Dolphins OL Robert Hunt makes play of the night on TNF and the internet is loving it

It may not have counted, but Hunt’s non-catch and non-TD run is an instant classic.

Monday update: It might not go into the Louvre, but Hunt’s non-catch and touchdown will be immortalized in the Dolphins facilities:

You can watch him here in slow motion to help you savor his greatness even longer.

Will Hunt be enshrined in the Sistine Chapel?

Or will he be the new logo for the National Football League? Only time will tell.

The Dolphins and Ravens on Thursday Night Football has been a slog, but an offensive lineman by the name of Robert Hunt made it worth our trouble, as he made the play of the night in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for Hunt and the Dolphins, the play was illegal.

Tua Tagovailoa had defenders on him in a second, so he had to get rid of the ball quickly. Hunt made a nice catch, which was an illegal touch since he wasn’t an eligible receiver and he should have tried to get out of the way so Myles Gaskin might grab it, but I digress. After the catch, Hunt makes a great cut and shows tremendous speed for a man of such mountainous proportions. He then heads for the goal-line and despite a great tackle, Hunt reaches out and crosses the line for a touchdown. A touchdown that will only count in ours and Hunt’s dreams.
