(Please welcome new edition to the F.F.I. crew, Abbey Radeka, who has an update on one of the wildest plays, not only in Dolphins, but NFL history.)

The legendary touchdown play known as the “Miami Miracle” is still being talked about as one of the best finishes to a game that Miami Dolphins fans have ever seen (and likely will ever see). As you are probably aware, in December Miami pulled off nothing short of a miraculous touchdown in the final :07 seconds to defeat New England 34 – 33.

Now, it’s up for “Best Play” for ESPN’s 2019 ESPY Awards. The Dolphins tweeted this today, encouraging fans to vote.

The 69 yard touchdown by RB Kenyan Drake, is just 1 of 16 highlights that are in the running for Best Play. Here is the complete list from espn.com

– Miami Miracle: Miami Dolphins Stun the New England Patriots

– Kawhi Leonard Drains Game-Winner at Buzzer in Game 7

– Derrick Henry’s NFL-record 99-yard run vs. Jaguars

The winning play will be determined through bracket-style, online voting from the fans. Right now, plays are being voted on to make it into the “Elite Eight.” Fans can also vote for other categories such as Best Male/Female athlete, Best Breakthrough Athlete, Best Performance, and many more.

Voting is open now at espn.com/espys. Winners will be announced during the show on July 10th, airing on ABC at 8pm (EST).

Whether it officially becomes “Play of the Year” or not, the Miracle in Miami can claim that it is the first walk-off game-winning touchdown to involve multiple lateral passes in NFL history.
