This is the victory Dolphins fans have been waiting for.
December, with the playoffs on the line against a divisional opponent. For the last decade, this game usually meant the end for the Dolphins, with the refrain "Maybe Next Year" being thrown around by the fans in the parking lot as they await their journey out of Miami Gardens, back to their homes from Stuart all the way down to Homestead.
But today's game was different, as the Miami Dolphins defeated the New England Patriots 24-20 in a dramatic victory that will likely be talked about for ages as being the official statement game of Ryan Tannehill's career (unless the Dolphins lose against Buffalo or the Jets in the next two weeks, which is the fear of any Dolphins fan).
So what did we learn from this game? Let's check it out.
