Caleb Sturgis was ready to kick a field goal for the Miami Dolphins when the long snapper snapped the ball right into Brandon Fields’ face. This is pretty much the worst thing that can happen to you as a holder. He wasn’t ready for the play. Sturgis ended up recovering the balls. FINS UP!

Despite missed FG, Dolphins still rave about Caleb Sturgis

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Caleb Sturgis' kick had the height, the distance and much of Sun Life Stadium fooled. Trailing 26-23 the Baltimore Ravens with 38 seconds left in regulation, the Miami Dolphins teed up a potential game-tying field goal for Sturgis.

Tough Loss Against Baltimore

In the aftermath of the heartbreaking 26-23 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at Sun Life Stadium, what exactly do we make of the 2013 Dolphins?
