Monday’s Matchup

DOLPHINS (0-4) AT JETS (2-3)

8:30 p.m., ESPN

Line: Jets by 7

Just in time for the Halloween costume season, Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall vowed to ”play like a monster” on Monday. He plans to make the most of what he thinks will be a brief appearance. ”I don’t know if it’s throwing a football 15 yards in the bleachers, or getting a 15-yarder, or punting the ball and getting thrown out of the game,” he said Thursday. ”I’ll probably get kicked out after the second quarter.” He said the threat of a $50,000 fine would not change his mind. At least Marshall sounds pumped up. Miami may be the flattest, most listless team in the league. The Dolphins are winless without style, their mediocre offense lacks star power and their defense is almost incapable of producing sacks (six) or interceptions (two). Marshall versus His Own Impulses makes a fine undercard for Jets versus Themselves. With the backup quarterback Matt Moore under center for the rest of the season and Marshall talking like a man who hopes to clock out at 10 p.m., the Dolphins are no match for the Jets.
