It's unfortunate that this play happened against the Eagles, because otherwise we'd say it's the guaranteed Play of the Year.

The Dolphins, at 2-9 with absolutely nothing to lose, called a trick play for the ages in the second quarter on Sunday afternoon.

Then, a bit of chaos. Watch below. That's Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders on the reception. 

Should Doug Pederson have called timeout as soon as he saw that formation? Yes, almost certainly. Instead, the extra point give the Dolphins -- maybe the worst team in football -- a 14-13 lead. (Don't worry, the Eagles immediately drove back down the field to carry the lead into halftime.)
