Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Robert Hunt was the talk of Thursday Night Football.
With the Dolphins driving early in the fourth quarter, Tua Tagovailoa dropped back to pass as the Ravens’ pass rushers were coming toward him. It appeared the team was setting up for a screen and Tagovailoa was trying to get the ball to his running back.
Hunt got in the middle of the play and caught the ball. He showed off his athleticism by running towards the end zone before getting up-ended. Replay showed that he scored, but the guard didn’t report in as an eligible receiver and a penalty was called on the Dolphins. The touchdown was erased and Miami would eventually settle for a field goal on the drive.
It did not matter in the end as Hunt has esentially became a household name because of the play that did not count.
The team wasted no time in giving the play a tribute by putting it on an elevator in their facility.
The Dolphins would win the game 22-10.
