Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets History

Both the Jets and the Dolphins were established in the 1960s in the American Football League. When the AFL merged with the NFL in 1970, both franchises joined the AFC East and they’ve played twice a year since then. The Jets won the first eight games in a row against Miami from 1966–1969 by an average margin of 15.9 points per game.

During the ’70s, the Dolphins went on a dominant run behind hall of fame running backs Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick, and quarterback Bob Griese. From 1971 through 1973, the Dolphins won three straight Super Bowl championships and won five out of six games against the Jets. Overall, Miami won 14 out of 20 games against New York during the decade.

From 1980 through 2009, the series remained extremely close, with the Dolphins winning 28 games to the Jets 32 wins (with one tie). Since 2020, Miami has won five out of the last six games against the Jets behind their balanced offensive attack.

Heading into the 2023 season, the Jets acquired future hall-of-fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, making the team one of the favorites to win the AFC East.

Where Do the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins Play?

The New York Jets have called MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, their home since 2010. The Jets share MetLife with the New York Giants, as only one of two stadiums to be shared by multiple NFL franchises (the other is SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles). MetLife Stadium has a maximum capacity of 82,500 and cost roughly $1.6 billion to construct.

Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, outside of the heart of Miami, has been the home of the Dolphins since 1987. The stadium has a record attendance of 80,120 for the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. Outside of the NFL, Hard Rock Stadium also hosts the annual Orange Bowl and Formula 1’s Miami Grand Prix. It has also been tabbed as one of the stadiums to host matches during the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
