With the New England Patriots winning earlier this afternoon, the Dolphins needed the victory to claim the AFC East title with an 11-5 record. They went 1-15 last year.
- No team ever has made the playoffs after a one-win campaign.
- No team ever has won double-digit games after a one-win campaign.
- Only the 1999 Indianapolis Colts improved their record by 10 victories over the previous season, so the Dolphins tied that record, too.
Favre, in what could be his final game, completed 19 of 39 attempts for 227 yards and one touchdown, but threw three interceptions.
Phillip Merling returned Favre's second interception 25 yards for a touchdown. The third came on the Dolphins 25-yard line and the Jets down by seven points.
