Miami Dolphins: Salvon Ahmed scores 2-point conversion on hook and lateral vs. Patriots

Palm Beach Post

Tua Tagovailoa shook off a screaming pass rusher, took off from the 3-yard line and dragged a Patriots defender into the end zone to give the Miami Dolphins a fourth-quarter lead.

But that wasn't the play that has people buzzing.

That came on the ensuing 2-point conversion, when the Dolphins secured a 15-9 lead with about 12 minutes remaining on a hook and lateral.

Isaiah Ford was split out wide to the left with another receiver. Tua threw it quickly on what appeared to be a bubble screen.

But running back Salvon Ahmed came out from the backfield and took a pitch from Ford, running behind the blocks for an easy and surprising score.

It was Ahmed's second trip in the end zone, after he punched in the Dolphins' first score of the game from a yard out on Miami's first possession of the third quarter. He is over 100 yards rushing for the game.

The play was a good excuse to reminisce to the most famous hook and lateral in recent memory: Boise State's bold play late in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl to tie heavily favored Oklahoma.
