Kenyan Drake Offers Perfect Description Of Miracle TD Vs. Patriots

Kenyan Drake never will forget Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Miami Dolphins running back found the end zone on a multi-lateral play as time expired to beat the New England Patriots. The play covered 69 total yards with Drake motoring for the final 52 to give Miami a 34-33 win.

After the Alabama product broke a couple of tackles, he found himself with just one man to beat: tight end Rob Gronkowski who was the deep man in coverage in the event of a Hail Mary.

So, what was going through Drake’s mind when he saw he had to beat Gronk to get his team a much-needed W?

“It was me and Gronk, and I couldn’t let Gronk tackle me in that situation,” Drake said, via ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe. “Look, sorry Gronk, he’s a great player but I got somewhere to be, you know what I mean?”

We most certainly do, Kenyan.

The Dolphins’ miracle score was one of the more improbable┬áplays in NFL history and kept Miami in the hunt for the final AFC wild card spot. New England now is 1-5 in its last six trips to South Beach and now is a longshot to overtake the Kansas City Chiefs for the top seed in the conference.
