Dolphins stun Patriots with 'Miami Miracle' lateral TD for walk-off win

"It starts with me". "Somebody might not get the pitch" The fact that (Coach Gase) called it in this critical situation and put the trust in his players to go out there and make the play, I'm just glad we all took care of our business, and we ended up on the right side of that victory". After all, that's what a "safety" is for - a team's last line of defense on big plays such as Sunday's last-second miracle by the Dolphins.

Tannehill noted that the 69 yards between the line of scrimmage and the end zone was too long for a Hail Mary attempt.

"I've never seen anything like that in my entire life", Amendola said after the win. Luckily, the Dolphins tweeted a clip in case you missed it or, like me, need to watch it 600 more times. They find themselves among the teams who saved their playoff hopes for at least one week.

To make things even more hilarious, a pair of Patriots broadcasters were so stunned by the play that they fell silent after it happened.

But, aided by some clutch blocking downfield, Drake somehow managed to evade a number of Patriots as he changed direction several times before sprinting clear of the likes of Rob Gronkowski to complete one of the most freakish touchdowns of the 2018 season, earning Miami a 34-33 victory.

If you're a Patriots fan, get ready to hear about this for the rest of the season, and possibly the rest of your life.

The defense allowed the Dolphins to rush for 189 yards - 9.0 per carry - and gave up three touchdown passes by Ryan Tannehill.

The band wasn't on the field, but the Miami Dolphins pulled a Stanford-Cal-like miracle on the final play of the game against the New England Patriots.

Down 33-28 after a Stephen Gostkowski field goal, it appeared the Patriots were on their way to clinching a 10th straight AFC East title. He cut toward the middle, found a seam and beat two Patriots to the corner of the end zone - defensive back J.C. Jackson and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was on the field as part of New England's prevent defence.

The Dolphins amazingly remain in the postseason race at 7-6.
