Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets: Why Miami Will Prevail in the Meadowlands

It's Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets week once again, meaning it's time for every writer, blogger and sports media personality to give their take on who is going to win and why.

For me it's pretty simple, I'm choosing the Miami Dolphins to win by the score of 13-9. Maybe you can say it's the homer in me making that pick, but as I'm sure you've noticed from me in the past (predicting Tannehill would be a bust, picking the Dolphins to finish 6-10, being overly pessimistic according to many commenters), I'm far from being a homer. I'm choosing the Dolphins because they are the better team.

But I know that I will get the treatment from Jets fans who read this piece, just like the treatment I saw Adam Waksman get in his article explaining why the Jets would win. Honestly I didn't think he was being much of a homer, just that he was presenting the facts, though they were painted with a shade of dark green.

A heavy shade of dark green.

Yes, my reasons will also likely be painted with aqua and orange, but they're very good reasons, both based on statistics (some of them from the football version of sabermetrics), history (both recent and what has happened in seasons' past) and trends I've noticed from both teams.

This won't be a rebuttal to Waksman's piece (which is very well-written, and in my opinion a shade better than what I've produced from a content standpoint), but rather me presenting not only my prediction and reasons why, but also one guarantee: The team that wins this game will go to the playoffs this season.

How's that for ratcheting up the pressure on the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets going into Dolphins vs. Jets week? Now let's take a look at why the Dolphins will leave New Jersey with a victory.
