He said he couldn't feel his fingers or grip the ball well, and hinted he shouldn't have returned to the game.

The Dolphins and Titans were facing another lightning delay and needed to keep their energy up for the rest of the game.

The Dolphins-Titans game started at 1 PM ET... and just ended in Miami, over seven hours later.

We will have to see if Mariota goes back in again, or if Tennessee leaves this one in the hands of its backup Gabbert.

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. The touchdown toss was Tannehill's first since the 2016 season, due to multiple season-ending injuries over his previous two campaigns.

Miami's Jakeem Grant won the longest game with the longest play.

Hurricane Irma caused the postponement of the first game, forcing Miami to play 16 weeks in a row.

Gase was especially unhappy about a third-quarter brawl after defensive tackle Jordan Phillips stood over injured Titans tackle Taylor Lewan and appeared to taunt him following Jones' first interception. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to three minutes. The second delay occurred with 6:47 left in the third quarter and lasted 2 hours, 2 minutes. About 10,000 fans remained at the finish. "And I'm going, 'We're playing a game.' I think it was 5 o'clock".

Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones grabbed two interceptions, the second one thwarting a deep Titans drive that could have tied the score 24-24. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.
