OUCH!

Warning: don't watch this video if you're sun burnt. Goosebumps suck!

Thanks for that, Dave! I remember watching that game with my dad. I've never been more exhausted after a ball game than that one. What a roller coaster ride! And I'll add, even though we lost, it's still the greatest game in history imo.

...And I thought I was pretty educated on the history of my team. I don't remember ever hearing about this play. I guess that tends to happen when your fanhood begins during your team's darkest years..

I was like a junior in HS watching that game on TV. What a classic play with only 6 seconds left in the half. You hear how LOUD that Orange Bowl was??? Boy, would I love to hear that again when the new stadium revisions are built and hopefully winning football games.

The Orange Bowl gave the Dolphins about 3 pts on point spreads! Great memories.

As was I. Its a shame Miami lost that game. Would have been one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. One of the biggest chokes in NFL was Von Schamann kicking low on a 34 Yd FG in OT. Add to the fact he also missed a 43 Yder in OT because Winslow got a finger on it.

I remember that play and also the heartbreak when they lost the game in OT.

I got to see the first half and then had to go to work. I had the radio going in the stock room so I could listen to the 2nd half and Uwe choked big time! So hard to listen to....although I also liked the Chargers. Fouts and Marino had something in common, great QB's...HOF careers...and no rings.
