Final Score:

Well, it's finally that time. The Miami Dolphins are hitting the field in a "meaningful" game for the first time since a 38-7 drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots back on January 2. But, that's all in the past and the potential of this team is all that matters now.

Head Coach Tony Sparano is using this game as a way to evaluate the young players, a chance to get some guys who may normally not see a lot of playing time some experience.

As usual, please don't post any pictures in this thread - they only slow it down. And do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).

If you are looking for a way to watch the game live tonight, and you aren't in the Miami area, you can head over to and check out the preseason package they are currently offering. It's $19.99, and you get streaming access to every preseason game, and on-demand replay of every game as well. It's a pretty good deal, and the feed is outstanding. I used it last night to watch the games other than the ESPN broadcast, and I enjoyed it. Check it out if you are interested. Otherwise, the Dolphins game will be replayed on NFL Network at 1pm EDT Saturday.

This game may not be the prettiest game we will see all year, but it doesn't matter. Because it's DOLPHINS FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!
