Down by three touchdowns, no problem.
Tua Tagovailoa’s 7-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Waddle with 14 seconds left completed the incredible comeback after Miami trailed 35-14 with under 13 minutes remaining.
Tagovailoa threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns, four of which came during the fourth quarter, and the Dolphins rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat Lamar Jackson and the Ravens 42-38.
Dolphins improved to 2-0 under new coach Mike McDaniel after the largest comeback in franchise history.
Miami had 233 yards in the fourth quarter.
This was Tagovailoa’s first 400-yard passing game, and his six TDs tied a team record held by Bob Griese and Dan Marino.
Justin Tucker kicked a 51-yard field goal with 2:18 remaining to put Baltimore ahead, but that was far too much time for Miami’s offense, which the Ravens (1-1) didn’t come close to stopping in the final quarter.
The Dolphins overcame a spectacular performance by Jackson, who threw three first-half touchdown passes and gave Baltimore its 21-point lead with a 79-yard TD run in the third. Jackson threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns.
Jackson became the first quarterback in NFL history with a touchdown pass and a touchdown run of at least 75 yards in the same game. He finished with 119 yards on nine carries.
Jackson accounted for nearly 440 yards of offense for the Ravens.
I have watched Dolphins games for nearly 30 years; this is the most impressive comeback ever. It had its thrill, making it the most remarkable comeback in team history.
This performance by Tagovailoa silences his critics. The recognition of a brilliant game needs to be applauded. A franchise quarterback performance was played in this game in the second half.
Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle combined for 400 yards of offense and four touchdowns. Statistically, it is the best game played by a duo of Dolphins wide receivers since Mark Duper, and Mark Clayton are in the Dolphins’ ring of honor. Waddle was impressive in the first half. Hill, who battled cramps, ignited the dolphins in the second half. This blockbuster trade by the Dolphins to acquire Hill is coming to fruition.
