The Miami Dolphins are gearing up for a pivotal AFC East showdown as they hit the road to face their division rivals, the New York Jets, in a crucial Week 12 encounter scheduled for Friday at 3 p.m. ET. Currently holding a 7-3 record, the Dolphins are looking to build on their momentum following a hard-fought 20-13 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Despite their strong season performance, Miami has experienced some inconsistency, marked by a 2-2 record in their last four outings. The Jets, on the other hand, are in a rough patch, reeling from a 32-6 thrashing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.

This loss, part of a three-game skid, has set the stage for an intense battle as they seek to regain their footing. As the teams prepare for Friday's clash, the injury report is a crucial factor in both camps:

Miami Dolphins' Injury Concerns

Key players on Miami's roster are nursing injuries, casting uncertainty over their availability for the Week 12 matchup.

Guard Robert Jones (knee), listed as doubtful. Running back De'Von Achane (knee), offensive tackle Terron Armstead (knee), wide receiver Chase Claypool (knee), guard Lester Cotton (hip), guard Robert Hunt (hamstring), fullback Alex Ingold (foot/ankle), offensive tackle Austin Jackson (oblique), and tight end Durham Smythe (ankle), all questionable.

Notably, Tyreek Hill, Raheem Mostert, and Braxton Berrios have been cleared of injury concerns earlier this week. The Jets also face challenges with six players carrying injury designations: Cornerback Michael Carter II (hamstring) is doubtful.

Offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (ankle/knee), linebacker Sam Eguavoen (hip), offensive tackle Billy Turner (finger), offensive tackle Duane Brown (hip), and tight end Kenny Yeboah (hamstring) are all questionable.

This NFL Black Friday game, an exclusive Amazon Prime streaming event, kicks off at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Amazon's significant investment, estimated between $50 to $100 million, highlights the game's high stakes and appeal. Miami enters as -9.5 point favorites with an over/under set at 40.5. The Jets, starting quarterback Tim Boyle, face a formidable challenge against a resurgent Dolphins defense, bolstered by the likes of Jalen Ramsey.

Following Buffalo's blueprint from last week, Miami is poised to take an early lead, leveraging their offense to secure a convincing road victory and improve their record to 8-3.
