NFL Twitter simply was stunned by the missed call, and amazing connection between Allen and Brown.

Week 4 for the Miami Dolphins felt a lot like the first quarter of the 2020 season for the Dolphins as a whole. There was plenty of improvements from last year's lethargic team in the early portions of the 2019 season — but overall this team's youth and inexperience proved to be too much as the Dolphins butted heads with a superior opponent. This is a team that has had to play two legitimate MVP candidates in the first four games of the season in Josh Allen and Russell Wilson — both of whom have quarterbacked their teams to undefeated 4-0 records.
