It is hard to believe that it has been almost 4 years since the Miami Dolphins last beat the New England Patriots. This Sunday, the ‘Phins will look to break a 6 game losing streak against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. The last time Miami won? We have to go all the way back to December 6, 2009. Who led the Dolphins to a 22-21 victory?
None other than Chad Henne and Tony Sparano.
The Patriots donned their gaudy red vintage uniforms and Tom Brady threw a deep touchdown toss to Randy Moss, who was known as the “Dolphin Killer” during his tenure in New England. However, Brady would finish the day the 2nd best QB from Michigan on the field, as 2nd round draft pick Chad Henne led his team to victory. Henne finished with 335 yards passing, 2 TD’s and a pick.
If you ask me, Miami is long overdue for a victory against the rival Patriots. While it is easy for me to say that, this Dolphin team will have it’s hands full come Sunday. Both teams are coming off last minute losses and blown leads, and I believe this game will come down to Miami’s ability to protect Ryan Tannehill and Miami’s ability to stop Tom Brady.
When both teams take the field on Sunday, I won’t able to prevent myself from seeing Tony Sparano fist pumping Dan Carpenter’s game winning field goal.
