(NEW YORK) — The Miami Dolphins (8-7) need to win on Sunday against the Jets (7-8) and get some help if they are going to punch their ticket into the playoffs.
Coming off 17-0 loss against Buffalo on Sunday, Miami will hope their success at MetLife Stadium four weeks ago in a 23-3 win over New York carries over into the season finale.
“We have to play our best game of the year. It’s a great way for us to finish the regular season,” Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. “We’ve got a great opportunity.”
This could be the last game that Rex Ryan is on the sideline as the Jets coach.
“We got to go to their place, we understand what’s on the line for their football team, this will be a great opportunity for us,” Ryan said on Tuesday. “We’ll see if we’re better.
“I’m confident our football team is better, but the challenge in front of us is going to be big, it’s a talented football team we’re up against,” he continued.
The Jets are 1-6 on the road this season. Miami is 4-3 at home.
