The Buffalo Bills have this playoff drought. Maybe you're aware.
But you may be surprised to learn the Miami Dolphins have been mired in similar mediocrity. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald sent out this tweet listing Miami's win-loss records starting in 2004, and the numbers aren't much different than Buffalo's.
For kids that started first grade in 2004 and will be college juniors in 2018:
Not the way to build a fan base.

That equates to an overall record of 96-127. Over that same span, the Bills are 95-128.
The main, most important difference between the struggles the Dolphins and Bills have endured over the past decade plus is that Miami made the postseason twice (in 2008 and 2016).
On both of those occasions, they lost in the first round of the playoffs.
Ironically, if the Bills beat the Dolphins on Sunday, the clubs will have identical overall records since the start of the 2004 campaign and each franchise will have three seasons with a winning record in that time frame.
