The measure of a good game for a quarterback is accumulating 300 yards passing. The Miami Dolphins have had some great defenses over the years but have they ever given up a 300 yard passing game to an opposing rookie quarterback? Yes, they have.
In 1970, the Dolphins would beat the Buffalo Bills 33-14 and in the process Bills’ rookie quarterback Dennis Shaw would go 24 of 32 for 348 yards and two touchdowns.
On January 2nd, 1994, Drew Bledsoe would lead the New England Patriots to a 33-27 win over the Dolphins in the last game of the season when he went 27 of 43 for 329 yards with four touchdowns.
The Dolphins would defeat the Indianapolis Colts 24-15 in 1998, but rookie Peyton Manning showed some of his promise as he went 21 of 37 for 302 yards and one touchdown.
On November 4, 2012, the Indianapolis Colts and their highly touted rookie quarterback Andrew Luck would go up against the Dolphins. Luck would finish the game with 30completions on 48 attempts for 433 yards and two touchdowns.
