    Insider information from the sideline tells me the play was supposed to be a fake thats why it was kinda weird if you watch the replay. Just so you guys know

    "Insider information?" Sounds more like opinion.

    it just looks like Sturgis saw that fields wasn't looking and went after the ball as soon as it was snapped. could be wrong but I don't see them going for a fake there when all they had to do was keep the offense on the field`

    So they can't even fake it properly. Sounds like practice is successful.

    Probably read that on Twitter.

    You have to be special to have one of those accounts from what I hear.

    Wow so much hostility towards information haha I would give you his title and stuff but that wouldn't be too smart on my part. I thought this was the dolphins forums and that information would be appreciated.. guess that VIP might be a good idea lol sheesh

    Miami will have a chance to step up on this next possession. A 3 and out is expected. They need to shock us.

    I believe you. If you watch that play again, the blocker on the far left side for Miami took off running as if he was running a route. A guy from NE picked up on it and had him covered.

    i thought it was going to be a fake or a really bad kick since Sturgis wasn't taking his steps back to line himself up.. he just lined up and kickers don't do that

    I actually ended up sitting with Brandon Fields sister and father.. They were pretty embarrassed when that happened.. They also told me he missed that day of practice this week, because his wife had their baby.. They we're really cool also!

    My first thoughts seeing Fields staring at the sideline during the play was a fake,maybe a coach was either signaling him or yelling at him.Remember Fields missed practiced due to a birth of a child and possibly a reason he wasn't ready for the fake field goal play.

    Pretty clear Dolphins were trying a fake on botched FG. Derrick Shelby and Jason Trusnik went out for passes from end spots.

    Sherman designed the play for Fields' facemask to score?

    Okay, this thread just got bumped to the first page not long after I asked about the fake in a different thread. Good info. It definitely looked like a fake and I was surprised the CBS crew never picked up on it, nor any of the postgame shows like Football Night in America.

    It's probably good that we didn't see it unfold because I doubt it would have worked.

    I saw this tweet which was just tweeted not too long ago and it confirmed what I thought which is that they were going with a fake FG and IMO the reason why Fields wasn't ready is he missed practice due to he may have been a little distracted after having a new born this week and the missing practice part

    Yep, when they cut away to the commercial, I rewound my DVR and watched that play again and clearly saw Shelby take off running (instead of blocking) from his left end spot. That said, a player from the Pats saw it and started running with him. I was also very surprised that the announcers didn't pick up on this...it clearly looked like a fake to me. You're right though...even if it was a clean snap, that play wasn't looking too promising for Miami.

    This looked like a fake and now it's confirmed along with the error going to Fields.I believe Fields signals for the snap and Denny prematurely esnapulated the ball.But they are giving Fields the error.Maybe Field didnt realize it was a silent quick snap?

    Stay correction: NFL now credits Denney fumble on botched fake FG attempt on Fields instead.

    I don't buy that it was a fake. Fields didn't practice all week - why run a fake with no reps during the week?
