This game is considered to be the most lopsided, postseason game since the Chicago Bears defeated the Redskins 73-0 in the 1940 NFL Championship. The Jacksonville defense would force seen turnovers and would hold the Dolphins to a measly 131 yards, while scoring 38 points in the first quarter, over 60 points total in the game, brining the Jags a win of 62-7.
The biggest play of the game came from Fred Taylor, who ran down the right sideline for 90 yards to the end zone for a touchdown. This was an NFL playoff record. Taylor would rush for over 135 yards in the game, total, with 18 carries.
Other notable stats from the game came from QB Mark Brunell, who played with braces on both knees and still completed 5 of 9 passes for 102 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jay Fielder took over for Brunell in the second quarter, completing 7 of 11 completions for 72 yards with 2 touchdowns as well. Cornerback Aaron Beasley intercepted Dolphin QB Dan Marino’s first pass of the game, setting up a Jags field goal. The final touchdown was scored by Chris Howard off of an interception. Marino would retire after the game.
