Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry made a pretty bold prediction Wednesday when he claimed that the Dolphins would knock off the New England Patriots not once, but twice in the 2017 season.
Now that’s bold for a few reasons.
First, the Dolphins haven’t beaten the Patriots twice in a season since 2000. Secondly, the Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions and arguably have gotten better during the offseason.
So, let’s just say the chances of Landry’s prediction coming true aren’t exactly high.
And FOX Sports 1’s Shannon Sharpe went on Thursday’s edition of “Undisputed” to delivered a dose of reality to the talented receiver.
Sharpe makes a great point about the Patriots’ level of dominance. Couple that with the fact that the Dolphins only have beaten the Patriots once in their last five meetings, and Landry looks like he might be swallowing a whole lot of crow come fall.
