This is Miami’s third time traveling to London for a game. They were the first team to play a game in Wembley Stadium back in 2007 with loss to the New York Giants. Then, in 2014, they won against the Oakland Raiders. Coming back one year later, Miami will be looking for another victory, this time against the Jets. This is also the first time the Jets will be traveling to London to play. Hopefully they can make their mark across the pond and get a win.

A controversial man who has left an imprint on both teams is Mike Tannenbaum. He became the Jets GM in 2006, and stayed with the team until the end of 2012. Although his lost his touch for drafting during the end of his time with the Jets, he is responsible for acquiring these current Jets among others: Nick Mangold, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, David Harris, and Muhammad Wilkerson. Now, with the Miami Dolphins, he is the Executive Vice President of Football Operations. He made Ndamukong Suh the highest-paid defensive player ever.

Since the Jets play the Dolphins two times each year, they have faced most of Miami's players before, but there are some new faces to the rivalry, such as Suh and Greg Jennings. The only former Jet on the Miami roster is C.J. Mosley. He was on the Jets from 2006-2008. He rarely started, but he saw playing time as a rotational defensive lineman. He plays a similar role in his first year with the Dolphins.
