The Five Greatest Games in Dolphins-Patriots History

2.) Unleashing The Wildcat (September 21, 2008)

In September of 2008, the Dolphins were in desperate need to turn things around. Their season was on the brink of spiraling out of control. And now they had to go into New England to face the undefeated Patriots to salvage their year. Something had to be done. So, on the way to New England, on the team plane, the Dolphins' coaches hatched a plan: they would unveil an antiquated formation where the running back lines up at the QB spot, and the QB at the receiver spot, and anything goes after that. The formation: THE WILDCAT.

It was a desperate move.

And it fucking worked beautifully.

The Wildcat was born on this day, friends. And it not only threw the Super Genius Bill Belichick completely off his game, it turned the season around for Miami and effectively started the end of the Patriots' season.

Via the Wildcat, Ronnie Brown rammed a fist into the collective ass of the Patriots and turned them into his own personal hand puppet to the tune of 113 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns, 19 passing yards, and 1 passing touchdown.

Brown accounted for all 5 of Miami's touchdowns, leading his previously hapless team to a shocking 38-13 Ike Turner-esque bitch slap of New England in New England, ending the Pats' 21-regular season game winning streak and sending their season into a spiral. The Dolphins would end up winning the division and going to the playoffs, while the Patriots were eliminated from the postseason.

Rawr.

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*
