The Miami Dolphins winning the 2009 Super Bowl?  If you had suggested this early on in the season when they had odds the would pay $125,000 for every $100 bet, people probably would have asked what you were smoking.  It was an improbable win against the New York Jets that not only allowed the Dolphins to enter the Playoffs but also to win the 2008 AFC East.  Their odds of doing such were well into the double digits as well.

It was truly an amazing run for a team that last year only won a single game (so maybe there is still hope for the Detroit Lions).

The Dolphins odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl were at +2450 heading into Sunday's game against the Jets and we could expect those odds to be slashed come Monday.

"You will be getting over $1000 for every $100 bet if the Dolphins were to win the 2009 Super Bowl and considering how well they are playing, this is a good bet on a team that the oddsmakers do not feel will get very far into the Playoffs," expressed Don Shapiro, sports writer for the website.

Indeed, the Dolphins are among the hottest teams in the league right now, having won 9 of their last 10 games. 

Chad Pennington was in the opposing locker room at the stadium where he spent the first eight years of his career, a big smile peeking out from a gray Miami Dolphins "Division Champions" cap.

"It's always a sweet feeling to be a champion," the Dolphins quarterback said after beating the New York Jets 24-17 on Sunday. "That's what we are: AFC East champions. It's a great feeling. This organization has been unbelievable. They accepted me from the get-go. This has been an unbelievable ride."

Pennington, cut in the offseason by the Jets to make room for an aging Brett Favre, threw two touchdown passes against his former team and helped the Dolphins (11-5) complete a remarkable turnaround.

"It's not a revenge factor," Pennington said. "This week, being the 17th week, it was strictly focused on winning the championship, knowing that we controlled our own destiny. It just so happened that it had to come through New York. That's the only way fate would have it."

A year after going 1-15, the Dolphins joined the 1999 Indianapolis Colts as the only teams in NFL history to make 10-game improvements. Miami, under first-year coach Tony Sparano, has won five straight and nine of 10 in making the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons and winning its first AFC East title since 2000.

"I don't think words can describe it," running back Ronnie Brown said. "Earlier in the season, we could only imagine being in this situation."

The Dolphins will host Baltimore in the first round of the AFC playoffs on Jan. 3 or 4
