Eagles say they prepared for special teams trick plays all week

The Miami Dolphins Shock The Eagles, Cowboys Retain NFC East Lead

The Miami Dolphins Shock The Eagles, Cowboys Retain NFC East Lead

With a record of 2-9, the Miami Dolphins have nothing to lose this season. Instead of lining up in a typical formation, Dolphin's kicker Jason Sanders and four blockers lined up on the left side of the field, while three blockers went to the right side.

It was the first time since 1977 that a kicker caught a touchdown pass.

Sanders then completed the extra point, meaning that he scored all seven points on the play - a stat which is a rarity in the modern game. The Philadelphia Eagles love to run a lot of tricks plays, so it's shocking that this team constantly falls victim to them as well.

The Dolphins had the play of the day in the National Football League on Sunday, a trick play on special teams that saw punter Matt Haack throw a touchdown pass to kicker Jason Sanders.

When all was said and done, the score proved to be a vital one as the Dolphins emerged with a 37-31 win in overtime to claim what was just their third win of the season.
