Pats struggle to explain using Gronk in final play

Miami Dolphins stun New England Patriots with 'miracle' rugby-style touchdown

The New England Patriots were stunned on what would be called the Miami miracle in a shocking 34-33 defeat to the Dolphins in the last seconds of the Week 14 matchup.

"It starts with me".

Many Patriots fans are waking up Monday morning wondering why Bill Belichick had Rob Gronkowski on the field for the final play in Sunday's devastating loss in Miami.

The Dolphins' hopes looked to be all but over when they got the ball back trailing, 33-28, with 16 seconds to play.

The celebratory mob scene in the corner of the end zone broke out far from Ryan Tannehill.

"Gronk was in because that is a "last play" defense".

New England was set to test Minkah Fitzpatrick who didn't have one of his better games. "I lost track - I thought we had one timeout". At times receivers were not only wide open but standing with no one around them. "I've never been a part of anything like that".

Thailand have drawn defending champion U.S. for their first match of the 2019 Women's World Cup in Paris in June and July. In Group E , the Football Ferns will look to win their first game at a FIFA Women's World Cup in France .

The band wasn't on the field, but the Miami Dolphins pulled a Stanford-Cal-like miracle on the final play of the game against the New England Patriots.

Several Dolphins players said they worked on "Boise" every week, and did so most recently on Friday.

Gronkowski stumbled in his unsuccessful attempt to tackle Drake and told a postgame media conference: "We've practiced that play a few times for the Hail Mary, you guys have seen it before, just go up and get the ball". It was a salute to guard Ted Larsen, who made a key block on the play to leave just one defender between Drake and the end zone: Gronk.

"They changed it up a little bit and I did sucky".

Miami's "Drake Escape" prevented the Patriots from clinching their 10th consecutive AFC East title.

The Patriots quarterback finished the game with 358 yards and three touchdown passes. Well after their loss to the Colts on November 25, many left the Dolphins for dead as they had a 5-6 record as they were a long shot to make the playoffs.
