The Miami Dolphins defense was one of the main reasons they improved to 4-7 on Sunday against the New York Jets, their third win in a row.

They held the Jets to just 17 points despite some strong efforts from New York’s weapons. Rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore had the biggest day for their offense, totaling 141 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions including a 62-yard slant against Byron Jones.

After the game, Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard spoke on Moore’s talent.

“He can be special in this league,” Howard said in his postgame press conference. “He’s a smaller guy, quick guy. He made some tough catches out there. I respect his game.”

Moore started off the season slowly, but he’s scored four touchdowns in the last three weeks. Getting that type of recognition from one of the best cornerbacks in the league has to mean something. They’ll see each other again in a few weeks, so Howard might be on him more often.
