The 2-2 Dolphins travel to Atlanta to play the 3-1 Falcons.  The Falcons are 9.5 point favorites over our Dolphins.  Can Jay Cutler and the Dolphins offense finally get on track?

Stay tuned Dolphins fans, 1:00PM on CBS, or your favorite streaming site!

Dolphins beat the home favorite Falcons in a stunning upset as Dolphins drive late in the game to break the 20-20 tie and win it with less than a minute to go with a 48 yard Cody Parkey FG.  The Dolphins seal the win with a Cordrea Tankersley INT of Matt Ryan with 33 seconds remaining.

  26. The Flying Pig says:

  27. Rhino says:

    a first down would be HUGE , regardless of FG or TD to follow… drain that clock. Atlanta has some scary dudes on offense

  28. Ken says:

    Would have preferred a TD there

  29. Mike E. says:

  36. manitobafinfan says:

    Atta biy Freeman

  38. Mike E. says:

    Ohhhhhhhhh Timmons

  39. The Flying Pig says:

    Kiko shopping for receiver s

  40. manitobafinfan says:

    Lmao at Alonzo

  41. The Flying Pig says:

  48. The Flying Pig says:


  49. son of a son of a shula says:

    Whomp there it is

  50. manitobafinfan says:

    Woooooohoooo Jones !!!!!

  51. Mike E. says:

    Tank forced the INT, I was so close . . . .

  52. Rhino says:

    woo hoo…. 1st INT
    looked like we were gonna lose and suddenly we are gonna WIN

  53. manitobafinfan says:

    And tes good job Tank

  54. Ken says:

    Holy shit I can’t believe we’re going to win this game

  55. wyoming85 says:

    Way to go Rook!

  56. BailBondMike says:

    I couldn’t bare to watch the second half. What happened?

  57. Tim Knight says:

    Fuck yeah!!!!!

  58. Mike E. says:

    Wow, what a HUGE win. We were left for dead after the 1st half

  59. The Flying Pig says:

    I told you Oinkers

    I told you weird shit was happening today!

  60. Rhino says:

    That is one huge fucking win right there!!! On the road vs NFC defending champs … down 17-0 at half.
    Translation: Gase’s Cutler gets another week lol

  61. son of a son of a shula says:

    Good call Mike E

  62. stangerx says:

    Guess the board isn’t going to be as active trwm 🙂

  63. BailBondMike says:

    Just kidding, I couldn’t bare not to watch my team. Are you kidding me Whooooo Hoooooo!!!!

  64. rgs322 says:

    Much better half… very good win!!!

  65. D says:

    That int was all because of tankersly PD

  66. son of a son of a shula says:

    20-0 shutout in the second half. We need to build off that

  67. herdfan says:

    I can’t believe we won that game. Got home in time to see the first TD….was afraid to post anything….didn’t want to jinx anything. lmao


  68. D says:

    Maybe this is our turn around point.

  69. CavalierKong says:

    Woohoo!!!!!!!! Give Cutler and the offense credit for coming alive. And the defense was f*cking STOUT the 2nd half.

  70. naplesfan2010 says:

    Holy Shit!

  71. naplesfan2010 says:

    D pitched a full half shutout of the best offense in the League (sorta)

  72. son of a son of a shula says:

    We’re hot, we’re going home, we’re looking for revenge. And the FU Fest is coming down!

  73. D says:

    If the pats wind up losing this that would be a nice combo day

  74. Brian in NY says:

    I cannot believe we just won that game

  75. Mike E. says:

    Refs robbed Jets of a TD. ASJ scored, they bullshitted the Jets out of that TD

  76. manitobafinfan says:

    Yep Fest game just got a whole lot more interesting, maybe Mike will not tailgate all game now 😎🍺🍺

  77. herdfan says:

    Guess it’s a good thing we didn’t trade Landry huh?

  78. The Flying Pig says:

    Amazing what you can achieve when your coaches are not high on cocaine!

  79. BailBondMike says:

    Son, What a great birthday present this is !!! Hell Yeah!!!!!!!!!

  80. Brian in NY says:

    Cutler player very well today. Ol as well- funny how that works…

  81. Tim Knight says:

    Landry showed his value today. His clutch plays and toughness aren’t always measured in pure stats. When he and Ajayi are balling we have a chance.

