Adjust Comment Print

Around 10,000 spectators remained at the finish of the Miami Dolphins' marathon win over Tennessee, and they were hardly fair weather fans. Jakeem Grant bottled those bolts of electricity on the fourth quarter return, answering a game-tying drive from the Titans, before the Dolphins added some insurance. This game took the longest game title from the Chicago Bears-Baltimore Ravens game on November 17, 2013, which lasted five hours, 16 minutes.

When the game restarted a second time Sunday afternoon, it was four hours behind schedule and already the longest game in National Football League history.

About four minutes later, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected with Kenny Stills on a deep pass for a 75-yard touchdown to extend Miami's lead to 24-10.

The Titans attempted to mount a comeback with a 94-yard touchdown return from Darius Jennings on the ensuing kickoff.

"I love the way we responded - the way we were able to overcome the delays, to come out with energy after sitting around", Tannehill said.

While a unusual and long day, the Dolphins get the 2018 season off on the right foot.

Gabbert drove the Titans 75 yards to make the score 10-10, but Grant needed only 13 seconds to break the tie, splitting the coverage untouched and racing into the clear near midfield.

"That's the job we have, to make sure we play through whatever situation", Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said. In 2017, he played 16 games and racked up 807 receiving yards to go with three touchdowns.
