    My thoughts:

    Miami has the Dolphins, the greatest football team,
    They take the ball from goal to goal like no one's ever seen,
    They're in the air, they're on the ground, they're always in control,
    And when you say Miami....


    Not going to give an in-depth review because if you haven't seen the game, you don't want me to ruin anything. And if you have seen the game, you should not have a single complaint about how anyone played. Sure, the D could have tightened down sooner. Sure, special teams made a critical mistake. And yeah, one time the cover zero bit us bigtime. But man, what an incredible game.

    I've been saying for a few months now that when this offense clicked, we were going to see pure magic. The line wasn't great today. Tua had a few bad breaks on tipped balls. But ultimately none of that mattered because of the speed and talent on this team. Tyreek was worth every penny we paid....he almost passed out after that 2nd late catch because he spent every ounce of energy and air he had. What a freakin' beast!

    Great game guys- highly worth watching if you haven't seen it.

    Spoiler alert: This statement by KeyFin is a gross understatement.

    Props to Tua. I am admittedly a bit shell-shocked in a good way (as a Fin fan.) Now I just just want a little more consistency. But as impressive as it was the dynamic duo of Hill/Waddle are making his life much easier. It's like having a modern day Marx bros.

    What a comeback though, extremely enjoyable, especially against one of the teams I hate the most outside of the AFC-E

    Watching the Canes play last night as soon as they made a mistake and were down they folded.I thought Miami would do the same but they never quit that's what makes a champion. So happy to be a Fins fan today!

    What a game the D could have woke up a little earlier for my taste. Best game from Tua so far, hope only the first of many to come!

    How wild was Miami’s comeback? It’s the first time in 12 years a team has come back from a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

    From 2011 to 2022, teams trailing by 21+ in the fourth quarter have a record of 0-711.

    Wow, that's a mind-blowing stat! I was watching it like, "It's over...well, unless we score right away." Then boom. But then Lamar torched the cover zero and we didn't have time to allow any additional scores.

    By the time Baltimore kicked that field goal though, I knew we had it won. Freaking crazy, crazy game...that's our offense fellas! And honestly, that might not be the absolute best offensive performance we see this year.

    My thoughts.
    Tua’s interceptions weren’t bad interceptions. In both of them he was aggressively trying to fit the ball into a tight window. It wasn’t as if he threw badly or didn’t see the defender.
    Even though the offense wasn’t scoring points it kept moving the ball in the first 3 quarters.
    The Ravens secondary started playing closer to the LOS because we were making YAC on short throws, which opened up the deep balls to Waddle and Hill.
    Considering the Ravens were +2 on turnovers and had a ST TD we shouldn’t have even been in the game.
    The defense I thought played a risky game plan. Which burnt as on the 2 long Ravens TDs but also won us 2 fourth down stops.
    Lamar Jackson played about as well as it is possible for him and it still wasn’t enough.
    The OL looked a lot better than last week, but I’m still unhappy with the run blocking.

    On the Jackson TD, it appeared there was some mixup.
