The capacity crowd included Miami Heat newcomer James, who wore a Florida Marlins cap. Fans roared when he was shown on the video scoreboard, while they booed Taylor, a former fan favorite playing against the Dolphins for the first time after 12 seasons with Miami.
Taylor drew jeers when he represented his team for the coin toss, and again when he sacked Henne in the first period. At the end of the game, Jets coach Rex Ryan helped soak Taylor by dumping a sideline bucket on him.
The Dolphins gave up only two touchdowns in their first two games, but the Jets took the opening possession and marched 72 yards for a TD. Sanchez converted two third downs with completions, then hit Dustin Keller with a 24-yard score.
Sanchez hit Keller with a 12-yard touchdown pass to cap a 90-yard drive, putting the Jets ahead 14-0.
The early lead helped negate the Dolphins' ground game. Henne threw for a career-high 363 yards, completing 26 of 44 passes, but Ronnie Brown ran for only 54 yards, and Ricky Williams was held to 28.
