Miami Dolphins WIN Longest Game in NFL History

2016-09-25_185251In an absolutely grueling 7+ hour opening day event, the Miami Dolphins managed to keep their composure, and log a victory to move to 1-0 on the season, and 9-1 in Ryan Tannehill‘s last ten starts. Ryan barely skipped a beat, showing that there may not be as much rust to knock off as previously assumed. Despite a few mistakes here and there, the team never seemed out of control of what subsequently became the Longest Game in NFL History, thanks to a few lightning strikes in the general vicinity.

Reshad Jones had an absolute monster day, pulling in two interceptions that not only turned over possession but flipped the field as well, with returns of 26 and 54 yards. It seems as though the 30 year old safety will not be outdone by Minkah Fitzpatrick, who absolutely shined in his NFL debut. Kiko Alonso also added a third INT for a defensive unit that allowed just 13 points on the day, and his third in a Dolphins uniform.

It’s clear that his tight relationship with Tannehill is ready to pick up where it left off in 2016, and will likely result in his once again leading the team in touchdowns, despite the offseason addition of Danny Amendola and Albert WilsonJakeem Grant also made an impact in the passing game, not to mention an absolutely gorgeous 102-yard kickoff return score that went down as the second longest in the team record books.

Add in a vicious and ultimately effective rushing attack by Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore, and one thing becomes clear. The Dolphins reality is going to be far closer to fan expectations, than to the national narrative of the offseason which laughably placed the Dolphins among the league’s worst teams.
