The 1999 Miami Dolphins season was the team's 34th campaign, and 30th in the National Football League. It was the final season for Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino. Although they made the second wild card spot with a 9–7 record, and managed to upset the Seattle Seahawks 20-17 in the Wild Card Game, they were humiliated by the Jacksonville Jaguars 62–7 in the Divisional round, the most lopsided playoff game of the Super Bowl era.

The Dolphins reached the midway point of the 1999 season with a 7–1 record, but in the second half of the year, the team struggled, finishing only 2–6, and backing their way into the playoffs with the AFC's last wild-card slot.[1]

AFC Wild Card Game[edit]

Dolphins 3 0 10 7 20
Seahawks 7 3 7 0 17

at The Kingdome, Seattle, Washington

The Seattle Seahawks played host to their first playoff game since the 1984 Season. The Seahawks were dominated by the Dolphins defense, who held them to only 171 yards, with just 32 in the second half, and sacked Seahawks quarterback Jon Kitna six times, three by Trace Armstrong. Although Seattle jumped out to a 17–10 lead in the 3rd quarter, the Dolphins would rally back behind quarterback Dan Marino, who threw for 196 yards and a touchdown, leading his team to their first road playoff win since 1972 in what ultimately proved to be the final game played at The Kingdome (the Seahawks moved into Husky Stadium for the 2000 season) and the final win of Marino's career.

Dolphins 0 7 0 0 7
Jaguars 24 17 14 7 62

at ALLTEL Stadium, Jacksonville, Florida

The Jacksonville Jaguars shredded their in-state rivals the Dolphins with 520 total offensive yards in what became Miami quarterback Dan Marino's last game in the NFL and the most lopsided postseason contest since the Chicago Bears defeated the Redskins 73–0 in the 1940 NFL championship game. Their defense forced seven turnovers and held the Dolphins to 131 total yards. Marino was held to just 11 of 25 completions for 95 yards and 1 touchdown, with 2 interceptions and a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in his final game. Marino retired shortly after the season ended.

This was also Jimmy Johnson's final game as an NFL head coach; Johnson resigned the day after the game.