  82. wyoming85 says:

    Cutler still trowing at players knee’s!
    But I’ll take the WIN BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  83. D says:

    Apparently the Jets lost at least in part to a bad call on what should have been a Jets TD

  84. stangerx says:

    We were the biggest dog on the day and down 17-0 at half.

  85. D says:

    It was ruled a TD. I don’t know how the hell they overturned that

  86. Phindog says:

    Awesome Win !!!

  87. D says:

    9ers coming back against the skins

  88. stangerx says:

    Gave up 17 to the Falcons at their home…..this D is for real.

  89. Mike E. says:


    I meant who were the Jets playing against? That was an ASJ TD, and they took it way. Totla bullshit. What pours salt on the wounds is I have ASJ in FF today

  90. Mike E. says:

    What a big play by Trubisky!

  91. olddolphan says:

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME COMEBACK WIN!!! WHO in their right mind would think the Dolphins would have ZERO touchdowns running the ball after FIVE FULL GAMES AND BE 3-2???????
    DID you folks notice the looks on the Atlanta fans’ faces after Miami tied the game?? Hell, even some of the players had that “Here we go again” look in their eyes. The second half of this game was the best half of football Miami has played in a VERY long time!!
    BOY, the Jets FEST game sure looks huge now, doesn’t it?!?!?!

  92. D says:

    9ers 0-6, it’s going to be them or Giants picking first

  93. manitobafinfan says:

    Lions saints game is insane

  94. pheloniusphish says:

    I told you….gotta have faith.

  95. Tim Knight says:

    Outside of a couple of big runs we really don’t allow teams to establish a running game. Good to see. Gotta give the FO and Burke credit for retooling this defense. It’s night and day compared to last year.

  96. pheloniusphish says:

    Yeah, defense is for thing is that their best plays and pressures is out of a four man front, no blitze.

  97. Mike E. says:

    Phelonius Phunked Up Phish

  98. Tim Knight says:

    Howard, Tank and McCain have been very solid and Jones seems to be in the right place at the right time a lot. 🙂

    The DL and LBs are playing physical and flying around. Harris is coming along too.

  99. naplesfan2010 says:

    Ajayi —– 26/130 and a 5 yard average

  100. naplesfan2010 says:

    Harris held the edge on a play today that 3 wks ago went for a long run cuz he flashed up field too soon

  101. naplesfan2010 says:

    Landry — 8/62 and a TD

  102. naplesfan2010 says:

    Stills 4/49 and a TD

  103. Mike E. says:

    Front 7 look real good, and Tank is getting it done. It’s clear Allen is a negative, but Jones is a player, and Howard is doing alright, but they pick on him sometimes, and he hasn’t been able to stop them.

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Yes Howard has been getting picked on a LOT. Drooling over the D when we get McDonald in the games

    • Tim Knight says:

      Allen has been solid as well. He’s still part of the defense that doesn’t allow many points. Teams are going to make plays sometimes, especially ones with talent. We faced one of the best offenses today in their building, held them to 17 and shut them out in the 2nd half. Not easy to do and hard to say anyone is a weak link right now.

      Howard, Tankersley and McCain are all still developing. All 24 years old with Tank turning 24 in a month. Jones is playing all-pro, Allen has kept things in front of him, and McDonald is on the way after the next 3 games. 🙂

  104. Mike E. says:

    Good to see Phillips back and playing well

    • Tim Knight says:

      He played really well. Like a fire lit under his ass and he wanted to prove it. LOL

    • D says:

      I didn’t check how many snaps he was out there but he definitely was disruptive on a lot of plays. One Suh/Wake sack was really because if him. He blew up the very next play after it, and he had a few times where I saw him hustling on plays and being involved down field. Suh is in on a ton of plays away from him, that’s really a testament to his work ethic.

      • Tim Knight says:


        Phillips drops in coverage well and destroys the passing lane by his shear size. LOL

        I saw Ryan have a WTF look and I believe the play went for nothing as he was pressured. Maybe even sacked. I’m trying to remember it. But it made an impact.

  105. naplesfan2010 says:

    Vincent Taylor knocked down a pass did he not?

