Miami Dolphins and New York Jets Preview

Dolphins vs. Jets Preview
SERIES RECORD: Miami trails in the all-time series with New York, 47-50-1
LAST MEETING: In East Rutherford on Dec. 1, 2014; Miami 16, New York 13

It was almost exactly one year ago, on December 29, 2013, when the New York Jets beat the Dolphins 20-7 on their home field, not only embarrassing the Fins in front of their fan base, but also eliminating Miami from playoff contention.

And despite the fact that they only had two wins in the 2014 season when the two teams faced for the first time this year just a few weeks ago, the Jets almost did it again. On Monday night Football, the Fins made a late-game charge of their own, toppling the New York Jets, 16-13, in East Rutherford, NJ. Miami scored 10 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, including Caleb Sturgis’ go-ahead field goal with 1:57 remaining, that proved to be just enough to pull away with the then-crucial victory.

Of course, fast forward three weeks, and Miami is officially out of the playoff chase, so New York can’t play spoiler on Miami’s home turf like they did last year. But even though Miami announced after Sunday’s win vs. Minnesota that Head Coach Joe Philbin would be retained next season, the squad is still hoping to avenge the season-ending loss of 2013 with a season-ending win in 2014.

While the Fins are keeping their head coach intact this offseason (the staff under him are still in question, however), the Jets haven’t made a public statement one way or another about their head man Rex Ryan. In fact, quarterback Geno Smith was quoted in the media Monday as saying that “change could be good” – not exactly the ringing endorsement every head coach wants to hear from their field commander.

Miami is coming off its emotional, last-minute win Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, in which they blocked a punt and won on a safety with 41 seconds on the clock, while the Jets experienced a near-victory against the New England Patriots before falling 17-16 at home.

Note: Cornerback Brent Grimes and defensive end Cameron Wake were named as Pro Bowlers this week. Grimes will be playing in the All-Star game for the second consecutive and third overall time, while Wake will be making his third trip to the Pro Bowl, his third time as a defensive end (his fourth trip was as a linebacker).
