Darrelle Revis returned an interception 100 yards in the first quarter of the Monday-night game, staking the Jets to an early 7-3 lead over the Dolphins. The interception return was the longest in the NFL so far this season.

Revis, the Jets' No. 1 cornerback, was covering Miami WR Brandon Marshall, who appeared to stumble as he neared the goal line while running his pass pattern. Revis stepped in front of Marshall and picked off the pass from Matt Moore, who was starting his first game in place of the injured Chad Henne. Revis then ran up the field, eluding Dolphins tacklers along the way and breaking into the clear near midfield.

It was the second INT of the season for Revis, whom most passers try to avoid because of his reputation as a top cover man.
