Holland's touchdown was the first Hail Mary returned for a touchdown since 2006, marking a historic achievement in the world of football.
Heading into halftime, with the Dolphins set to receive the ball in the second half, Holland didn't just aim to stop the pass – he wanted to score and create a double-scoring opportunity.
Despite some interceptions by Dolphins' quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, Holland's incredible 99-yard run effectively sealed the game, as the Jets struggled to score for the rest of the match.
Holland's touchdown wasn't a solo effort. He received crucial blocks from teammates Christian Wilkins, Bradley Chubb, and Jerome Baker, showcasing the importance of teamwork.

Even Jets players were surprised by the turn of events, with running back Breece Hall expressing astonishment at the decision not to kneel down before halftime.
