If you want to blame the Dolphins defense for anything so far this season, it's been its inability to create turnovers. The Dolphins have just two takeaways -- Junior Seau's fumble recovery against Tennessee and Patrick Surtain's interception against Pittsburgh.
There again, though, the opponents haven't been forced to throw because of the ineptitude of the Dolphins offense, and it's tougher to force turnovers in the running game.
This Sunday against the Jets, the defense faces its toughest test of the season.
New York has been red hot so far this season, thanks to the running of Curtis Martin and the passing of Chad Pennington, and Zach Thomas and Co. will have their hands full.
It might be too much to ask the way things have been going, but this is one week where the defense will have enough problems stopping the Jets without the Dolphins offense giving away more points.
