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. That game lasted five hours, 16 minutes. "That's the backup quarterback's job description: to be ready at a moment's notice, to go in and help your team win the game".
"We'll see how it goes going forward", Gase said. He'll have more notice if he's in the lineup for Sunday's home opener against Houston.
The three-time Pro-Bowler was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter Sunday.
Ryan Tannehill returned to the field for the first time since 2016 and threw for two touchdown passes to Kenny Stills.
"I wasn't as sharp as I like to be", he said. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.
Jakeem Grant scored on a 102-yard kickoff return, Stills caught a 75-yard touchdown pass and Jones returned his second interception of the game 54 yards. "There are a lot of plays I wanted to have back".
The game was unremarkable prior to the delays, with both teams living up to their low preseason expectations in a dud of a matchup the Dolphins led 7-3 prior to play restarting for good with 6:47 left in the third quarter.
