His team may have lost on Sunday, but Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant had a day he’ll never forget, as he ran the length of the field to score his first touchdown of the season.
The wideout couldn’t prevent Miami losing 37-20 to the Buffalo Bills to end their two-game winning streak, but he managed to return a kickoff for 101 yards in the second quarter at Hard Rock Stadium.
Sunday’s moment of brilliance was the fourth career kick return that Grant has returned all the way to the house, to go with his two punt return touchdowns.
With his 101-yard KR-TD today, @MiamiDolphins WR Jakeem Grant (@_TheDreamIsHere) became the fourth player with at least two punt return TDs of 70+ yards and two kickoff return TDs of 100+ yards in a player's first four seasons in @NFL history. #NFL100 #BUFvsMIA pic.twitter.com/KqjU2BZdEz— NFL345 (@NFL345) November 17, 2019
The Fins’ receiver, who’s become a real asset on special teams, is the fourth player in NFL history to have two punt returns for touchdowns of 70 or more yards and two kickoff returns of 100 yards or more in his first four seasons in the league.
He also scored a seven-yard touchdown in the final quarter of the Bills loss, but it was his opening effort that caught the headlines and had Dolphin fans out of their seats.