    • Tim Knight says:

      He’s been solid as well. The FO did a good job adding young talent to what they already had. Then add a vet LB like Timmons, DL Hayes, S Allen and even now a guy like Maualuga. McDonald waiting in the wings. 🙂

  106. Tim Knight says:

    Besides talent, the defense is playing better because the tackling is much improved. It was an emphasis all offseason and it really paid off.

    I’m a huge fan of defense and having my team play it well is a lot of fun. 🙂

  107. The Flying Pig says:

    Ravens lost

  108. Ken says:

    Our defense is really good. If we can get any offense we can be a playoff team

  109. Tim Knight says:

    The AFC is wide open.

  110. Mike E. says:


    Sold on the offense? LOL – Who is? They did just enough today.

  111. Ken says:

    Wasn’t sure what to make of D last week after beating up depleted Tenn team. No question what to make of it after beating the Falcons in Atlanta

  112. Tim Knight says:

    Nate Allen plays centerfield a lot. Even Jones drops deep on a lot of plays. We definitely play a don’t get beat over the top defense even though we did today. Once! That’s the difference. Not 2-3 times per game, just once. 17, 20, 20, 10, 17. That’s not easy to do in a passing league where rules favor more points than that.

  113. naplesfan2010 says:

    The Jets lost and the Ravens lost so we are ahead of them in the Wild Card race. LOL
    We are the 2nd Wild Card team at this moment.
    Actually, only 3 teams in the AFC have a better record than we do, and one of those must play tonight yet.

    • Tim Knight says:

      LOL @ the wildcard race after 6 weeks. Not making fun of you, Naples. I love your positivity. Maybe just a little early for that. LOL

  114. Ken says:

    Can Wake and Suh in competition for DPOY imo

  115. Ken says:

    Now I am in the mood to fest

  116. naplesfan2010 says:

    And only 3 teams have a better record in the NFC than we do, and one of those just lost Aaron Rodgers for the season.

  117. Mike E. says:

    I’ll say this, the Jets are no pushover at all. They practically beat the Patriots today, if not for the officials taking away a TD from ASJ, which was complete and utter bullshit. McCown is playing solid football, and their defense is always a challenge.

  118. Mike E. says:

    Hey Toba – I’m watching Carnival Eats on the Cooking Channel, and they’re at the Red River Exhibition in this episode. Have you ever been there? Are you somewhat near it?

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Hey Mike E yes have been there on occasion, that would be the equivalent of our State Fair , comes to town every June .. it is in Winnipeg where i live , on opposite side of city. 45 min drive. Did they have Little Bones Wings ??

  119. D says:

    WC and division titles may come down to last week this year. Most teams that would qualify for wither are separated by like 1 game right now

  120. Brian in NY says:

    Reshad with the INT- not Tankersley!

  121. Tim Knight says:

    The Aaron Rodgers loss is not just bad for him and the Packers, but for the NFL. He’s such a good QB.

  122. wyoming85 says:

    This is the Gase brilliance we have been waiting for!

  123. mf13ss says:


    Saw the highlights, saw the stats, read the blog comments, and tracked the game while at work today. Our O-Line didn’t give up any sacks, only gave up 2 QB hits, and they paved the way for Ajayi to go over 125 yards. Excellent work!

    Cutler’s still dinkin’-n-dunkin’, but at least he had a little more zip on the ball this week. Observation: there’s something funky with his throwing motion: it looks like he’s shooting darts rather than throwing a football. His 4.6 YPCompletion today is up a yard from last week, but it’s still HORRIBLE. And his 76.7 passer rating today is quite obviously sub-par. I maintain something is physically wrong with him, but he looked slightly better this week than last.

    Reshad ROCKS. PRIMETIME plays by Jarvis and Hayes. Parkey is a NICE Kicker. Gase made GREAT adjustments after halftime on both sides of the ball. Jake Brendel caught my eye in the Ajayi highlights, getting out smoothly to the second-level like Pouncey does.

    So now we can add a concussion to Pouncey, along with his hip problems… hopefully he recovers soon. If he misses an extended amount of time (as has been predicted)… NOT GOOD.

    GO PHINS!!!
    HELL YEAH!!!

