Rex Ryan and Jets beat Dolphins in finale, 37-24

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - The New York Jets won their season finale Sunday, which might not be enough to save coach Rex Ryan's job.

Embattled Geno Smith had his best game in a rocky season, throwing for a career-high 358 yards and three touchdowns to help Ryan and the Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 37-24.

Smith's performance negated a 97-yard run by Lamar Miller, the longest play from scrimmage in Dolphins history. The Jets rallied from a 10-point third-quarter deficit, and Ryan ordered a fake punt with four minutes left that sealed the victory.

With the Jets sitting out the postseason for the fourth consecutive year, owner Woody Johnson is widely expected to fire Ryan, and perhaps general manager John Idzik.
