Dolphins beat Patriots on last-second lateral fiesta, touchdown

Dolphins beat Patriots on last-second lateral fiesta, touchdown

On Sunday, the New England Patriots and their fans were prepared to mark their game against the Miami Dolphins in the W column, but the Miami's Ryan Tannehil, Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, and Kenyan Drake had other plans.

"It feels good to be on the winning side of it", Drake said.

"Coach Belichick outsmarted himself having Rob Gronkowski on the field for a 70-yard Hail Mary and keeping his best defensive player on the sidelines, Devin McCourty", former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said on NBC's "Sunday Night Football". He returned to start the second half, and his 23-yard touchdown pass to Brice Butler put the Dolphins ahead 28-27 late in the third quarter.

"It was a little too far to get to the end zone, but certainly a deep pass in that situation is a possibility". One thing that's certain is that the playoff outlook became at least a bit more clear following a busy day of games.

"I think this is one of the worst calls I've ever seen by Belichick", ex-Patriots wide receiver Donte Stallworth wrote on Twitter.

Border Patrol agents say they rescued a family whose children were dropped from the top of the 18-foot border fence Monday. Just before dusk, three thin people squeezed through the fence on the beach and were quickly picked up by the U.S.

The New England Patriots visit the Miami Dolphins in a regular season NFL football game at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL on December 9, 2018. "I've never really been a part of anything like that". "But these guys stuck with it, especially this year, and they executed that one for sure".

Several Dolphins players said they worked on "Boise" every week, and did so most recently on Friday. Then Drake was off and running, eluding Patriots defenders, as he headed for the end zone. The Dolphins defeated the Patriots 34-33.

"We had them right where we wanted", Tannehill said dryly.

The Patriots quarterback finished the game with 358 yards and three touchdown passes.

New England would have clinched its 10th consecutive AFC East Division title with a win, but will now have to do so with by winning one of in its remaining three games, along with a another Dolphins loss.
