The Jets need a defeat of the Dolphins along with outside help for a third consecutive playoff berth.
In spite of Ryan's Super Bowl guarantee for this season, the New York Jets are only 8-7 heading into Sunday's finale against the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium and need a defeat of the Dolphins along with outside help for a third consecutive playoff berth on his watch.
To secure the AFC's No. 6 slot, a winning New York needs Cincinnati to lose to visiting Baltimore, Tennessee to lose to hosting Houston and either Denver to lose to visiting Kansas City or Oakland to lose to visiting San Diego.
New York beat Miami by a 24-6 count on Oct. 17, but hasn't swept a season series against the Dolphins since 2007.
Game time: Sinday, January 1st, 1:00 pm ET
Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL
Announcers: Greg Gumbel & Dan Dierdorf
