Rex Ryan needs several things to happen for his team to make the playoffs. A New York Jets win over the Miami Dolphins is priority number one for the Jets in Week 17. It reveals much about how the Jets' season has gone that they enter their final game of the season as one-point underdogs.
For Miami, a win, and a Bills loss, would keep them out of the cellar and end the season on a high note after a rocky start. They are one-point favorites hosting the Jets this weekend. For the season, Miami is 8-7 against the spread. The Jets have a 6-9 record against the spread this year.
The over/under on this game is a meager 41 points. A struggling Jets offense has failed to top the 20-point threshold in its last two games. Picking games in Week 17 is tough enough, and this one is anybody's guess as you never know which version of these two teams will take the field.
