Just found this out BTW.

3. Money in the bank: Dolphins will lose every time the week after playing the Jets.

Today’s stat of the day: With Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Colts, the Dolphins have now lost their last 13 games the week following a Jets game. The last time they won a game the week after playing the Jets was a win over the Titans in December 2005.

Maybe this is just a weird, statistical quirk. Or maybe it’s a sign that the Dolphins get really geared up for their division rivals, and then suffer an emotional letdown the next week. Considering it’s happened the last thirteen times makes it hard to believe this is just a random occurrence. And the streak doesn’t include this year’s Week 1 loss to Houston, which technically was the next game after last year’s Week 17 game against the Jets.

The good news: The Dolphins are done playing the Jets this year.


Wow...that's just mind blowing :-o :shock: :nono:

I think it was a little of a trap game. I was worried about this game after the huge emotional win on the raod against the Jets. you could see this setting up as such.

Thanks. I feel a bit embarrassed about not knowing that until just now seeing as I'm supposed to be the king of knowing stuff like that :oops:

Definitely. I think that was a big factor.

Could be, but this team is in NO position to have "trap games", nor should they overlook ANY team.

It is an emotioal game. Lou Hotlz used to tell a story about one of his teams going to be playing the #1 team. He gave everyone of them game balls and told them to write on them what they were going to do to help win the game. He also told them to dedicate that ball to someone special. He collected the balls and then told his team he was sending that ball to the person it was dedicated to.

They ended up beating the #1 team. A team they had no chance on paper of beating. I may have butchered that story but you get the drift. Now you couldn't do that every game but at the right time a team can rise to the occasion. And all the talking the Jets did was like sending the dedication ball out IMO. Adn then after there is a let down.

Yeah, between the trash talk and the arch-rival factors, that was definitely a game where the Phins turned their volume knobs to 11. It's just not possible to maintain that level of emotion and intensity every week, especially on a team that, frankly, can't rely on talent to overcome any lapse in intensity.

I also think the extra time to prepare for the Jets game gave the Phins time to find and exploit weaknesses, especially on special teams. We don't have that luxury every game, of course.

This stat is only valid for winning teams. When you are a losing team the odds are always in favor of losing the next game.
