The Dolphins are finishing out the regular season at Hard Rock Stadium. The 17th and final game of the season is on Sunday, January 8, 2023 against the New York Jets. Take a look at what's been going on this week and learn about the upcoming matchup, presented by Smirnoff.
The Dolphins are looking to end the regular season with a winning season and secure a playoff berth. The easiest way for Miami to do that is with a win on Sunday and with the Patriots losing to the Bills. If the Dolphins win, the team would be 9-8, giving the team its third straight winning season. The last time that happened for Miami was from 2001-03. A victory would make this the seventh straight time the Dolphins have defeated the Jets in Hard Rock Stadium.
In 16 games this year, the team is averaging 95.3 rushing yards and 273.6 passing yards per game. Wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle combined have 2,999 receiving yards. The duo only needs one more yard to be the fourth teammates in NFL history to have more than 3,000+ yards in the same season.
Running back Raheem Mostert is leading the team with 820 rushing yards. The Dolphins offense continues to rank second in the NFL in yards per play (6.24). The scoring offense is currently ranked 10TH in the league averaging 24.1 points per game.
Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins has 92 tackles, which leads all NFL defensive linemen. Linebacker Elandon Roberts has 103 tackles along with 4.5 sacks, and linebacker Jerome Baker has 97 tackles and 4.0 sacks. The defense has had a sack in 14 straight games.
