What game am I watching?
The heretofore pathetic Miami Dolphins are physically dominating the New England Patriots on both sides of the ball. Ronnie Brown, involved in a barrage of trick plays, has run for 3 touchdowns and thrown for a fourth. The defensive backs have contained Wes Welker and a surprisingly quiet Randy Moss (who was called out by CBS broadcaster Solomon Wilcots for clearly giving up on a pass in the 3rd quarter). Matt Cassel has been under constant pressure by the Dolphins front line, including alleged big mouth Joey Porter, who is currently backing up his words.
And perhaps worst of all, the crowd is dead silent, as if defeat is inevitable. This is still the Dolphins we’re talking about. But what an amazing upset this will be. The statistics alone are mind boggling. The Patriots have won 21 straight regular season games… Miami has lost 11 straight on the road. Could both streaks be coming to an end?
28-13 Dolphins with 3:20 remaining in the 3rd.
