Dion Sims CatchThe No. 9 moment of 2013 came early in Miami Dolphins season, as Ryan Tannnehill capped off a 75 yard drive with a one yard touchdown pass to tight end Dions Sims with 38 seconds remaining to lead the Miami Dolphins past the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 27-23.  The victory helped the Dolphins improve to 3-0 on the season.

A crowd of 70,660 ecstatic fans were on hand to witness the game winning drive, on which Tannehill completed nine of 12 passes for 69 yards, including go ahead the one yard touchdown to Sims. Sims’ spectacular one-handed catch in the back of the endzone was ever more so impressive considering the fact that Falcons’ linebacker Stephen Nichols was draped on his back.

The touchdown gave the Dolphins their first lead of the game, but it was all that they needed to secure the victory.  This early season, end of the game drama, is clearly worthy of the number nine most memorable of Sun Life Stadium in 2013.
