Miami Dolphins Memorable Week 1 Games:
There were a total of 34 points scored in the fourth quarter of the matchup between the Dolphins and Titans in Week 1 of the 2018 season, and that still wasn’t the story of the day.
A year after Hurricane Irma delayed their season kickoff, the Dolphins dealt with yet another one of Mother Nature’s mood swings as lightning caused two separate delays in-game action. The total time elapsed for the stoppages was 3 hours and 59 minutes, making it the longest game in NFL history by almost a full two hours.
The storm seemed to energize two teams that appeared to be somewhat asleep for the first 45 minutes of action. The score was 10-3 at the end of the third quarter in favor of the Dolphins, but there were a total of 34 points scored in the final frame, ending an exhausting day with on-field fireworks.
A Jakeem Grant kickoff return and a Ryan Tannehill 75-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills highlighted the explosive fourth quarter for Miami, as the two teams exchanged big plays in what ended up being a see-saw battle. If you were still tuned in after all of those hours of delays, you were treated to a solid Week 1 contest.
Just another September in South Florida.
