Dolphins' Robert Hunt scores touchdown that doesn't count. Twitter called it play of the year

The Miami Dolphins had a host of bizarre plays Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

Tua Tagovailoa entered the game with a broken finger on his throwing in after Jacoby Brissett injured his knee, even though it seemed Brissett could have re-entered. Isaiah Ford, who had two catches all season coming into the night, put up the Dolphins' longest play of the season with a 52-yard catch late in the first half.

But nothing tops a play that didn't happen.

Early in the fourth quarter, Robert Hunt caught a screen pass and flipped over a defender, stretching across the goal line for an incredible touchdown.

The only problem: Hunt is an offensive lineman, and was an ineligible receiver.

The Dolphins ended up settling for a field goal on the play, but Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and the rest of the viewing audience called it the highlight of the night.
