Two teams combining for 5 turnovers and that was only in the first quarter.
Rain and rain and rain didn't help.
Field goal hits the upright and bounces out.
Another hits the crossbar and bounces in.
A blocked extra point turns into 2 crucial points going in the other direction.
Ryan Tannehill, who played well again, may be lost for not only the rest of this season but well into 2017.
Matt Moore steps in and after handing off for 2 series, hits a big pass to set up the win in the closing seconds.
What was Gase thinking by trying to squeeze in an extra play before kicking the game winning FG? That was about as stupid a move as I have ever seen.
It almost back fired, except for one glorious second left on the clock.
Despite all that excitement and the roller coaster of emotions, I am left wondering if the league actually influences their officials to do whatever they can to keep as many teams alive for the playoffs even if they screw one team out of a win and their rightful place in the playoffs.
We had 14 penalties called against us vs. only 7 against the Cardinals.
Now I know the refs aren't concerned about evening the penalties out but how many ticky tack calls will you call against one team that bails out the losing team and extends their drives vs. ignoring a direct hit below the knee that ends a QB's season.
The Cardinals are in deep shit right now. A win would've kept their playoff hopes very much alive.
This loss turns a lot of next week's Arizona TV channels from Cardinal football to something more interesting to the Arizona TV market.
Golf, basketball, horse racing, bowling, hockey, figure skating, basket weaving, you name it.
With ratings down, the NFL needs as many TV markets in the playoff hunt as possible.
With a loss, Miami would still be in the hunt.
I just gotta wonder. There were way too many calls going against us including James getting called for holding when he pancaked a LB early in the game.
It seemed so glaring, so obvious, that something is up.
It's now officially Jets Week II and we got Matt Moore under center.
I can only imagine how screwed we will be without even our "star" QB in the playoff hunt.
Would the NFL rather have Matt Moore or Joe Flacco or Ben Roethlisberger or Denver's Trevor Siemian or Titan's Marcus Mariota leading their teams into the playoffs.
Granted, one Cinderella is good for ratings but Matt Moore's foot won't fit that slipper.
Gonna be interesting.
