The Miami Dolphins are now awesome at football. The Gatorade celebration thing? Still needs a little work. It makes sense -- they don't practice it much, after all.

After a nasty, defense-dominated, 37-0 win over the Chargers, the Dolphins wanted to cap off the big day with a celebratory shower for Joe Philbin, who sadly dealt with the passing of his father just days before the game. It was obvious the Dolphins played lights out for their coach, and as the seconds ticked down, players looked for, and found, their target -- plus a referee. Whoops!

The official reacted just as you would expect one would after having been surprisingly doused in ice-cold liquid -- like a total bitch.

The Miami Dolphins are officially back up in your ass, with the resurrection, after their third straight win. Ryan Tannehill continues to shine ever since Coach Philbin waffled on whether he was the no-doubt starter of the team.

The latest fantastic effort by Tannehill included 288 yards passing and two touchdowns in a complete ass-punting of the San Diego Chargers. Notice there is no mention of interceptions or fumbles, because those are things Ryan Tannehill has apparently decided he longer does, because Ryan Tannehill is now awesome.

The Dolphins look for their fourth straight win when they take on the Lions at 1 p.m. next Sunday in Detroit.
