Awful Dolphins play leads to first-of-its kind NFL safety
You don't see that every Sunday in the NFL.
In fact, you've never seen it before in the NFL.
In the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Miami Dolphins faced first and 10 from their own 1-yard line. An A.J. Cole Punt had pinned it deep.
Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett - for an injured Tua Tagovailoa - lined up in a shotgun. He took the snap and looked left at rookie receiver Jaylen Waddle, who stayed in the backcourt for a screen pass. Raiders cornerback Casey Hayward, Jr. sniffed it out.
He hit Waddle as soon as the ball came and drove him onto the lawn. The ball never left the end zone. Security, raider.
To be clear, this is a certainty on a completed pass without a fumble or offensive penalty in the end zone. According to the Pro Football Reference, this is the first time such a game has taken place in the NFL - at least one that registers on its database, which is thorough.
The raiders used to be the recipients of this type of calamity. Maybe everything really turns in the desert.
The Raiders made the most of the big game and brought the Dolphins into extra time, where they secured a 3-0 start with a 28:25 win.
This screen pass has not fooled anyone. (Chris Unger / Getty Images)
