When people talk about the Miami Dolphins as a franchise it’s the Perfect Season of 1972 that always comes up first, so for the team to be unbeaten at any point of a season is special. Today’s exciting win over Atlanta has the Dolphins sitting at 3-0 for the first time since 2002.
By scoring 27 points in the victory in front of a thrilled home crowd at Sun Life Stadium, Miami has now scored 20 or more points in the first three games of a season since that same 2002 season.
“I’m excited about being 3-0,” said veteran long snapper
Trailing 20-13 late in the third quarter and having its previous drive ended with an interception, Miami looked like it was heading towards its first loss. It looked bleaker after the defense forced a three-and-out only to have the offense move backwards and be forced to punt from its own 25 to give the ball back to the Falcons offense.
Denney Makes History
Long snapper John Denney moved into sole possession of the franchise record for most consecutive games played at 131 when he took the field for the first punt of the game. He was tied with Jason Taylor.
“It’s always nice but I’m more excited about the win right now,” Denney said.
“We’ve got a damn good football team, that’s what it tells me and that’s what it’s all about.” – owner Steve Ross when asked what being 3-0 tells him
Miami travels to New Orleans for a primetime game next Monday against the Saints at the Mercedes Dome with an 8:40 p.m. kickoff.
