The Splash Zone 12/11/19: Jason Sanders Record Breaking Day

New, comments

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Sanders was the only one to score points for the Dolphins against the Jets on Sunday. So if the Dolphins scored 21 points and a field goal is 3 points, that means Sanders kicked for 7 field goals. Oh boy I can do math!

The previous team record for the Dolphins was 6 field goals which was set by Olindo Mare back in 1999. Sanders also tied the NFL record for field goat attempts in a game, which was 8 by Matt Bironas in 2007. Bironas made all 8 of his and that is also another record, one Sanders could have tied if he hadn’t missed once.

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