Miami Dolphins complete pass to two players on one very lucky play vs Texans

The Miami Dolphins may have lost on Thursday night against the Houston Texans, but they did manage to create one of the most miraculous plays in NFL history.

The Dolphins lost 42-23 in their Week Eight contest against the Texans last night as they were unable to stop Deshaun Watson, who finished the night with five passing touchdowns.

However, while Houston's offense was on fire, Miami's own offense produced highlight-reel worthy plays, and one left many NFL fans scratching their heads wondering how on earth it happened.

With just over three minutes to go in the third quarter, the Dolphins had possession of the ball on their 24-yard line when Brock Osweiler took the snap and rolled to his left to avoid the pressure from the Texans' defense.

The quarterback then threw the ball downfield towards Jakeem Grant, who initially caught the ball, but then it was knocked out of his hands, off the helmet of a Texans defender, and further downfield towards DeVante Parker, completing a 46-yard play.

Many NFL fans reacted to the crazy play on Twitter, with some comparing it to the Pittsburgh Steelers' Immaculate Reception play during the 1972 AFC Divisional Round.

Others stated how it reminded them of ridiculous glitches they would find while playing Madden NFL 19.

Osweiler finished the night completing 21 of his 37 attempts for 241 yards and an interception. Danny Amendola scored the only passing touchdown of the game for the Dolphins on a 28-yard trick play to Kenyan Drake.

However, it's clear that Miami might need Ryan Tannehill to return from injury soon at quarterback soon if they wish to secure a playoff position this season, as he is currently out of action with a shoulder injury.

Parker ended the game with six catches for 134 yards on nine targets, with 46 of those 134 yards coming on this one play.

Unfortunately for the Dolphins, they had no further luck on this drive, as they were only able to score a field goal by the end of it.

The loss means Miami's record now stands at 4-4, and their next game is a home contest against a divisional rival in the New York Jets.
