Dolphins, Jets, & Cardinals Pull Off Remarkable Comebacks In Week 2 Of The NFL

Dolphins Comeback From 21 Down

Miami Dolphins Quarterback, Tua Tagovalioa ended the game with 469 passing yards and six touchdowns, which four of those touchdowns came just in the fourth quarter.

Tua Tagovalioa would find his speedy receiver, Tyreek Hill on a 48-yard touchdown and a 60-yard touchdown on back-to-back drives and that would tie the game with 5:19 to play. The Baltimore Ravens tried to march down the field but would be stopped in field goal range. Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker then nailed a 51-yard field goal with 2:18 left in the game to put his team ahead. However, that was too much time for Miami’s offense. Tua Tagovalioa would find his receiver, Jaylen Waddle, for a touchdown with 14 seconds, and that would not be enough time for the Baltimore Ravens to do anything and the Miami Dolphins would complete the incredible comeback.

The Miami Dolphins at one point trailed in this game, 35-14 with under 13 minutes left, but the final score ended up being 42-38 Miami.

Vintage Joe Flacco Rallies Jets to Improbable Victory

The New York Jets would be down 30-17 to the Cleveland Browns with 2:00 minutes remaining in the game.

Jets quarterback Joe Flacco, who is currently filling in for Zach Wilson, hit Corey Davis for a 66-yard touchdown with 1:22 left to pull the Jets within six at 30-24. The Jets then attempted an onside kick because it was the last chance for them to get back into the game, they would end up recovering the kick, and Flacco and company drove down to the 15-yard line with no timeouts. Joe Flacco then fired in a 15-yard laser pass to Rookie Garret Wilson to tie up the game for the Jets. Kicker Greg Zuerlein then came out for the point after and nailed it to give the Jets the lead, 31-30.

The Cleveland Browns had one last chance of hope, but Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett was then intercepted by safety Ashtyn Davis with six seconds left.

Kyler Murray Leads his Cardinals to a Miraculous Comeback

The Arizona Cardinals trailed the Las Vegas Raiders 20-0 at halftime, things did not look good for the Cardinals until all of sudden in the 4th quarter, they came all the way back.

In the 4th, the Raiders had the ball while up 23-7 with 12:37 to go, however, the Cardinals forced a three-and-out. Murray marched his team down the field, and a huge 24-yard catch by Marquise Brown put the Cardinals at the 1-yard line. They then handed the ball to Darrell Williams and he would punch it into the endzone for the touchdown. The Cardinals then attempted a two-point conversion to cut it down to a one-possession score. But this two-point conversion ended up being one of the craziest we have seen in the last few years, according to Next-Gen stats, Murray scrambled around for a combined total of over 84 yards before running it in for the conversion and the play went for over 20 seconds!

The Cardinals then forced another Raiders punt and in the final 4:43, the Cardinals ran an 18-play, 73-yard drive that ended in a rushing touchdown by Murray as the game clock hit 0:00. But the Cardinals then needed a big two-point conversion to send the game to overtime, Murray ended up finding veteran A.J. Green in the back of the end zone to force overtime.

The Cardinals got the ball to start overtime but turned it over on downs and the Raiders looked prime to win the game. Raiders quarterback Derrek Carr fired a pass to receiver Hunter Renfrow, but a Cardinals defender would hit right on the ball and Renfrow fumbled, and Cardinals cornerback Byron Murphy Jr. scooped the ball up and ran it to the endzone for 59-yards. The Cardinals would win the game by a score of 29-23.
