Here's a look at how every unit on the Dolphins performed in the 23-21 victory over the New York Jets.

QUARTERBACK — How ironic that Jay Fiedler played a very good game in what might have been his last start for the Dolphins. Fiedler passed for a career-high 328 yards and one touchdown, and should have had another to Randy McMichael but it instead turned into an interception when McMichael bobbled the pass. Fiedler was accurate for the most part, particularly when passing to Chris Chambers. It probably won't be enough to save his starting job, but it was a nice way to go out. Grade: B+

RUNNING BACKS — Ricky Williams played despite shoulder problems and fought hard for his 73 yards on the ground, which included a nifty 16-yard touchdown. His biggest play, however, came on a screen pass to the right when he totally changed direction and wound up gaining 59 yards down the left sideline. Travis Minor carried the ball once and was stopped for no gain near the goal line. Rob Konrad was back in the lineup but didn't touch the ball. Grade: B-

RECEIVERS — Chris Chambers closed the season the way he began it, with a huge day. Chambers made a couple of nice catches among his nine and also scored a touchdown. Derrius Thompson also caught three passes, all in the first half. The one major negative here was McMichael's drop in the end zone, which came a few plays after McMichael was flagged for a false start. But McMichael also had three catches. Grade: C+

OFFENSIVE LINE — The offensive line didn't have a dominating performance against the Jets, but it was workmanlike. The Dolphins did't allow that much pressure on Fiedler, although he was sacked twice. The biggest negative was a 15-yard roughness penalty on Todd Perry that turned a first-and-10 from the Jets 11-yard line to a first-and-25 from the 26. Grade: C

DEFENSIVE LINE — The Dolphins finished the season with a four-sack effort against the Jets, with Jason Taylor, Adewale Ogunleye, Jeff Zgonina and David Bowens getting one each. The run defense was solid, although not as good as it has been all season. Curtis Martin rushed for 92 yards, although he averaged less than 4 yards per carry. Grade: B-

LINEBACKERS — Three linebackers (Zach Thomas, Junior Seau, Morlon Greenwood) finished with the three-most tackles against the Jets, but there weren't many big plays. In addition, Seau took a stupid offside penalty when he jumped offside. Of the three, Greenwood was the one who had the best day. Grade: C

DEFENSIVE BACKS — The Dolphins defense had their problems with crossing patterns all day as Chad Pennington completed 22 of 28 passes and compiled a 111.5 QB rating. Sam Madison was beaten deep early on a long pass to Curtis Conway and Patrick Surtain was called for holding on a two-point conversion attempt. It was not a great day for the secondary. Brock Marion broke up a pass, while Sammy Knight was pretty quiet. There were a couple of missed tackles in the secondary, most notably by Terrell Buckley. Grade: C

SPECIAL TEAMS — A lot of things happened on special teams against the Jets, some good and some bad. Among the good was Olindo Mare's three field goals, including his game-winning 22-yarder in the final seconds; and Travis Minor's season-long 49-yard kickoff return. The bad included Mare missing a long field goal attempt, Jeff Grau snapping the ball over the head of punter Matt Turk to give the Jets a safety; and Turk mis-hitting the ensuing free kick.
