Yesterday the Miami Dolphins gave us all a glimpse of what the NFL will look like once Skynet becomes self-aware. When the days of a real-life Terminator situation occur, our only hope of a Super Bowl victory will be punter-to-kicker trick plays like the beauty the Dolphins dialed up against the Eagles in Miami's improbable yet totally deserved 37-31 win.
To recap: The Dolphins did something awesome the NFL had never seen and won a football game. If you haven't put up your Christmas tree yet, now is the time, because it's a true Christmas miracle on these Hard Rock Stadium streets.
Behold, a glimpse into an NFL future only your great-great-grandchildren will witness: An extremely tricky play referred to in 2019 only as the "swinging gate" will undoubtedly be a routine "1-0-1-1-0-1-0-0-0-1" in 2089.

The Dolphins are scheduled to take on their former head coach Adam Gase and the New York Jets next week. If the rest of the world is smart, they'll tune in to see the Dolphins unleash another play they plucked off Mars with a rover.
