Dolphins WR Predicts Sweep Over Patriots in 2017

The Dolphins might be a team on the rise, but it sounds like one of their player’s heads might be growing a little quicker than it should be.

While Miami’s trip to the postseason last year ended in an embarrassing loss, that hasn’t stopped one player from already dropping some bulletin board material for the Patriots locker room.

Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry told MMQB’s Peter King that he expects Miami to sweep New England in 2017, which is certainly a bold statement for a team that has yet to put a consistent performance together against them.

“If you’re a competitor, that’s the way you should feel, and I don’t mind saying it,” Landry told King via MMQB.com. “It’s time for a change. I have all the respect in the world for the Patriots, and I respect Tom Brady tremendously. But they’re not our big brother anymore.”


The Dolphins haven’t swept the Patriots since 2000.

Landry has had success against New England, having had some solid outings over the last two seasons in each of their last four meetings.

2015 Week 7: 6 receptions, 71yds
2015 Week 16: 6 receptions, 72yds
2016 Week 2: 10 receptions, 135yds
2016 Week 16: 9 receptions, 76yds 1TD

However, he’s just one player and it will take other guys to step up around him in order to be able to overtake New England.

Should Miami pull off Landry’s claim, it would be the first time the Dolphins swept New England since all the way back in 2000.  They also swept the Patriots in 1999, but since Tom Brady took over, Miami has had a tough run against them.  New England has swept the series six times, having done so in 2003, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2016.  The Patriots also put together quite a winning streak against them, going 7-0 at one point from 10/4/2010 – 10/27/2013.

Needless to say, Landry might want to pump the brakes a bit before he writes a check his teammates might not be able to help him cash.
