The Miami Dolphins haven’t won a playoff game since 2000. The team hasn’t even made it to the playoffs since 2008.

However, after a 34-13 rout of the New York Jets on Saturday night, the Dolphins are 9-5 and look primed to make a playoff run as one of the AFC’s two wildcard teams.

That has WR Jarvis Landry, a former LSU standout, excited. He told the Miami Herald that it’s a nice feeling to have control of your own destiny at this point in the season:

“This is an amazing feeling to be in the position that we are in,” Landry said. “We are basically in control of our destiny. I can’t remember in past years, how many Dolphins teams were above .500 at this point in the year. So for us to be where we are, it’s a testament to the hard work we put in.”

Against the Jets, Landry had three catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He’s recorded 82 catches for 1,031 yards and three scores so far this year.

The Dolphins can take another step toward playoff eligibility on Saturday, Dec. 24, when they travel to take on AFC East rival Buffalo.
