-- Danny Amendola was just as awed as everyone else by the Dolphins final play against the Patriots on Sunday, dubbed the Miami Miracle, and said what his teammates did against his former team is a new one for him.

“I’ve never seen anything like that in my entire life,” Amendola said after the game. “It was f—— crazy.”

Amendola also caught up with his former teammates prior to the game.

Amendola finished the game with just one catch for 10 yards but seemed happy with the stunning win.

-- Kareem Hunt has reportedly entered a treatment and counseling program with the help of the NFL after his multiple violent off-the-field incidents. 

He voluntarily sought out these programs as the NFL’s investigation into those incidents continues.

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said recently he was shocked by the video released of Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel. The Chiefs released Hunt after seeing the video. 

“We’d had some issues with Kareem not being truthful with what happened that night (in Cleveland) and we really felt in everybody’s interest we head in another direction,” Clark Hunt said on Sunday.

“I don’t think we were necessarily trying to make a statement,” Clark Hunt said or releasing Kareem. “We just felt like the best thing for the Kansas City Chiefs moving forward was to part ways with Kareem … When anybody comes to the Chiefs organization, part of what we expect of them is they’re going to be good citizens. We want them to give back, but really the first step for a young player is learning how to conduct themselves not only on the field but off the field.”

Hunt is now a free agent after no one claimed him off waivers but he was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List while the league investigates.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I did trip a little bit, but that is football. That is why they say it is a game of inches. A game of a split-second here and there. That gave me a lesson that shows that that is true in the game of football.” -- Rob Gronkowski, on the final play of the Patriots’ loss to the Dolphins on Sunday