  124. olddolphan says:

    THE ’72 DOLPHINS RECORD as the only undefeated team in NFL history will stand for another year. The Chiefs, the last undefeated team this season, just lost to the Steelers 19-13!! ___ALL HAIL THE ’72 DOLPHINS!!

  125. mf13ss says:

    Stick a fork in the Chefs*!!!
    1972 Miami Dolphins… STILL the only undefeated team in NFL HISTORY!!!

  126. Krishna says:

    What a great second half! And, a great send-off as we head to Florida and the fest tomorrow.


  127. naplesfan2010 says:

    plus 2 other contenders with the Dolphins for a playoff spot lost, Jax and Oakland.

  128. naplesfan2010 says:

    Here’s hoping the falcons are angry after losing 2 in a row and go in to Foxboro hot to prove something.

  129. naplesfan2010 says:

    Here’s hoping the Buccaneers and Fitzpatrick go into Orchard Park angry and hot to prove something next week.

  130. Brian in NY says:


    How about PSU at number 2!!!!!!!!!!

    #Dolphins have never lost a game (9-0) when #JayAjayi rushes for 77 or more yards in a game. #STUD 🐬🐬🐬

  132. Jahndoh30 says:

    Hey M13, i watched the game (for a change, been lots of radio broadcasts for me this year) and your quote of the QB hits tells me that hits and the PD stat are both super dependent on who’s keeping the boxscore. Maybe if it results in a penalty they don’t call it a QB hit? They were called for at least 2 if not 3 roughing the passer on ugly hits. Cutler got pretty roughed up today overall.

    Anyone else feel this way? Just my take on what I saw, but wondering if I’m alone….

    Proud of the OL at any rate. Ajayi was able to assert his will and without Pouncey they still got it done and won the game.

    • Mike E. says:

      He got thoroughly walloped on one play, one guy crushed him, the other helmet to helmet hit that looked pretty bad, but to his credit, he got right back up. There were a couple of other hits too, but that one is fresh in my mind

    • CavalierKong says:

      I thought the Falcons got pressure pretty consistently today, but Cutler was adept at stepping up in the pocket and moving out when it collapsed. He definitely took more than 2 shots, so yeah, it must not count as a QB hit when the play is negated by penalty which is kinda silly since the QB doesn’t suddenly not feel that hit, lol.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      well but that is why they throw the flag and that is why those punks don’t get a stat in their favor nor do our guys lose one … because you don’t reward illegal plays.

      We can’t hold our OL guilty if some jackass takes 2.5 steps after the play and smacks Cutler as he did today.

    Also the Falcons should want payback for the Super Bowl meltdown loss.

    I’m getting my QB hits and PD stats from ESPN, and I can tell ya that they only count the plays that COUNT (the official record, if you will). You ARE correct… Cutler got hit on a few plays that got called back due to penalty (un-necessary roughness was one of the calls).

    And we should also keep in mind that Cutler threw an INT that got called back due to penalty.

    Yeah, man. I think your point is VERY valid, to be sure. Cutler did get roughed up today.

    • mf13ss says:

      So in short — and in the reality of things — Cutler was hit about 5 times (HARD, a couple of time). That’s something that the boxscore will never account for. Good post.

  135. Mike E. says:

    Kong – It’s worth a look. It may have been one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen

  136. son of a son of a shula says:

    Krishna, send me your cell number if you want so we can reach you to see about Friday night.

    Have a safe trip, have fun see you next week

  137. CavalierKong says:

    So have we won the last 3 fest games?

  138. wyoming85 says:

    This could have been a 15 yarder!
    Way to keep your head Kiko!!!

  139. The Flying Pig says:

    New blog up

  140. son of a son of a shula says:

    Yeah 2014 was the heartbreaker to GB

    Going for 3 this year

  141. mf13ss says:

    WHO AM I???

    Player A: I’m 1st place in my division at 4-2 having played/started QB 5 games this year. I have thrown only 2 INTs thus far. I’ve been sacked 16 times this year thus far.

    Player B: I’m 1st place in my division at 4-2 having played/started QB 5 games this year. I have thrown only 1 INT thus far. I’ve been sacked 4 times this year thus far.

    Who is player A and who is player B???
