Rookie Skylar Thompson will get the start under center. In spot action this year he completed 54.1% of his passes for 5.2 yards per attempt. Thompson threw for one touchdown and three interceptions. Back to back road games for the Jets traveling to and from Seattle a week ago. They faced the disappointment of playoff elimination this week and have a trip to Miami. Don’t see this as a motivating trip down south against a team with a decent shot at making the playoffs and at home. High volume passing by Flacco could lead to turnovers since the veteran lack’s mobility. Play Miami -3.
