Dolphins closing in on turnover record

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Dolphins are going for more than just a playoff spot in this game: They have the chance to break an NFL record for fewest turnovers in a 16-game regular season. (The Chiefs had just 12 turnovers during the nine-game 1982 season.)

After Chad Pennington‘s fumble with 11 minutes left in the second quarter against the Jets, the Dolphins have 13 turnovers. If they don’t have another, they’ll break the record held by the 1990 Giants, who had 14. Incidentally, or coincidentally, that team was coached by Bill Parcells. That team went on to win the Super Bowl.

By the way, Parcells isn’t here today. He hasn’t traveled with the Dolphins all season.
