The Miami Dolphins pulled off the best trick play of the NFL season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Facing fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line late in the second quarter, the Dolphins brought out their field goal unit.

But rather than line up for the field goal, Miami shifted four players wide to the right, and five others wide to the left, leaving just long snapper Taybor Pepper and punter/holder Matt Haack in the middle of the field with the ball before the snap.

The Eagles unit did their best to respond, matching the Dolphins' numbers at the ball and overloading the left side, apparently in anticipation of a screen pass.

Haack then took the snap, and after feinting a run to the left and forcing the Eagles defense to crash on him, shoveled a pass to kicker Jason Sanders, who had shrugged off a block and slipped into the end zone completely unmarked.

Touchdown Dolphins.

On Twitter, fans were in awe of the Dolphins trickery, hailing it as one of the best plays of the year.

The Miami Dolphins have been playing through a lost season for basically the entire year, but even with the team's front office waiting for 2020 , the players and coaches on the field are clearly still in it to win it.
