EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins appeared headed to a hard-fought win and celebrating Jason Sanders' record-setting day. But the fact the kicker was so busy turned out to be a big reason for a 22-21 loss to the New York Jets.

Sanders set the franchise mark with seven field goals, including a 37-yarder that gave Miami a 21-19 lead with 1:33 left. But a controversial penalty call helped New York on its winning drive that was capped by Sam Ficken's 44-yard field goal as time expired.

The Dolphins were 0 for 6 in the red zone.
