The Miami Dolphins were hoping to get off to a great start on defense agains the New York Jets on Sunday, but that didn't happen. Rather than pound the ball with Chris Ivory to open the game, the Jets decided to take a shot deep on their first offensive play.

With three minutes gone in the first quarter, Ryan Fitzpatrick stepped up and heaved it deep for Brandon Marshall, who was being covered by Brent Grimes. Grimes, who usually plays on the left side, followed Marshall to the right side and was beat immediately.
