terms of his praise for Miami offensive coordinator Frank Smith, the Dolphins employ a spread offense that puts their players in the best position to make plays. The 33rd Team’s Andy Benoit broke down film on how the Dolphins execute simple plays and switch things up by throwing defenses off with creative misdirections.

Adams and the Jets’ defense are not to be underestimated ahead of their upcoming game. In any case, they’ll have to put their money where their mouth is, because the Dolphins will be ready for another day at the office.
