Miami Dolphins defeat Patriots, 24-20

Well, the dynasty isn't exactly dead ... But the Dolphins put a significant dent in the New England Patriots armor this afternoon.

Dolphins 24. Patriots 20.

It ended when Michael Thomas, signed last week, intercepted Tom Brady on fourth down with mere seconds to play. The Patriots in typical fashion had driven from their own 20 to inside the Dolphins red zone.

Ryan Tannehill, meanwhile, outdueled Tom Brady. He engineered the drive for the go ahead points. He hit the go-ahead TD. He finished the day 25 of 37 for 312 yards with three TDs and no interception. Tannehill's rating was 120.7.

Yes, this is the Dolphins biggest win under Joe Philbin.

Truth be told. Miami as a play off team is a one and out joke. GL LMAO

Bill you miss
EH

imagine if Tanny had not started off target. Great win!!!

IT FEELS GOOD!!!

Where's DarrylDunphy? Great poster had a few doubts, but I no he's elated too. Where ever he is. :)

Never, thought Craig was a Tannehill hater.

CONGRATS TEAM MIAMI FROM SNOWY NY, RESTORED MY FAITH IN THE OLE' TEAM. GIVE KUDOS TO THE SECONDARY, T HILL,AND YES, THE COACHING STAFF. NOW LET'S ROLL INTO THE PLAYOFFS.

NEXT YEAR MIAMI RULES THE EAST AGAIN !!

Buffalo will not be a push over next week. They already beat the fins once at home and it is going t be frigid in Buffalo. They can end up wrecking our season. We need to go 10-6 to make the playoffs.

The troll comments really seem to have disappeared after this win.

Great Job Miami!!

IT was the Defence Stupid Eh?

Craig was not a "hater" he doubted he was the answer and said we should draft a QB in early rounds.

I hate my stupid son.
He has always been a jackasss

NOOOOOO APE you said it was the QB stupid....EHHHHHHH


PATS....better play calling and coaching, it's so obvious

Another stupid post by a clueless blogger. Obvious? Obvious you're a complete moron. LOL!!!

orlando 9-7 will get us in playoffs

I had the Dolphins score right, 24pts.

Just expected the defense to play better. But they made stops when they needed.

bill any word on whats wrong with grimes?

I cant find it but it appeared to be a leg??

Biil A,

You got me all wrong, Bill. i was hard on Tannehill when he was making mistakes like crazy and costing us games. The Buffalo game wasan example of that. What
I said was if it continued then the team should consider sitting him. I was even in favour of drafting a QB third or fourth round in April. Atno time did I give up on Tannehill or say he wasn't the answer.

Get your facts straigh Bill A....

The defence who has the db from SF won the game stupid
Eh?

4th and 5 and we go for it. It was about time we played to win, and T-Hill adjusting pass and Clay (MVP) makes the first. Thats the game winner right there. T-Hill great game, Wake hit Brady often and he will have to sit in the ice. I am enjoying this team. Great job Miami!


It's not fair, New England has a professional team.

Another stupid post by a clueless blogger. Professional? If that's what it takes to be a loser, you're a real Pro my man. LOL!!

Bill A.

Don't be expecting Kris Poozy to come here and eat crow. His game is to run, hide, and avoid.

thill was the man. so excited going forward finally having a qb

That was a freaking awesome win

Great ,Great win Lets enjoy and on to COld,Cold Buffalo 10-6 looks good.Nice going Phins, Gave me a coronary at the end but good job.Proud to continue wearing the Dolphin gear up here in Canada. Pls guys do not lose next week as my son in law is ahuge Bills Fan and it would be a crappy Xmas at his house if we lose next week(Which we Won't)

next week hangs on health of grimes and carrol. no clue whats wrong with them

And to think people were giving Ireland hell for signing M.Thomas. Proclaiming that Ireland already failed with the 2 rookies he drafted.

People forget he did a similar move last season for D.Patterson.

Coyle still has a lot of growing to do as a DC. But one thing is for sure the guy knows what a DB looks like. You can tell that is his specialty.


Funny, they had enough cap room to sign Dansby, Burnett, Long AND Bush! Ross is a cheap SOB!

Another stupid post by a clueless blogger. We just won 3 games in a row and we're in excellent position to make the playoffs and all you can come up with is Ross being a cheap sob? LOL! Wow, you are a big time idiot my friend. Let me guess, you're a Dolphins fan right?? A**hole...


Craig was not a "hater" he doubted he was the answer and said we should draft a QB in early rounds.

Posted by: Craig M | December 15, 2013 at 04:29 PM

craigy my facts are straight.....look above I even defended you. You cannot come on here day in and day out and get abusinve with good bloggers and expect what you say to just go away. You gave me hell over Tannehill and even accused me of being "Daytona"...but hey we are both Dolfans and today was a bigwin so how about we save this for another day??

This blog must have been a treat during the game today...lol. I don't come here during games any more. Too many losers......

