Miami Dolphins and a blustery day await the Patriots today

However, shocker, may not be a strong enough word to describe exactly how the Dolphins beat the Patriots on Sunday.

Miami trailed the Patriots by five with seven seconds to play and the ball on its own 30-yard line.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill played a mistake-free game, finishing with 265 passing yards, three TDs, no turnovers, and 13 yards rushing.

The issue now for Baltimore is how to handle having two comparable but very different quarterbacks. While he didn't throw any interceptions, he also failed to throw any touchdowns.

Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi liked to call them "hat-and-T-shirt games" - contests that, if won, came with the bonus of a little swag to commemorate another title of some sort. Luckily, the Dolphins tweeted a clip in case you missed it or, like me, need to watch it 600 more times.

Old friend Brandon Bolden shocked the Patriots early with two rushing scores in the first half, as the ex-New England special teamer had his first two-TD game since college. New England's last hope at a stop on the play was tight end Rob Gronkwoski, who fell after slipping while trying to get in position to tackle Drake.

It is an enormous victory for the 7-6 Dolphins, fighting for their playoff life, and the 9-4 Patriots will take a hit in the hunt for home-field advantage.
