« 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?

WHOOOOOOO! It's about time we had a reason to celebrate. The last time was moments before Lamar Thompson's incredible 200+ hard day vs. the Colts. I know they lost to the Ravens the next year but I didn't see that one... Whooooooo!!!

Also Patriot free playoffs. This is one of the best seasons ever.

I WILL BE RUDE TO ONE PERSON TODAY AND THAT IS
the yellow belly coward in Alabama!

WE WIN!!! WE WIN!!! WE WIN!!!

OH MY GOD I REALLY AM OVER JOYED.OUR FISH DON'T SMELL THERE ONLY PLAYOFF BOUND BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dolphins are back

ARMANDO,

PLEASE DO A PIECE ON ZACH THOMAS AND JASON TAYLOR AND HOW THEY FEEL, OMG TALK ABOUT IRONY!

I don't have the words for this win. The Jets are our most hated rivals and we beat them when all was on the hazard.

My only comments about this game and then the next one next week are this: I can't believe the Jets offensive gameplan. They have the leading rusher in the AFC in Thomas Jones and he doesn't see the ball 20 times in this game? I love my Dolphins but their D is suspect against big running attacks. Mangini really played in Miami's hands in this one by having Favre throw 40 times. I'm sure Baltimore will not make that mistake. Look for about 40 rushes from them next week. It'll be a two-chin strap game.....

One more thing: any word on Martin? He's such a big weapon and we'll need him next week. Haynos almost gave me a stroke w/ his fumble.

I bet JT is having thoughts now LOL!

How sweet was the hit Bell put on Favre on the last play of the game?

DOLPHINS DID IT PATS AND JETS ARE DONE

EVERYBODY!
tune into the nfl channel and watch deion sanders back pedal

YEAHHHHHHH MIAMI!!!!!!

A group of friends gathered around the computer here in Rio to watch the game on the NFL broadband package. What an amazing game. Pennington really deserves this for bringing in professionalism and a will to win back to the Miami QB position. The entires team rallies around it. The verdict is in, DOLPHINS RULE!!! I'm actually hopping on a plane and going to Miami this week in order to make it to the game!

I'VE NEVER BEEN MORE PROUD TO BE A MIAMI DOLPHINS FAN!!! Thank you Miami!!! You made my wish come true!

I am amazed, this Dolphins team is truly the second coming of the 70's no-name team that won games as a unit and they now have the greatest turn around in NFL history to show for it. To see Miami win the AFC East and be back in the playoff's is fantastic. Chad Pennington should be the league's MVP, he is a true leader and we were SO lucky to get him.
GO MIAMI- ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!

CHASE......HELL YEA!

Felipe (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)! I LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
