Miami Dolphins break out wild fake field goal for touchdown

Dolphins fake play

The Miami Dolphins pulled off an epic trick play to score on a 4th down against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Miami had a 4th-and-goal at the Philly 1 down 13-7 in the second quarter. They sent their kicking team on the field but lined up in a funky formation that spread linemen out to each side. Punter Matt Haack took a direct snap and ran towards the end zone. As three Eagles converged on him, he flipped the ball to kicker Jason Sanders for a shovel pass touchdown.

That could not have worked more perfectly. What a fake.

You wonder if this may be what the Colts had in mind on their 2015 debacle fake punt against the Patriots.

Credit to Miami for a well constructed play that worked to perfection.
