Miami scored a touchdown with no time left on the clock to defeat the Patriots 34-33.   That isn't the amazing part. The amazing part was the play itself.  Deep in their own end and trailing by 5 points with 7 seconds left, the Dolphins ... uh, just watch for yourself.  This will be on every end of the year highlight reel:

The only sad thing was that I wasn't watching it live.  The happy thing was that it was against the Patriots.  The shittiest dynasty team there ever was.

Why was Gronkowski out there on defence?

I expect they anticipated the Dolphins would throw the ball as far as they could and hope for either a lucky catch or a pass interference penalty. Plays like that often end up in a "jump ball" situation, with a bunch of guys from both teams waiting for the pass, jumping for it, and hoping their team would be the one to come down with it.  In a situation like that, who better to have jumping up for the ball than the Gronk?  He's one of the most sure-handed receivers, and he's also a huge strong man who would probably beat most receivers in a situation like that.

They were way too far from the end zone for a Hail Mary pass....

Anybody wondering why there is buzz building around the lowly Cleveland Browns should watch these two clips of Baker Mayfield throwing missiles.

With yesterday's win, the Browns are now NOT LAST PLACE for the first time since 2014.


Meanwhile, here's Patrick Mahomes II throwing a completion in a direction opposite to where his face is pointing.

And here is Patrick scrambling at full speed and throwing a 30 yard completion in a direction he is not running in.

Madness.

BTW - thanks 2 Kimmy for the storyline on the Browns.  It made me stop on this channel and watch a highly entertaining game down to the final electrifying sack in the closing seconds ...

I just love an underdog story, and the Browns are the doggiest underdogs since the Bad News Bears.

The NFL regular season has concluded!

Your surviving teams!

In the AFC: the Chiefs and Patriots win first-round byes. Colts vs Texans next week.  Chargers vs Ravens next week. Chiefs have home-field advantage for AFC playoffs.

In the NFC: the Saints and Rams win first-round byes. Eagles face Bears next week. Seahawks face Cowboys next week.  Saints have home-field advantage for NFC playoffs.


My favorite story of the season, the Browns, ended their Cinderella run with a loss to Baltimore. They had a chance to finish with 7 wins in their last 8 games and post a winning record for the first time since the stone age. They fell just short, but their loss had a silver lining: the Ravens win eliminated the disgusting Steelers and the loathsome Ben Roethlisberger from the playoffs.

The old Browns had some great years including a pre Super Bowl, NFL Championship. Jim Brown was one of the greatest running backs ever.

Well, I did say since the stone age. ;)

I vaguely remember them having some success in the 1990s. Bernie Kossar or something like that.
