(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.
