    In 2 games we outscored the bills by a combined total of 2 points. Against them we were 1-1. Lets not act like we sweep them every year or something, we haven't swept the bills for the last 2 or 3 years.

    The 4th game, both teams were terrible. The Jets had twice as many 1st downs, twice as many yards, and fewer turnovers, but couldn't make the key plays. Your punter won the game for you by continually booming punt after punt from deep in your own territory and not allowing the Jets to get good field position. Also, there was this:

    I know, drops happen, but that one was one of the worst I can remember.
    So what you are saying is that your offense isn't that good either when the opposing team defends the run well.

    Ryan's team seems to perform pretty well in the playoffs, but struggles against the 7-9 Dolphins? What gives?

    Why say that Rex's only win came down to the wire when all the games that were played came down to the wire between the Jets and Dolphins? They had bad luck vs the Dolphins though, like Ted Ginn actually catching a long TD to beat them one time, then the next time Ginn running back 2 KR for TDs and then a defensive TD return. Then the next loss Holmes dropping an easy TD. But I always expect a close game when the Jets/Dolphins play each other.

    Close game, but the Dolphins win.

    Sparano owns Ryan, and the Jets for that matter. Sparano is 3-1 against Ryan and 4-2 against the Jets.

    Sparano doesn't really own Ryan... Rex is a much better football coach than Sparano is, just that Sparano has gotten some lucky breaks in these close games to win. If he actually had brilliant game plans and out coaches Rex, then he owns him.

    The Dolphins are not a team that is going to get blown out much because they play conservative not to lose style, so they keep turnovers down and don't beat themselves much. And now the Dolphins defense is pretty good.

    The Jets/Dolphins will probably split again this season between the 2 games.
