MIAMI — The Miami Dolphins and New York Jets rivalry extends as far back as the merger of the American Football League and National Football League, when the two teams were placed in the AFC East conference, assuring they would always meet twice a year. Earlier this season, the teams met in week 6 for Monday Night Football on October 17. The score reflects a Miami Dolphins loss, with only six points on the score board verse the New York Jets 24. The teams will be reigniting their heated match-up on New Years day, with a 1:00 p.m. game time here in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium.
Mercedes-Benz will be in attendance of the exclusive pre-game tailgate, which will begin early in the morning on January 1st. Linking Events is managing the activation and its sister company, Linking Promotions, is responsible for coordinating the promotional specialists that will be actively generating leads for Mercedes-Benz. The activation will be located in the recently opened Joe Robbie Alumni Plaza, a shrine located at Gate C that pays homage to original owner, Robbie, and nine Dolphins legends. This Walk of Fame features the names of greats Don Shula and Dan Marino, among others, on bronze plaques. Mercedes-Benz vehicles will be parked for viewing at this Sun Life Stadium tribute space.
