It was Allen’s 11th straight multiple touchdown-pass game against the Dolphins. It was the most by any player against an opponent all-time, including the postseason, according to ESPN Stats & Info and the Elias Sports Bureau. Marino had 10 straight multiple touchdown-pass games against the New York Jets.

Allen found tight end Knox for a 6-yard touchdown to go up 7-0 early. It was the fifth straight game with a touchdown catch for Knox. He joined Eric Moulds, Steve Johnson and Lee Evans for the most consecutive games of at least one receiving touchdown in team history, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

He would later find Beasley for a 6-yard touchdown pass to regain the lead. Then he would throw a dart to Davis on a 23-yard touchdown to get some cushion.

Allen needed to curtail the early turnovers to hold off Miami. Along with the two interceptions, he had a fumble that resulted in a scoop-and-score touchdown.
