Chris Ivory ran for a career-high 166 yards and Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 218, one touchdown and one interception to lead the Jets over the Miami Dolphins 27-14 Sunday at Wembley Stadium in the first division game played in London.
Miami’s Ndamukong Suh, the highest-paid defensive player in league history, had three tackles and no sacks. His first didn’t come until the third quarter.
Both teams have byes next week, as usual for teams playing in London. Miami (1-3) will face lots of questions about its poor performances thus far.
Fitzpatrick threw for 172 yards in the first half, including a 58-yard completion to Brandon Marshall on the first play. Marshall had 107 yards receiving by halftime and finished with 128 for the Jets (3-1).
The Jets ended up with 207 yards rushing, including 34 from Fitzpatrick, and 425 total yards on offense. Ivory’s 166 yards were the most by a Jet since Thomas Jones ran for 210 in 2009.
