  • Touchdown was the second of Delmas' six-year career, the first occurred on Dec. 20, 2009 as a member of the Detroit Lions when he picked off a Kurt Warner pass and returned it 101 yards for a score.

Reshad Jones

  • recorded his first sack of the season in the third quarter for a loss of eight yards. He has now recorded 6.5 sacks in his career, tied for the second-most sacks among a defensive back in franchise history (Patrick Surtain).

Team stats and milestones

  • For the second time in 2014, the Dolphins scored an offensive (touchdown pass from QB Ryan Tannehill to WR Rishard Matthews) and defensive touchdown (S Louis Delmas and CB Brent Grimes interception returns for touchdowns) in the same game. The feat was last accomplished in London against the Raiders in the Dolphins 38-14 victory on September 28, 2014.
  • The last time Miami recorded an interception and returned it for a touchdown was when CB Brent Grimes recorded one and returned in 94 yards vs. Cincinnati on Oct. 31, 2013.
  • The last time a player recorded an interception and a fumble recovery in the same game (Louis Delmas) was S Reshad Jones when he recorded an interception and two fumble recoveries vs. Buffalo on Dec. 23, 2012.
  • With S Louis Delmas' 81-yard interception return for a touchdown and CB Brent Grimes' 22-yard interception returned for a touchdown, this is the fifth time in team history that the Dolphins have returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a game. The last time was Dec. 6, 1998, at Oakland when LBs Zach Thomas (1 yard) and Robert Jones (14 yards) returned interceptions for touchdowns.
  • The 50-yard reception by Mike Wallace was the team's longest play from scrimmage this season.
