THE SERIES
SERIES RECORD: New York leads 49-45-1 (including playoffs)
AT MIAMI: Dolphins lead 25-22-1
At NEW YORK: Jets lead 27-20
LAST MEETING: 2012 at New York; Dolphins 30, Jets 9
HISTORY LESSON: This will mark only the Dolphins’ third road game against the Jets in December since 2000, but the first two sure proved memorable. In 2008, the Dolphins capped their remarkable run to the AFC East title by beating the Jets 24-17 in the season finale. A little less than two years later, the Dolphins beat the Jets 10-6 on a day when the offense struggled but Brandon Fields turned in one of the greatest punting performances of all time with a tremendous 49.6-yard net average.
SERIES TREND: This has been an even series of late, with the teams splitting each of the past three seasons. The road team, however, has had a lot of success, winning five of the last seven meetings. The Dolphins have three of those victories — 30-25 in 2009, 10-6 in 2010, and 30-9 last season. The Dolphins’ 21-point margin of victory in 2012 was their largest against the Jets since 2002 when they beat New York 30-3 in Miami.

SCOUTING REPORT
JETS’ RECORD: 5-6
LAST GAME: Lost at Baltimore, 19-3
OVERVIEW: With a rookie starting at quarterback, a new general manager in place and their star cornerback having been traded, the Jets have fared better so far this season than many analysts had expected. How they got to this point, however, would have been impossible to predict. In becoming the first team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to alternate wins and losses in their first 10 games, the Jets took turns winning close games and getting blown out. All five of the Jets’ victories have been by seven points or less, while all but one of their losses have been by 13 or more. New York will go into Sunday’s game on its first streak of any kind, a two-game losing streak.
KEY NEW FACES: DL Sheldon Richardson (draft-1st round), CB Dee Milliner (draft-1st), QB Geno Smith (draft-2nd), G Willie Colon (Pittsburgh), WR/KR Josh Cribbs (Oakland), QB David Garrard, T Ben Ijalana (Indianapolis), RB Chris Ivory (New Orleans), S Dawan Landry (Jacksonville), S Ed Reed (Houston)
