Dolphins Beat Patriots in Miami Miracle

Do you believe in miracles?

The Miami Dolphins defeated the New England Patriots 34-33 after a few lateral passes set up a Kenyan Drake game-winning TD run.

The Dolphins were dead in the water. The Patriots had just scored a FG off a passing interference call on Minkah Fitzpatrick. There only 7 seconds on the clock and the Dolphins were down five starting back at their own 25. Tannehill made a quick pass up to Stills at midfield, Stills then lateraled to Parker, who then Lateraled to Drake. Drake then moved inside and then outside, moving up the seams taking it in for the TD as the clock read 0:00.

It was perhaps the greatest miracle play that Dolphins’ fans have seen in the last decade.

Miami got off to a quick start in this game, scoring 3 TDs in the first half. They matched NE beat for beat, but their offensive line was falling apart by halftime. Ryan Tannehill, who threw for 265 yards and 3 TDs was taking some brutal hits. Tannehill had to head into the locker room early before the half to get his ankle checked. Fortunately he was able to finish out the game. The Dolphins offense, despite the lines struggles, was helped from an unforeseen player.

The former Patriot, Brandon Bolden, had 2 carries and took both in for TDs. One was a beautiful 54-yard run right through the NE defense. The Miami defense did their best to hold off Tom Brady and Patriots’ offense. Without their best corner, Xavien Howard, Brady was able to carve up the secondary. Fitzpatrick often looked like a rookie, but he never gave up a big play.

Dolphins are now 7-6 and firmly in the playoff hunt

Miami will definitely celebrate this win for a long time, but they have to get ready for another tall task. They head to Minnesota to face the Vikings in a game that could decide if they make the playoffs or not. The Ravens lost today, which opens the door for the 7-6 Miami Dolphins.
