    Dolphins Win!

    Dolphins%20Logo%202.gifHooray! The Miami Dolphins won't be going 0-16 this season after they beat the Baltimore Ravens in OT yesterday. They certainly tried their hardest to blow it in the 4th quarter when Cam Cameron played it safe for the go-ahead FG with a 3rd down run on the Ravens 5-yd line, and Jay Feely kicked the ensuing kickoff out of bounds with more than a minute left on the clock. D'oh! On 4th and goal on the half-yard line, with 12 seconds on the clock, Ravens coach Brian Billick also elected to play it safe and go for the tie rather than punch it in the end zone with Willis McGahee, which looks like a mistake in hindsight. The Ravens had the chance to win as they won the coin toss in OT and drove down to the Dolphins' 24-yd line, but Jason Taylor sacked backup QB Troy Smith for a 3-yd loss. Two plays later, Ravens K Matt Stover attempted a 44-yd FG, but the announcers had already jinxed him by pointing out that he was 5 for 5 in game winning OT field goals, so of course he missed it. The Dolphins got the ball, and three plays later QB Cleo Lemon hit Greg Camarillo in stride, and he was off to the races for a 64-yd score. You'd think they won the Super Bowl the way they celebrated after the game, but who can blame them? There's still an awful lot of Dolphins pride out there--heck, owner Wayne Huzienga was even spotted shedding tears of joy, and many of the undefeated '72 Dolphins squad were on hand to join in the celebration. It took 17 games to finally bury the curse of Nick Saban, but now the 'Phins can look forward to brighter days. Bring on the New England Patriots!!!
