Suspended for almost two hours in the first half, and then another two-plus hours in the third quarter, the contest lasted for a staggering total of seven hours and eight minutes.
The incident occurred during the long weather delay, as a young boy, who is reportedly 10 years old, ran onto the almost empty field in what seemed to be an attempt to escape the boredom and disappointment that comes from attending a football game that lasts eight hours. Jakeem Grant scored on a 102-yard kickoff return, Stills caught a 75-yard touchdown pass and Jones returned his second interception of the game 54 yards. The Dolphins ultimately emerged victorious in a 27-20 game.
Mariota finished 9-of-16 passing for 103 yards and two interceptions.
"I love the way we responded, the way we were able to overcome the delays, to come out with energy after sitting around", Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to 3½ minutes.More news: Tesla shares fall after Elon Musk smokes weed, drinks whisky during interview

While a odd and long day, the Dolphins get the 2018 season off on the right foot. About 10,000 fans remained at the finish. "I felt we handled it well, but in the end we didn't do enough to win the game". "I was just trying to make him aware of it. The front seven played well as they got after the quarterbacks and I was back there doing my job".
Titans: Adoree Jackson hurt his shoulder on a 26-yard punt return in the third quarter. Lewan was removed from the game following the play. Hopefully, he was allowed to watch the game and maybe even given a jersey for keeping fans entertained while they waited.
Multiple Titans players took exception to the hit, which left Lewan face down on the turf and motionless for several seconds.
