It took a long trip to get it done, crossing over five time zones, but the New York Jets got it done. The Jets were clearly the more prepared team, getting out to a big lead early, and holding on to take down the Miami Dolphins 27-14.

That shiny first date newness of Week 1 has worn off and it's time to settle in for the long grind of the season. But here's the thing, it's still too early to really know what kind of talent these teams have.