Guys we won't have to hear about 'what a reach Tannehill was at 8' any more.

How about, 'could have RGIII but instead we draft Tanne-bust'?


Or....'Daniel Thomas, one of the worst running backs I've ever seen'.

Or...'Clabo, the worst pick-up of the offseason'......


Fukking putzes.....

lol bill

All of these so called fans and trolls can kiss m hairy white arse!!! its about time we start getting love butthat never going to happen because there are idiots all over the world. Fact is we got it done today in excellent fashion and there is no denying it. Go Fins!!!!!!

Not only is Tannehill redeemed. So is Jeff Ireland. How so? He is building his record.

Sam Brenner
Michael Thomas

The man is doing his job.

john very strange post man

Never a Tannehill hater, Bill A. I was down on him when he was costing us games. I've given him kudos the last couple of weeks and he was great again today. As I said at the time,part of playing QB is you get criticism when the team isn't winning. May not be fair but thats how it goes.

bodine lets not go crazy over thomas. that secondary was horrible after carrol and grimes left. could be ugly in buffalo if they are gone but thill can win it for us


Philbin gets out coached in every game. Win or lose. He sucks

Posted by: Bert | December 15, 2013 at 01:30 PM

Another stupid post by a clueless blogger. He sucks? After this team made national headlines for the WRONG reasons, they stuck together, have won 3 in a row, just defeated Tom Brady and he sucks?? How retarded can you be? Bert???? Go back to Sesame Street you idiot. LOL!!

Way to go Fins !!! Tannehill is the real deal !!! Gotta take care of business the last 2 weeks. Great team win today. The corner injuries are scary, but for today lets enjoy the win.

Philbin handled his first crisis as a HC with aplomb.

Things are good with the team folks.

Yeah stupid homers,The defence didn't win this game,it was the miss fires on all of the long balls that did Eh?

I'm sorry but the T-Hill debate has never been 50 shades of Grey. It has always been pretty black and white on this blog. You either like him or you wanted him replaced.

And you can count with 1 hand the people here who have always liked T-Hill.

1 of the Big 3 (YG aka Sam), Dashi, Mark in Toronto, and about 2 others.

montreal come on man, have just one take. u have never had one. be great to see what u think each game

any word on whats wrong with grimes?

Posted by: dusty bottoms | December 15, 2013 at 04:28 PM

Yes. He read one of your posts.

I will defend Bill's comments because I have seen Craig run his mouth on MANY occasions about all kinds of things on this Blog. Our offence sucks, QB sucks, Defense sucks, OC and DC sucks, Ross sucks, Ireland sucks. Please Craig you friggin loser go blow smoke up somebody elses butt!!


we should just lose this game and get a better draft pick.

Posted by: dusty bottom boy | December 15, 2013 at 01:42 PM

Best Post of the day!!! Need I say more?? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Craig was not a "hater" he doubted he was the answer and said we should draft a QB in early rounds.

Posted by: Bill Arnsparger | December 15, 2013 at 04:27 PM

dashi ive been high on thill from day one

dusty I'm not going crazy over Thomas. I'm going crazy over the fact that Ireland picked the right guy to bring in just days ago and he saved the game.

And kudos to Sherman for that 4th and 5 call.

And kudos to RT and Clay for making the 5 yards.

Things are looking up.

Hi Dashi girl!

7th straight game for Tanny over 84 rating and he still isn't running the ball much.

One take?? I'd rather shut my mouth than look like a complete idiot. You should try it. LOL!!! But hang on, I've got more...Your turn is coming...

true bodine. and true bill, but what doesnt craig hate. he would probaly hate kate uptons boobs if asked

The officials tried to help them but they failed like brady.

Looks as though the team is coming into its own. Very nice to see the development in the young qb. Another strong offseason, and continued growth out of the young players and this team can really become something special.

exactly montreal, u have no thoughts of your own. your not a fan. i mean whats the pt of being here. wasting your day isnt it. u must have something better to do

Tannehill is good Im proud of his progress , but still think Matt Moore would be hitting Wallace in stride scoring many more points, we`d of won more games with less stress

Look some of you guys..and you know who you are were just complete jerks regarding T-hill. You guys didn't want to hear he was young, inexperienced, he had leaky OL or anything in spite of being told you need to wait. You guys don't understand that you can't expect immediate results with young players. Development take time and patience. Fine with me if don't get it...but just eat your crow and give it up. This guy is our future.

Posted by: Dashi | December 15, 2013 at 04:40 PM

I have been defending, fighting and arguing with Craig, Kris, MarC, MCARCO, Sam, Ape Tamer, Fire Ross, Tannepuke...you name them I have stood up for Tannehill. That's why you see me getting attacked so much even when Im not on here they attack.

no doubt griese, 2014 gonna be so fun

when looking back on T'hill's career, this could be the pivotal game that changes the "guard" in the AFC East. Brady is by no means done, but his best is in the rear view mirror. For T'hill its all aqua blue skies ahead.
Go Fins!
