Dolphins, Jets make spectacular comeback in Week 2

The two AFC East teams were responsible for two comebacks early in Week 2 at ages over the two AFC North teams.

Let’s see how each team did it.

Dolphins come back from 21 down

Tua Tagovailoa had 469 yards and six touchdowns, four of them during an impressive fourth quarter, as the Miami Dolphins recovered from a 21-point deficit to beat Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to a 42-point lead on Sunday. I went down at 38.

Tagovailoa hit Jaylen Waddle for a 14-second 7-yard touchdown pass to put Miami (2-0) trailing 35-14 with less than 13 minutes remaining.

Tyreek Hill made touchdown catches for 48 and 60 yards during that rally, the latter tying the game at 5:19.

Justin Tucker nailed a 51-yard field goal to give Baltimore the lead with 2:18 remaining, but the Miami offense took too long.

The Dolphins overcame a superb performance from Jackson, who threw three touchdown passes in the first half and a 79-yard TD run in the third to give Baltimore a 21-point lead. Jackson threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns.

The Ravens were in position for Jackson to throw a desperate pass at the last minute, but it was imperfect.

Tagovailoa’s two interceptions in the first half more than made up for it. Waddle had 11 catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns, while Hill had 11 grabs and two touchdowns for 190 yards.

Devin DuVernay returned the first kickoff for a touchdown and the Ravens didn’t trail until the final seconds.

Had it not been for Miami’s fumble near the goal line, he would have scored a TD on all four offensive possessions in the first half.

The Dolphins failed to replicate the exceptional defensive effort one season ago that wreaked havoc on the Baltimore offense in the Blitz. The Ravens lost his lowest-scoring game of the season, 22-10.

Jackson put the Ravens up 14-7 with a short pass over the middle that Rashod Bateman turned into a 75-yard touchdown. Late in the second quarter, he threw a 1-yard TD to Mark Andrews and a 12-yard TD to DeMarcus Robinson.

Then Jackson’s most spectacular play came near the end of the third set, when he faked a handoff, going through a big hole in the middle and past Miami’s secondary. It was the longest run of any of the 100, with over 100 yards rushing. This is his 11th record. He previously shared the quarterback mark with Michael Vick, who had his 10th of his 100-yard game on the ground.

Jackson became the first quarterback in NFL history to have both a touchdown pass and a touchdown run of at least 75 yards in the same game. He finished with 119 yards on nine carries.

After catching two touchdown passes in the season opener against the New York Jets, DuVernay showed why he was an All-Pro returner by scoring for 103 yards on kickoff. Tagovailoa pushed the Dolphins into Baltimore territory, but Marcus Williams displayed remarkable concentration to produce a turnover. He jumped in front of Hill to break the pass and, while lying on the ground, reached out to catch the falling ball before it hit the ground.

The Ravens drove to the 1-yard line, but after a third-down touchdown run by Jackson was overturned in a replay, the Baltimore quarterback lost control of the ball in what appeared to be a quarterback sneak attempt. I was.

Miami drove 94 yards and tied at 7 on Tagovailoa’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Waddle.

Tagovailoa’s deep pass was picked off by Williams again as the Ravens led 21-7, giving Baltimore another chance to score before halftime.

Tagovailoa threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki to make it 28-14 in the third and his 2-yard pass to River Kracraft in the fourth to make it 35-21.

Vintage Flacco Leads Jets to Victory

Joe Flacco’s 15-yard touchdown pass to rookie Garrett Wilson with 22 seconds left gave the New York Jets two touches in the final two minutes in a 31-30 win over the Cleveland Browns. took the down lead.

In the third and tenth, Flacco, who had four TD passes, found streaking Wilson down the middle. The 10th overall pick dropped an important pass and the Browns (1-1) extended their lead.

Nick Chubb’s third rushing TD put Cleveland ahead by 13 with 1:55 remaining. But rookie kicker Cade Yorke, who nailed a 58-yard field goal in the final seconds to beat Carolina last week, pushed his extra point right.

Miss is back to haunt the Browns.

Flacco hit Corey Davis for a 66-yard TD to pull the Jets (1-1) within 6 of 30-24 with 1:22 remaining. New York recovered his kick onside and starter Zack Flacco, who stood in while his Wilson was recovering from a knee injury, saw him up to 15 with no timeouts before hooking up with Wilson. I took a drive.

Greg Zuerlein scored the decisive extra to make it 31-30.

Cleveland had one last chance, but Jacoby Brissett, who injured his left knee in the fourth inning, was intercepted by safety Ashtin Davis with six seconds remaining.

Flacco improved to 18-3 in his career against the Browns. This is the 37-year-old’s most wins against any team as a QB. Flacco had 307 yards and he had 26 of 44 yards.

It was a demoralizing loss for the Browns, who were on the verge of going 2-0 for the first time since 1993 when Bill Belichick coached them.

Chubb scored on runs of 4, 7 and 12 yards.

Brissett — started while Deshawn Watson was suspended for 11 games in the NFL for sexual misconduct allegations — threw a TD pass to Amari Cooper, going 22-of-27 for 229 yards .

Wilson recorded eight catches for 102 yards.
