Thanks to the contributions of two former Dolphins, Jordan Phillips and Charles Clay, the Dolphins somehow pulled out a last minute victory. Phillips committed a taunting penalty which extended the one Dolphins drive while Clay dropped the game winning touchdown as the tight end was wide open with no one around him. Ryan Tannehill had a solid game, throwing for 3 touchdowns but continues to get beatup as the interior offensive line is a hot mess. A win is a win though and the Dolphins are back in the wildcard hunt. On a side note, get Xavien Howard to the Pro-Bowl.

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