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

Patriots Miami Dolphins stun New England Patriots with 'miracle' rugby-style touchdown

It's a question that will linger over the New England Patriots for the next several days: Why was Rob Gronkowski on the field for the final play in the Miami Miracle?

That said, they are awesome to look at to capture the ups and downs of a sporting event, particularly a football game like the one between the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins, which ended with an improbable multiple lateral play to deliver a miraculous win to the Fins.

Amendola finished with just one catch for 10 yards in the game, but he was undoubtedly thrilled with the insane victory over his former team. The Dolphins score, the last of nine lead changes, prevented the Patriots from clinching the AFC East at least for one week.

"To tell you the truth, I just kind of blacked out".

"We missed opportunities", coach Bill Belichick said.

Tannehill drilled a good pass to Kenny Stills close to the halfway line, but a touchdown still looked a remote possibility when the wideout opted for a lateral pass to DeVante Parker, who then flicked the ball to Kenyan Drake. "Any loss could be the end".

Kenyan Drake ran the last 52 yards to score the famous touchdown but it was what led up to his finish that will go down in National Football League folklore.

Gronkowski said whenever he has played defense in practice, it has been to knock down a Hail Mary. "It's boring because you might go three years without calling one of them".

Brady threw for 358 yards and three scores, but the stunned Patriots (9-4) lost in Miami for the fifth time in their past six visits. In the end we've just got to do a better job than we did. "I saw Kenyan there, I said [to Parker], 'pitch it! pitch it!'"

The miracle play will have a huge impact on the playoff picture.

The victory did multiple things at once: it kept the Dolphins very much alive in the AFC wild card race, and it pretty much ended any hopes the Patriots had of claiming the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
