Miami Dolphins’ ‘Miami Miracle’ gets Tecmo Super Bowl treatment
The miracle play from the Miami Dolphins in Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots has officially received the Tecmo Bowl treatment.
Miami pulled off one of the wildest plays in NFL history when Kenyan Drake scored a 69-yard touchdown on the final play of the game to prevent the Patriots from clinching the NFC East.
So, to honor the occasion, the play got the recognition it deserved when it entered the virtual world of Tecmo Bowl.
And just like always, the classic video game came through with an awesome representation of what took place at Hard Rock Stadium.

For those keeping score at home, player No. 1 is Drake and player No. 2 is Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was unable to make the tackle as the Dolphins running back scampered into the end zone.
It was the type of play that probably wouldn’t happen 99 times out of 100 (or likely even more than that), but all it took was that one time for the Dolphins to secure a huge victory in stunning fashion.
The win helped Adam Gase’s team stay in the playoff hunt, and while that was great in and of itself, it had to be even better due to delivering a shocking defeat to their division rival.
Miami now sits at 7-6 on the season heading into a crucial Week 15 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
After that, the Dolphins will have games against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills to round out the regular season.
