The Miami Dolphins have done the impossible on Monday Night Football—forced the New Orleans Saints to punt the football. The Saints drove down the field and scored on the first drive of the game, but Miami actually forced the Saints to punt on their second drive.
As Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com points out, it’s the first time the Saints have been forced to punt since the second quarter during the team’s Week 3 contest against the Arizona Cardinals:
This is the Saints' first punt since the second quarter vs. Arizona.

Take a moment to appreciate that. The Saints offense is so great it has not had to punt for over a half of football. When an offense is playing that well it can be impossible to stop. The Cardinals found that out the hard way last week, but it appears the Dolphins at least stand a better chance.
Credit to the Dolphins, but we’re just getting started from New Orleans.
