Eagles - Cowboys

I was watching the game last night, and thinking about the last time Miami was involved in a close, hard-fought, high-scoring game where the pendulum swung back and forth and either team could win...
 
...and the conclusion I came to was that would be December 4, 2005.  Dolphins 24, Bills 23.  Chris Chambers catches a pass from Sage Rosenfels, who had come on in relief of an injured Gus Ferrotte at the end of the game.

That's not to say there haven't been any exciting games in between, but that one fit the bill for me.
 
Think about that.  For a scintillating, high-scoring game, you have to go back to 2005 to find a game like that.   36 games have come and gone in between...
 
 
And my point is: how many of these games has the NFL seen in that time span?  There have been about 576 regular season games in that span, and another 33 games including the playoffs, for about 600 games in total - maybe 25% fall into that category.  And Miami had none of them.

That's how bad this team is...
