Greg Van Roten is certain a victory is coming for the winless New York Jets this season. Whether it happens Sunday against the AFC East-rival Miami Dolphins remains to be seen. ''When we win, it will be a relief, for sure,'' the Jets' starting right guard said.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game at the New York Jets, meaning it's likely veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick will make his first start since Oct. 18. Tagovailoa hurt the thumb on his throwing hand in practice Wednesday and was limited in subsequent workouts this week. The rookie's status was downgraded Saturday, and Miami elevated quarterback Reid Sinnett from the practice squad to the active roster to reinforce depth at the position.
