EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Ryan Fitzpatrick threw four touchdown passes, two to Brandon Marshall, and the New York Jets routed the Miami Dolphins 38-20 Sunday to gain some traction in the AFC wild-card race.

Fitzpatrick also connected with Devin Smith, the rookie’s first NFL touchdown, and Eric Decker in New York’s fourth win in the last five meetings with Miami. The Jets (6-5) had lost four of their last five overall.

Miami (4-7) now has dropped four of five and is 3-4 under interim coach Dan Campbell, who took over after Joe Philbin was fired following the Dolphins’ lopsided loss to the Jets in London.

Fitzpatrick and Marshall were far too good for Miami as Fitzpatrick passed for 277 yards and Marshall had nine receptions for 131 yards. Chris Ivory clinched it with a 31-yard TD run on which he broke four tackles.
