« Dolphins lead Jets 21-17 going into final quarter | Main | A new list of doubters begins to shadow Miami »

Miami Dolphins the AFC East Champions!

The Miami Dolphins completed the most amazing, improbable, astounding, unexpected, truly magical worst to first climb in NFL history today. They defeated and deflated the New York Jets, 24-17, at Giants Stadium.

Bring on the Baltimore Ravens!

This game means the Dolphins are the AFC East champs. This result means the Dolphins will host the Ravens either Saturday or Sunday at Dolphin Stadium.

It is the first time Miami is in the playoffs since the 2001 season. They lost to the Ravens 20-3 in that last playoff game so long ago. The Dolphins also lost to the Ravens earlier this year. 27-13.

There is no player who deserves this more than quarterback Chad Pennington. He returns to New York, to play the team that discarded him before the season started, and sends them into their offseason.

Pennington threw two touchdown passes this game. He fumbled once. He had no interceptions.

OK, so what do you think about this fanciful turn of events?

And what do you think about the upcoming matchup against Baltimore?

HAHAHAHAHHA @ 11-5 patsies...HAVE FUN FROM YOUR COUCH.

Pennington League MVP!!

Chad has his revenge

From a Phins fan here in Jersey who despises the color green here and these delusion Jest fans!

Thank you Miami! Thank you to the Phins fans making noise at the Swamp and celebrating in true fashion!

Now it's time to start booking a trip to Miami for next weekend.......

going to the play offs while the jets go home, so stick it to cuban

PRO BOWLER FAVRE WITH WHAT HIS 22-23 INTS?

the stupid jests gave up the MVP of the league in Chad and took the incredible blue jean wearing interception machine!!!!

DAN LEBASTARD AND ALL YOU CLOWNS IN THE MIA MEDIA THAT CRIED THE DAY CAM CAMORON SHOULD BE FIRE TODAY!

What a beautiful win! Happy times are here again. Now let's keep this train rollin'!

what el guru? speak english please

Fox, your problem is you're an egg head. Football is a game of passion. We won today. We play next week. We were 1-15 last year. I want to win next week like all finfans, but if we don't this season was still a fantastic success, among the greatest in the teams history. Such a turnaround is phenomenal, stupendous, incredible. So stop being an egg head and let us enjoy all this.

if u can that is...maybe you are just excited???

How ironic that Sham Cameron returns to Miami to face the 'Fins in the playoffs.

I'm worried about the Ravens, but, somehow we keep winning

What a game. Pennington gets the game ball. Completely balanced and in control.

11 and 5 AFC 2008 east champs! Sparano coach of the year! Chad should be the NFL's MVP.

Unstopppable Power!!!! GO BIGFISH!!!!

Worst to First. ALL RIGHT MIAMI!!!

WE BEAT THE J-E-T-S! I WISH I COULD TYPE NASTY STUFF ABOUT THE JETS BUT ILL BE CLASSY AND JUST ENJOY THE WIN AND LET IT SHAKE RADDLE AND ROLL!

He had one interception.

lets see what arack-niphobic and cubanmenace have to say!

Hey Whacky, any thoughts?

who cares about the ravens...really the season is an outstanding turn around...be satisfied with that and take any more wins as a special surprise!!! Chad has his best season and burns the wets down...favre is done again...at least until preseason next year...and we beat the ravens last year so the p[ressure is on them...

Its 1:30am here in Germany. I'm cracking the next beer!!!!

A perfect script. Beat the Jets in their building, expose Favre for what he is, and keep the Pats out of the playoffs even though they have 11 wins. Let the celebration begin in Miami and the whining begin in New York and New England.

Last year I moved to England and right now I I wish I were back in South Florida. This is a magical season, and come what may the Dolphins have regained pride, respectablity and identity.

The Ravens are beatable, though they pose the greatest challenge for the Dolphins yet this season.

Keep the magic rolling!

nice to see that clown neon deon sanders eat crow on tv after he picked the pats to win the AFC east and showed the Fins no respect all year.

the jests are done and so are the cheating patriots...revenge is nice....go phins

THEY DID IT!!!! I TOLD YOU THEY WOULD!!! HAHAHAHAHA....TAKE THAT, JESTS!!! TAKE THAT, PATSIES!!!!! G O D O L P H I N S !!!

I think it's time for all the critics to shut-up about the Dolphins! They have proven themselves more than anyone could have imagined a year ago!!

