Dolphins backup tight end Dion Sims was ruled out Friday with a concussion, while starting tight end Jordan Cameron (groin) is questionable, leaving Jake Stoneburner as the only fully healthy player at the position. The Jets defense is a key factor in whether the team wins or loses. “Nobody is going to give them to us”.
This is a very winnable game for the Jets.
Nevertheless, when the teams kick off in London, the location of the game will likely be a footnote on what will inevitably be remembered as “The Toilet Paper Game”.
The Miami Dolphins are coming from a 41-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.
A seemingly lovable and innocent fictional orphan became the face of agony for Jets and Raiders fans in 1968. I’m not as confident as most, it would appear. Now all they have to do is beat the Miami Dolphins to make their trip to London a smashing success. “I’m not touching that one”.
It will be interesting to see what Ross decides to do during the bye week if in fact the Dolphins are 1-3.
“I think there is a real possibility that could happen”, Marino said. In the early days of the NFL’s London excursions, which began in 2007, teams treated them like missions to Mars. Would head coach Joe Philbin be forced to fire defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle as he was with former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman?
That figure could increase to a $155 million if a London-hosted franchise plays eight regular games a season in the capital, according to a study by Deloitte past year.
The Jets on the other hand are 2-1, after a poor performance last week. Each year more games are played here and the potential to increase that number again next year. He downplayed the commute to American road games as a major deterrent for a team.
“So, the intern informed the operations staff, and the Jets ordered 350 rolls of toilet paper for the hotel and the stadium”.
The Jets have the talent undoubtedly to win this game. “We need British players“.
Players have Friday night in London to themselves. That way the focus stays on the game, and not how soft the Charmin is. Losing is one thing but the Dolphins have a talented front roster that while lacking depth isn’t getting production from the starting group. I expect them to come out and play with urgency, they are hungry for a victory and their season is on the line.
Whenever an National Football League team plays overseas, much effort is made to recreate the routine and home comforts the team are accustomed to. Expect them to try to change that this week.
