Lightning strikes halt play in seven-hour National Football League game in Miami

The previous longest game since 1970 was a Bears overtime victory against the Ravens in 2013 that took 5 hours, 16 minutes.

The Dolphins and Titans were facing another lightning delay and needed to keep their energy up for the rest of the game.

"It was wild", said Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who completed 20-of-28 pass attempts for 230 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in his first start since the 2016 season.

When the game restarted a second time Sunday afternoon, it was four hours behind schedule and already the longest game in National Football League history. By the time it was over more than seven hours later, the late afternoon games were all in the books. On a first-and-10 play for the Titans, Blaine Gabbert hit Walker on a crossing route that went for a 15-yard gain.
