Jarvis Landry and the Miami Dolphins are tired of not receiving the respect they’ve proven is deserved.
For the second straight week, Miami crawled back from a second half deficit to pull out a comeback victory.
“Like I said, man, they have to stop doubting us,” Landry said on the field after the game. “This team, man, we’ve been through everything this year. We’ve been through hurricanes, we’ve been through 16,000 miles, man, and to be down two weeks in a row, and do it like this, man. I can’t be proud enough of this whole organization, and my teammates, and the city of Miami.”
Landry proved once again on Sunday to be the heartbeat of Miami’s hot streak. The Dolphins’ leading receiver had back-to-back remarkable receptions on the game-tying touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter. First, Landry caught a pass down the middle and hurdled a Jets defender to get momentum going. He followed that up with a 29-yard leaping grab with 7:56 left to play to set up the game-tying score.
Landry also caught a touchdown pass from Cutler early in the first quarter. The 24-year-old finished with seven receptions for 93 yards. He has now racked up 45 receptions this season, which ties for second in the NFL. He’s also score three touchdowns and gained 365 yards receiving.
Grab some of Jarvis gear to have that Miami pride every game.
Down 14 points in the fourth quarter, and without starting quarterback Jay Cutler, who broke multiple ribs on Sunday, the Dolphins pulled off a 31-28 come-from-behind victory over division rival New York Jets behind the arm of Matt Moore.
The Dolphins improved to 4-2 on the season, and have won three straight, including victories over the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons and a very good Titans team.
“Us, man. It’s about us,” Landry said. “It’s about brotherhood. We bleed, we sweat together. We cry together. And we’ve always got each other’s back. That’s what we do every time we take the field. Practice. Sunday to Sunday. That’s what we do. We stick together, man.”
Landry finished his postgame interview by telling the audience, “Tell them to stop doubting us. Tell them to stop doubting us.”
