December 21, 1991-The Jets and the Dolphins faced off, with the winner taking the final playoff spot in the AFC. The game went back and forth, with the Dolphins taking a 3 point lead with 44 seconds to go. However, the Jets got the ball back, and Raul Allegre(pictured right) kicked the Jets to overtime, and won the game in OT, 23-20, to send the Jets to the playoffs.
November 27, 1994-It was the fake spike game. Is there really anything else to say other than that? I think not.
December 13, 1998-Led by Bill Parcells, the Jets and Dolphins headed into the game tied with a 9-4 record. Ahead 14-10, Chad Cascadden recovered a Dan Marino fumble and returned it for a touchdown, putting the Jets ahead to stay. They won 21-16, and went on to their first division title since the merger.
October 23, 2000-The Monday Night Miracle. The Jets were down 30-7 at the end of the third quarter. Left for dead, the Jets made a furious comeback, which included a touchdown by tackle Jumbo Elliot, and the Jets won the game 40-37 in OT. Here are the highlights, in two parts. First part one:
And now, part two:
December 28, 2008- The Brett Favre led Jets took on the Chad Pennington led Dolphins met on the final day of the season to determine the division. Chad outdueled his replacement, leading the Dolphins to a 24-17 win, exacting a degree of revenge for his unceremonious release during the preseason.
Clearly, this is a rivalry with some history. A history that is renewed on Sunday afternoon at MetLife.
