As I am typing this, it has been one hour since the end of the Dolphins miracle win over the Patriots. I should have kept count but I’m pretty sure I’ve watched the final play at least 1000 times and I’m sure I will add another 1000 by the end of the night. This was also a revenge game for Danny Amendola and let’s not forget about Brandon Bolden. Bolden is a special teams ace but proceeded to run all over his former team on offense today with two touchdowns. Ryan Tannehill injured his ankle during the game after it was stepped on by Ja’Wuan James right before the end of the first half. Tannehill was able to finish the game and put up three touchdowns on the Patriots defense. The Dolphins provided the play of the year and may have just reignited this fan base for the final stretch of the season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
