Dolphins Have Four Nominees For NFL Play Of The Year

Posted Jan 14, 2016

The Dolphins’ nominated plays were titled "Miller time"; "Jukin Jarvis for the TD"; "Landry copies Beckham’s one-handed style"; and "Parker pulls it out."

The NFL unveiled Thursday its 32 nominees for the best play of the year, and the Dolphins were well represented.

The Dolphins actually had more plays nominated than any team in the league with four — Jarvis Landry’s zig-zagging 50-yard touchdown reception against Houston; Lamar Miller’s 85-yard touchdown run in that same game; Landry’s acrobatic one-handed catch against Indianapolis; and DeVante Parker’s 46-yard juggling catch in the season finale against the New England Patriots.

Fans can vote for five of the nominees at and the winning play will be revealed during “NFL Honors” as the Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year the night before Super Bowl 50. The two-hour prime-time awards special will air nationally Feb. 6 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.

Tennessee is second with three plays nominated, while nine teams — Arizona, Baltimore, Carolina, Green Bay, Minnesota, New England, the New York Giants, St. Louis and Seattle — had two plays each.

Landry is one of three players with two plays among the nominees, along with Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker and, of course, close friend Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants.

The Dolphins’ nominated plays were titled “Miller time”; “Jukin Jarvis for the TD”; “Landry copies Beckham’s one-handed style”; and “Parker pulls it out.”

The Dolphins were the opponents for two of the nominated plays: New York Jets running back Chris Ivory’s touchdown run at MetLife Stadium, and Beckham’s toe-dragging touchdown catch in the Monday night game at Sun Life Stadium.
