NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins defeated the Dallas Cowboys this past weekend to secure a playoff spot and kicker Jason Sanders played a huge part in the victory. Sanders made all five of his field goal attempts with three of them being 50-plus yards and one of them being a career high 57 yards. He also became the first Dolphins kicker to make three 50-plus yard field goals in the same game. It’s been awhile since Sanders had a game like this and it came at the right time.

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