Welcome to Marino Mondays!
Over the next few months, I’m going to be searching the internet looking for some of the GOAT’s best performances throughout his Hall of Fame career. And although the end result might not always be a Miami Dolphins’ victory, I assure you Marino will look damn good throwing the football. These videos will showcase Marino’s rocket arm. They will show off his ability to move effortlessly around in the pocket. You will have a chance to see his lightning quick release and pinpoint accuracy. Most of all, you will get to relive your childhood, and what made most of us fall in love with the Miami Dolphins.
Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there. I hope it was a special day. Unfortunately, this is going to be a quick “Marino Monday” installment, because my weekend was spent working and with my family.
Without further ado, the fourth installment in the Marino Monday series.
Dan Marino leads the Dolphins to victory over the Buffalo Bills, breaking Johnny Unitas’ all-time passing record
September 26th, 1993
Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins traveled to upstate New York to take on their division rival, the Buffalo Bills. These two teams usually have competitive matchups, but not this time. Marino and the Dolphins started out strong, and didn’t look back from there. The Dolphins controlled the pace of the game and never gave Buffalo a chance to get back in. During this game, Marino eclipsed Unitas’ all-time passing record with a completion to Irving Fryar late in the third quarter. Marino finished the game 20/32 for 282 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He also rushed for a four-yard touchdown.
Dan Marino is so damn accurate, and can throw a football like no one else.
