Don't think for a second Dolphins players don't remember the painful lesson they learned that day.
Yes, the Jets have had major injury problems this year and it's a team the Dolphins clearly should beat. But the Dolphins aren't going to beat them by just showing up.
The truth is, the Jets actually have been playing decent defense for the most part.
The Dolphins, after all, could only muster seven points against the Jets in the first meeting and it's pretty much the same defensive personnel they'll be facing on Sunday.
The biggest problem in the first meeting, and therefore the biggest priority in this one, is keeping defensive end John Abraham away from Frerotte.
Abraham may have had only one sack back on Sept. 18, but he was a disruptive force throughout the game. Damion McIntosh couldn't handle Abraham, and that's why the Dolphins switched to Stockar McDougle at left tackle that day.
What the Dolphins need to do is simple: Give McIntosh help in dealing with Abraham.
The Jets simply don't have the personnel anymore to be able to generate a lot of offense, and the biggest reason they were able to put up 26 points against Oakland last Sunday was two fumbles caused by -- who else? -- Abraham.
So, again, at the risk of repeating ourselves, make sure to get him blocked.
As mentioned, the Jets offense isn't very scary right now because as an NFL quarterback, Brooks Bollinger is a very good college quarterback.
And new starting running back Cedric Houston is no Curtis Martin.
So the Dolphins should be able to handle the Jets and snap yet another losing streak against the guys from New York (this one at three).
But they better make sure they come ready to play instead of basking in the aftermath of a three-game winning streak.
Because it would be a shame to see the streak stop at three when it really should get to four.
