On Sunday, he flew over the top on a Jets blocker to hit Mark Sanchez on a blitz.
He smashed Shonn Greene into the ground after a short pass reception early in the fourth quarter, and the Jets' best running threat — now that LaDainian Tomlinson has hit the physical wall — had one more carry for 2 yards the rest of the evening.
"Channing was all over the place," Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. "It was interesting. Channing gave a big speech to the team last night and got 'em all wound up. I felt both Channing and Karlos (Dansby, who had a team-high nine tackles, plus a sack) ... did a nice job."
Keep in mind, Crowder hadn't played against the Jets in more than 14 months. He missed the second meeting last year with a shoulder injury, then missed the first meeting this year with a groin problem. He was hungry for another shot at old nemesis Rex Ryan.
And it was Crowder, now 2-0 in games against Ryan's Jets, who got the last laugh on a day when New York was held to just 87 yards on the ground (2.8-yard average).
