The Five Greatest Games in Dolphins-Patriots History
1.) Dan Marino Returns (September 4, 1994)
It was Dan Marino's first game back after suffering a season-ending Achilles tear the year before. Questions and rumors rumbled about.
Was Marino finished?
Was he washed up?
Would he ever be the same?
And then Marino came out and answered those questions by shoving his golden arm into everyone's collective chest and ripped out their still-beating hearts with a performance for the ages.
The Patriots' Drew Bledsoe had himself a monster game, throwing for 421 yards and 4 touchdowns.
But The Right Arm of God reminded the world that he was the greatest to ever play the game, and out-dueled young Bledsoe by throwing for 473 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Irving Fryer caught three of those touchdowns and, after every one, pointed to the sky to thank God.
Irving Fryer was pointing in the wrong direction. God was on the field, wearing number 13.
