The Miami Dolphins are 18-14 all-time in games following a bye. The Dolphins have won four straight against the Jets and nine of the last 11 meetings overall in the series, including five in a row at home. Miami took the first meeting this season at MetLife Stadium, 24-17, in Week 11.
During the current five game winning streak, the Miami Dolphins haven't trailed once by more than three points. When Head Coach Brian Flores was asked about how that has helped them play the style of offense they want to play, Coach Flores said, "The goal is always to play from ahead. I think that's what we try to do really all year. The focus isn't on the last five weeks, it's on today. That's where I'm at. It's on the Jets. I think they played us well the last time we played them. I think they've got some talented players."
