Dolphins O-lineman's incredible non-TD sends Twitter into frenzy

Patriots

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Robert Hunt made the play of the game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

And it didn't even count.

On a third-and-goal early in the fourth quarter, the Dolphins dialed up a screen pass for running back Myles Gaskin. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa lofted the ball in Gaskins' direction despite there being two Ravens defenders in the area.

The pass was completed to a Dolphin who took it to the house, but it wasn't Gaskin.

That's 6-foot-6, 327-pound right guard Robert Hunt who caught the errant pass in stride, immediately thought 'end zone,' juked one defender and impressively extended the ball over the goal line.

Unfortunately, Hunt was flagged for illegal touching since he was an ineligible receiver and the touchdown was called back.

Perhaps the 2020 second-round pick convinced head coach Brian Flores and Miami's offensive staff to call his number on a trick play in the future though.

While it didn't count, NFL Twitter still couldn't get enough of the highlight:

After Hunt's play, the Dolphins had to settle for a field goal and extended their lead to 9-3. Miami went on to upset Baltimore 22-10.
