The Dolphins lose a 45-34 decision to the Raiders, but QB Dan Marino breaks the all- time NFL record for TD passes in a season with his 37th. His record-breaking touchdown pass, which came on a four-yard toss to Jimmy Cefalo in the first quarter, was the first of four on the day for Marino as he reached the 40-touchdown plateau. He also shatters Dolphin single-game records for most yards passing (470), most completions (35) and most attempts (57).[/size][/font]

Miami ends the regular season with the best record in the AFC (14-2) following a 28- 21 victory over Dallas. WR Mark Clayton catches three touchdown passes to give him 18 for the season as he eclipses the all-time NFL mark in that category. Dan Marino becomes the first-ever NFL quarterback to pass for over 5,000 yards in a season as he ends up with 5,084. The most prolific passing season in NFL history also consists of 48 touchdown passes, 564 attempts, 362 completions and only 17 interceptions for a franchise record passer rating of 108.9. Both Clayton (73-1,389) and WR Mark Duper (71-1,306) surpass prior Dolphin records for receptions and reception yardage in one season.[/size][/font]
