KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Even negative temperatures couldn’t stop the Miami Dolphins‘ trademark play.
Early in the second quarter of Saturday night’s AFC wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa connected with wide receiver Tyreek Hill for a 53-yard touchdown.

The play marked Tagovailoa’s first career playoff touchdown pass.
Miami opened its drive with a swing pass to a motioning Hill for 9 yards, then Tagovailoa found a streaking Hill on a pass that traveled 43.5 air yards, per Next Gen Stats. Hill tracked the ball down, despite the swirling wind altering its course, and shook off pass interference from All-Pro cornerback Trent McDuffie before swerving his way into the end zone.
The scoring drive was a much-needed momentum boost for a Dolphins offense that had mustered just 41 total yards in its first two series.
