Kenyan Drake runs past Rob Gronkowski

It is hard to find fault in a game that ends the way yesterday did but facts are facts and the Dolphins didn't win the game as much as the Patriots lost it. "And I even got tickets", he said in the video.

Everything went right for the Miami Dolphins on their game-winning, walk-off lateral play Sunday against the New England Patriots. With that, Miami lived up to its nickname - the Magic City.

And what a play.

Ryan Tannehill said the Dolphins call that final play "Boise". "Not really surprised with how things turned out".

Tannehill threw it down the centre of the field to wide receiver, Kenny Stills, who shipped the ball right to DeVante Parker just before he was tackled.

"It twisted the wrong way", Brady said. He used a few cuts and changed direction multiple times before taking off down the sideline with the ball, Only Rob Gronkowski (!) - no, seriously - had a chance to knock Drake out of bounds, but he was far too slow for that task.

Several Dolphins players said they worked on "Boise" every week, and did so most recently on Friday.

"We knew what was going to go down".

Roger, The Unbelievably Ripped Kangaroo, Has Died
The massive red kangaroo weighed almost 200 pounds and stood about six feet seven inches, according to the sanctuary . In January, Mr Barns explained in a video that Roger was "retired" and was less aggressive as he was getting older.

The play brought to mind other National Football League last-second stunners, including Roger Staubach's "Hail Mary", the "Miracle in the Meadowlands" and the "Immaculate Reception".

You ready for the nicest play of the season?

The win moves the Dolphins to 7-6 on the season and drops the Patriots to 9-4.

As for why Gronkowski was on the field, Belichick said, "It would be his ability to play the deep, long throw". Stephen Gostkowski missed an extra point and a 42-yard field goal.

The NFL dubbed it a "Miami Miracle". Brady connected with three different receivers for scores: Julian Edelman on a 2-yard pass in the second quarter, Cordarelle Patterson on a 37-yarder and Gronkowski on a 16-yard reception.

The Dolphins started the play with seven seconds left in the game and on their own 31 yard line.

But they managed only three first downs and no points thereafter - until the final play.
