DAVIE–The Dolphins are familiar with nondescript end zones thanks to their roommate arrangement with the University of Miami, and they’ll get a bit of that on the road this weekend.

The crew at MetLife Stadium will simply stripe the end zones because of the quick turnaround between Saturday night’s Jets-Dolphins game and the Giants’ home game against the Lions on Sunday at 1 p.m. The expected rain and/or snow in New York this weekend also makes the transition from Jets to Giants more difficult, according to a story in Newsday.

“It’s the same quality as the regular end zones,” MetLife Stadium CEO Ron VanDeVeen told the paper. “But we’ll put those in so we can keep the appropriate maintenance this weekend.”

Hard Rock Stadium gets a similar treatment when the Hurricanes and Dolphins play at home on the same weekend. The grounds crew typically paints “MIAMI” in orange and white block letters that would work for either team.
