There were no NFL records this time with the Miami Dolphins victory over the Oakland Raiders at Hard Rock Stadium. There was though an abundance of merciless heat and sun. The field temp was well over 100 degrees and without the slightest of breezes, you felt every degree of that hot temperature.
Walking into Hard Rock Stadium prior to the game felt different from other games. Maybe it was the Sunday Night Football vibe with their makeshift set sitting on the sidelines waiting for Mike Tirico, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth to occupy. Or it could be the number of fans dressed in black and as pirates waiting for the team to run onto the field for warmups so they can cheer passionately. Either way, there is no better way to end a Sunday than with a game featuring the Dolphins vs Raiders.
