The Miami Dolphins have made five appearances in Thanksgiving Day games on the home turf of the Dallas Cowboys. The most notorious contest was the "snow game" on Thursday, November 25, 1993, when the Cowboys apparently had held onto a 14-13 lead by blocking a Miami field goal in the final seconds. But the Dolphins gained second life when hard-luck Dallas defensive tackle Leon Lett touched the ball and made it live, enabling the Dolphins to recover it. Miami placekicker Pete Stoyanovich then kicked a 19-yard field goal, giving the Dolphins an unforgettable 16-14 win. Miami has a 3-and-2 record in the holiday contests. Here are the results (Miami victories in bold):

  • Nov. 22, 1973 -- Miami 14, Dallas 7 (at Texas Stadium).
  • Nov. 25, 1993 -- Miami 16, Dallas 14 (at Texas Stadium).
  • Nov. 25, 1999 -- Dallas 20, Miami 0 (at Texas Stadium).
  • Nov. 27, 2003 -- Miami 40, Dallas 21 (at Texas Stadium).
  • Nov. 24, 2011 -- Dallas 20, Miami 19 (at Cowboys Stadium).
