    Video 1 Watch a Classic Game! 1986 Divisional Playoffs Browns @ Dolphins

    This is kind of cool. Just stumbled upon this. For the fans like me who weren't really old enough to watch games back then, watching this video is kind of like watching a live game with Marino and all the classic players if you don't know the outcome. Enjoy!

    Great and underrated game. Huge comeback by Marino against kosar in the playoffs.

    It is very interesting to see guys like Bokamper, Joe Rose and Nat Moore playing together in the game. A lot of big name Dolphin players on this squad.

    The game sure was different back then. The Browns seemed like they ran on every down. The WRs all ran much slower routes. Its like none of the WRs ever went full stride. And damn, Marino's laser arm... I don't think the NFL ever saw anything like that ever again.

    Roby was an all pro punter, one of the greatest punters to play the game.
    He would hit the scoreboards in indoor stadiums with his booming punts to create hang time.
    Fields is good too, but not at Roby's level. IMHO

    I know that is why the post I responded that is backwards. Fields is like a white Roby.

    I remember I missed the game cause I had to work. I also was surprised that Cleveland played Miami that tough and the game was that close. Ah, the good 'ol days - when Miami actually won games they were supposed to.

    Two bits of trivia about this game--

    1) This would be the last time that the Dolphins would win a playoff game in the 1980s.

    2) This was the Dolphins' 8th win in a row. They had finished the 1985 season on a 7 game winning streak which started when Marino and the Fins beat the Jets in the Orange Bowl on a bomb to Mark Duper.

    Yes, everything fell apart in the conference championship, but this game was awesome (especially since I was 11).
