What's Lincoln Thinkin': Top 10 Memorable Moments from Dolphins Season
#10. Reshad's Game-Clinching INT - The best play of the season for the Dolphins, came in Week 6. Reshad Jones, a Georgia native, and the Fins only Pro Bowler, picked off Matt Ryan with 47 seconds to go, as the Fins improved to 3-2.
#9. Maualuga Arrested - The Dolphins were better at stopping the run this season, in part because of free agent signing Rey Maualuga. But the linebacker was arrested in November on a misdemeanor battery charge, and the Fins cut him the next day.
#8. Fins beat Pats on MNF - As much as the Dolphins struggled this season, they still found a way to beat the Patriots for the fourth time in the last 5 years in Miami. After three embarrassing losses in primetime, the Fins saved face on Monday Night Football.
#7. Drake's Helmet Throw - No in-game moment is more fitting of the Dolphins season, then Jarvis Landry's touchdown Sunday. Both he and Kenyan Drake were thrown out after a skirmish with the Bills. Drake tossed his helmet, and this may be the last image of Juice in a Fins uniform.
#6. Center of Anthem Controversy - The Dolphins took center stage in the the NFL's National Anthem controversy, as a trio of Fins' players either knelt, or stayed in the locker room during the Star-Spangled Banner.
#5. Timmons Goes AWOL - Before the Fins first game, their biggest offseason acquisition left the team hotel, with no warning. Lawrence Timmons was found at the Los Angeles airport. We still don't really know what that was all about.
#4. Ajayi Traded - To shake up his team, Adam Gase dealt the team's leading rusher at the trade deadline. Jay Ajayi was a malcontent, but he was a huge piece of the team in 2016. While the Fins didn't miss his production, the move did not lead to more wins.
#3. The Sniffing Coach - A viral video surfaced of offensive line coach Chris Foerster sniffing a white powdery substance inside a Dolphins' meeting room. Foerster was fired, and the Dolphins organization became the butt of jokes across the country.
#2. Cutler Signed - The Dolphins gave a big name quarterback a big time paycheck. All that led to was big-time disappointment.
#1. Tannehill Goes Down - After all the drama that unfurled in 2017, the season will be defined by the moment that occurred on the third day of training camp. When the starting quarterback went down, and the Fins hopes of a successful season went down with it.
