"Teddy ran a great route and they gave us the coverage we wanted," Henne said.
Williams set up a field goal when he gained 59 yards on a reception, with all the yards coming after the catch. He finished with 68 yards rushing on 11 carries, and Brown ran for 74 yards in 21 attempts.
The Dolphins totaled 413 yards, converting nine of 14 third-down chances and controlling the ball for 33 1/2 minutes.
"They played us hard but I think our guys had the determination inside," Henne said.
Jets rookie Mark Sanchez was 12 of 24 for 172 yards and benefited immediately from the addition of Edwards, who caught a 3-yard scoring pass to cap his first series with the Jets.
Edwards made a leaping 34-yard catch on third-and-21 to put the ball at the 1, setting up Thomas Jones' score on the next play for a 20-17 lead.
Edwards' biggest play didn't involve a reception. When Sanchez tried to hit him deep in the fourth quarter, Will Allen was called for pass interference, although video replays showed virtually no contact.
The 49-yard penalty gave the Jets the ball at the 3, and Jones scored on the next play for a 27-24 lead with 5:12 left. The Dolphins answered with their winning drive.
