The Five Greatest Games in Dolphins-Patriots History

Categories: Sports

3.) That A.J. Feeley Game! (December 20, 2004)



2004 was a rough year for the Dolphins. Ricky Williams announced his retirement just days before the season began, and Miami started the season 1-8, forcing Dave Wannstedt to resign. The Dolphins then had Jim Bates as their head coach and A.J. Feeley as their quarterback.

Then, the mighty Patriots came to Sun Life Stadium with their 12-1 record to face the lowly Fins and their 3-11 record for a Monday Night showdown that everyone assumed would be the most epic cockpunch any team has ever delivered to another team in the history of sports. A shellacking waiting to happen.

But then, the game was played.

With a roster filled with no-names (except for Jason Taylor), the Dolphins upset the undaunted Patriots in what is one of the biggest upsets in franchise history, not to mention one of the most memorable wins. With the season a full-on kick to the groin, the Dolphins played this game like it was their Super Bowl. The defense intercepted Brady four times, while Sammy Morris ran for two touchdowns.

In was a memorable night indeed, inspiring the above video which is both sappy as balls, and awesome at the same time. 

Kicking Patriots ass should always be accompanied with the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack.

You guys have been insignificant for so long that I'd forgotten what assholes Miami homers can be!  Must be from the lack of chowdah in your diet!

@byChrisJoseph ‘Irving Fryer was pointing in the wrong direction. God was on the field, wearing number 13.’ That was beautiful. *wipes tear*
