DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins are well aware of the obscure new rule that drew a penalty on the Patriots and helped the Jets win in overtime last week.

The Dolphins complained to the NFL that a similar violation by the Ravens wasn't called.

On Sunday, New England's Chris Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate into the Jets' formation. The penalty negated a missed field goal try, and the Jets then made a shorter kick for the victory.

The Dolphins complained to the league that a similar violation wasn't called in Week 5 when Caleb Sturgis missed a 57-yard kick at the end of a 26-23 loss to Baltimore. Coach Joe Philbin said he became aware of the supposed infraction watching a tape of the game.
