The Dolphins then headed to their team plane, trying to shake off the shame of an 0-4 preseason, but they couldn't even get home on time.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the team's charter plane backed into another plane on the runway in Dallas, and the Fins had to take another plane home.
"It rocked the entire plane," Dolphins broadcaster Joe Rose, who was on the plane, said on his WQAM radio show Thursday morning. "It was totally crazy. I just couldn't believe it."
Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore said on Twitter that the team didn't get back home until after 8 a.m. on Thursday.
We can't wait to see this on the season finale of "Hard Knocks." According to Rose, the NFL Films crew was on the plane and shot the entire debacle.
