Miami on pace to tie best turnaround in NFL history

At this time last year, the Dolphins were thrilled to have won one game. Now they are shooting for a much grander goal. The Dolphins are trying to join the 1999 Indianapolis Colts as the teams with the single largest improvements from one season to the next.

If Miami can win its final two games of the season at Kansas City and at New York against the Jets, then the Dolphins will have won 10 more games than last season — the difference in games the Colts won from 1998 to 1999.

Here’s a look at the teams that had the single biggest improvements in NFL history:

Year Team Record Previous Increase
1999 Colts 13-3 3-13 +10
1929 Giants 13-1-1 4-7-2 +9
1963 Raiders 10-4 1-13 +9
1999 Rams 13-3 4-12 +9
2004 Steelers 15-1 6-10 +9
*2008 Dolphins 9-5 1-15 +8

* Through Week 15
