NFL Week 18 schedule
When are Dolphins-Jets playing this week?
The Dolphins-Jets game kicks off in Miami at 1 p.m. ET. The game will air on FOX.
NFL playoff implications
This was looking like a huge matchup for both teams, but the Jets were eliminated from playoff contention this past week when they lost to the Seahawks. The Dolphins lost to the Patriots last week to drop to 8-8, and now need help to make the playoffs. They are tied with the Patriots, but lose the division record tiebreaker.
Miami needs to win this game and also have the Bills beat the Patriots. That game will also kick off at 1 p.m. and the Bills are a 7.5-point favorite.
