EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa broke a tie game Sunday against the New York Jets with a 65-yard touchdown pass to Mack Hollins.
The play gave Miami a 14-7 lead midway through the third quarter.
On second-and-1, Tagovailoa evaded the Jets’ pass rush and unloaded a pass to a wide open Hollins, traveling 53.1 air yards per NFL Next Gen Stats. Both the air yards and the total yards on the play were career-highs for Tagovailoa.
It also marked the longest play of Hollins’ career, as he is tied for the team lead with three touchdown receptions this season — surpassing his total from his previous three NFL seasons.
The touchdown broke a streak of five straight scoreless drives for the Dolphins after Jaylen Waddle scored on the team’s opening possession.
Jets cornerback Michael Carter lined up over Hollins before the play but blitzed. Cornerback Isaiah Dunn and safety Elijah Riley both covered Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson, leaving a streaking Hollins wide open down the sideline.
