Marino went down with an Achilles injury (I had just taken my son home from the hospital as he was 3 days old, and propped him up to watch the Fins/Browns game when it happened). The Dolphins were 9-2 at Thanksgiving only to lose their last 5 games. Winning with Pederson just went to show how good Don Shula was even as he was winding down a Hall of Fame career.

November 14, 1993: Dolphins beat Eagles 19-14, Shula wins #325http://www.thefinsiders.com/blog/2013/o ... able-games
In a November regular season game between Miami and Philadelphia, one of football’s most hallowed records fell. Legendary Dolphins head coach Don Shula recorded his 325th victory, the most ever by a coach in the National Football League. Shula toppled Chicago Bears legend George Halas’s mark of 324, and went on to finish with 347 career wins.
“It was one of those things where it was my rookie year, and to come from Penn State, playing with coach (Joe) Paterno and then being able to play for Coach Shula was just amazing. For him to break the all time record in my rookie season, that was special, especially since a lot of people didn’t know who the quarterback was with Doug Pederson being the quarterback on that day. So that was a lot of fun.”
