Matchup History

These two franchises have played some historic games against each other including the “Monday Night Miracle,” the “Fake Spike” and the “Mud Bowl.” There is no love lost between these two franchises, and this would not be the first time in this series that one team has the chance to play spoiler to another.

The first time these two franchises handled business on the field this season the Dolphins came away with a 27-23 victory behind a strong performance by Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake‘s 96 yard kickoff return late in the fourth quarter. New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick only threw for 194 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. There is a new head man under center this time around, as the Dolphins will get their first extended look at Bryce Petty (he appeared briefly in the previous matchup).

This Saturday will be the 102nd edition of the Miami Dolphins versus the New York Jets with the Jets holding a 53-47-1 edge in the series. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase is 1-0 against the Jets while Todd Bowles is 2-1 against the Dolphins.

Sports have always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Born in Queens, New York, I took to the Mets and the Jets at a young age, and actually have a video of myself reciting the 1986 Mets 25-man roster at age 3. Covering New York Sports is a dream come true. After attending the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I was able to fully realise my potential of turning my liking for sports into a career that I love.
