Dan Marino was an amazing quarterback who had some amazing games. A number of his best performances came in some great Miami Dolphins victories. There was one great performance by Marino though that it is hard to believe came in a loss.
In a September 1986 game against the New York Jets, it was a real shootout. Over the course of the game, Marino completed 30 pass of the 50 he attempted. He accumulated 448 yards during the game, and threw an astounding six touchdown passes. It wasn’t enough though as the Jets beat the Dolphins that day by the score of 51-45.
Some days you can play your best, put up an incredible performance, and still come up on the losing end.