Tough for me as a New England fan to see the Patriots out of it, but congratulations to the Dolphins for a great season!

The opportunities were there in plenty. When we capitalize on those Wildcat chances, we will put up 40 on the Ravens!!!!

I´m a big Dolfan from Brazil and have just one word to spell: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!

Congrats to all Dolphin family all over the world !!!
Thanks Pennington, Brown, Williams, Fasano, Bess, Cobbs, Carpenter, Crowder, Porter, Goodman, Bell and all others ...

Thank you Armando for let us know all about Fins and share with us the passion for them !

Let´s go to the POST SEASON !!!

´d love to stay in Dolphin Stadium !

Cheers from São Paulo - Brazil

I LOVE THE F-ING DOLPHINS!!!!! WE KNOCKED OUT THE CHEATRIOTS AND THE SUCKS IN ONE GAME!!!

cUBAN mENACE,

You are my dear new freind. I am so excited I could kiss a cow but I would like to thank you for being a good sport. When the season started I would read your post and scratch my head but I knew you were also pretty decent football mind under the nasty green and white. I know how it feels to be on your end so good luck and see you next year. Tune in next week fot the whipping we're gonna put on the RAVENS!

AJ

(THERE MAY BE TYPOS)

HELLLL F*** YEA DOLFANS! WE DID IT! FINALLY WE DID IT! WHAT AN AMAZING SEASON!! WE COULDNT HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING BETTER THIS IS TRULY A CINDERELLA STORY!! DOLPHINS-SUPER BOWL BOUND!! I BELIEVE!!!!( IM CRYING RITE NOW)

Fifth one since the end of the game Dolfan abroad. Cheers.

Great win, great team and I didn't feel they were going to lose. Great game.

On to the Ravens at home. That is a good thing. Fill up the stadium and make some noise. Send some party girls over to their rooms next week. WE need some weak legs. hahaha

F-I-N-S FINS FINS FINS!!!!!

Playoffs baby! Who woulda thunk it a few months ago. Poor JT and Zach.

See ya next weekend!

I CRIED TOO! LMAO!

JT AND ZACH MISS THE PLAYOFFS.....WOW! I FEEL BAD FOR ZACH BUT A LIL LESS FOR JT.

Nfl.com has new england's picture in the playoff standings. Funny.

OH, SWEET REVENGE. THANK THE LORD. IM CRYING MAN.

What a great day to be a Miami Dolfan. Thank you so much for the great information and insight on this amazing year. Go Miami!!!

need to order my AFC east champs gear now. Cuban menace are you around? what happened to your super bowl bound jets??? HAHAHA!

We are AFC EAST CHAMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more Phil Simms commentating Dolphins football games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are the Kings of the AFC EAST!!!!

were gonna beat the ravens.we already played them and lost.this time we win.and ben rothlesberger is out.were going to the superbowl.

Wow, what a great way to end the regular season and start (it's 1.37am CET) this week. Got to get some sleep before work... and I honestly don't know how am I going to do it. Thanks Chad! Thanks Tony! Thanks Jeff! Thanks Bill!!!

Go Dolphins!! All I hoped for this season was that they wouldn't embarass us again. OMG, the playoffs!! We beat the Ravens last year, hopefully we can do it again. A blow out game would have been wonderful but I am so happy with this win. And to knock the Patriots out of the playoffs was icing on the cake.

where are the TED GINN haters???????????

somebody ask that dacing queen JT how it feels to play for a contender... I feel bad for Zack in dallas not so much for that jerk pretty boy Jason Taylor.

I'm so excited, I'm really happy for our season and for this result. I would like to celebrete but I'm italian and I'm the only football fan and fins fan here...anyway!I was looking forward this moment since I started to watch football!Come on come on come on!!!!!!!!!!Thanks Chad, Thanks Joey Thank Tony, Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!!Go Dolphins!!!!!!!!!

Congrats Fins; finally able to beat the Jets. Had a great feeling about today's game with interception prone Brett at the helm. Brett should have retired awhile back, but greed and ego got the best of him. Good thing for NY; greedy bastards, go home, whine and think what money will buy next year. Go Fins, Baltimore and former Miami hoomie Ray Lewis next.

Oh my GOD! How about THAT? Tears in my eyes here in England.

The Suicide hotlines in New York and New England are now open. Next caller please

I predicted 11-5 at the beginning of the season, but for it to happen is so much more fulfilling.
