The Tennessee Titans pulled off a stunning late-game comeback to defeat the Miami Dolphins 28-27 in a thrilling Week 14 matchup. Miami seemed poised to secure a fourth straight win and maintain their AFC East lead, but Tennessee fought back from a 14-point deficit in the final minutes to steal the victory.

The Dolphins struck first, with Zack Siler intercepting Will Lewis' pass for a touchdown and Jason Sanders adding the extra point to put Miami up 7-0 early. The Titans struggled to find their rhythm in the first quarter, but Derrick Henry's touchdown run in the second period brought them back into the game.

Nick Folk's field goal just before halftime gave Tennessee a narrow 10-7 lead. The third quarter was a defensive battle, with both teams trading field goals to make it 13-10 heading into the final period. That's when Miami seized control, with Rahim Mostert's two touchdown runs putting them up 27-13 with just four minutes remaining.

The effort and belief in yourself paid off

Mostert's second touchdown seemed to seal the Dolphins' victory, but the Titans weren't done yet. DeAndre Hopkins sparked the comeback with a touchdown reception, followed by a successful two-point conversion from Nick Westbrook.

With only 25 seconds left on the clock, Derrick Henry powered his way into the end zone for another touchdown, and Folk's conversion kick put the Titans ahead 28-27. The Dolphins were unable to respond, and Tennessee secured the improbable win.

Lewis completed 23 of 38 passes for 327 yards, with one touchdown and one interception for the Titans. Derrick Henry's 34 rushing yards and two touchdowns were crucial to the comeback, while DeAndre Hopkins chipped in 124 receiving yards and a touchdown.

For Miami, Tua Tagovailoa threw for 240 yards, but it was Rahim Mostert's 96 rushing yards and two touchdowns that powered their offense. However, their late-game collapse cost them their winning streak and the top spot in the AFC East.

The Titans will look to build on this momentum when they host the Houston Texans next week. Meanwhile, the Dolphins will try to bounce back against the New York Jets at home. The race for the AFC playoffs remains intense.
