There may not have been one more singular impactful play than what Deonte Harty was able to do in the third quarter. At this point of the game, the Bills were down 14-7 and had to punt their opening drive of the second half.
Then on their next drive, Josh Allen would have a fumble just outside of the red zone and the Bills would have their third drive of the night that realistically should have ended in points but they came away with none.
The defense responded though and would force the Dolphins to punt. It would be a deep punt by Jake Bailey that backed Harty all the way up to the four yard line. Deonte Harty would end up taking it 96 yards for a touchdown and it would set a franchise record for the longest punt return, surpassing Keith Moody's 91-yard return in 1977.
Deonte Harty has not made the impact many expected when he was signed as a free agent on offense. However, he was an excellent punt returner and he showed that on Sunday night.
