Welcome to the latest installment of Extra Mustard’s Thursday Night Football drinking game. Week 8 presents the previously hapless Miami Dolphins heading north to take on the New England Patriots.
Nothing screams primetime football like new Dolphins coach Dan Campbell trying to match wits with Bill Belichick. Miami hasn’t won in New England since September 2008, or before Barack Obama was elected president. All it took for the Dolphins to win was to completely change their entire offense and unveil the Wildcat formation.
So yeah, don’t expect this game to be exciting. Fortunately, our drinking game is here to keep things interesting.
If Bill Belichick is wearing...
... a blue hoodie: drink beer
... a grey hoodie: drink whiskey
... a hoodie with the sleeves cut off: drink cocktails
.... a windbreaker/raincoat: drink wine
