Mike Gesicki finishes huge day with incredible one-handed catch in win for Dolphins
With a 19-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Miami Dolphins won their seventh game of their last eight. The win built on the Dolphins’ 17-point win over the New York Jets last week, and former Penn State standout Mike Gesicki played a major role in the win.
Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa passed for 296 yards on the day, with 88 of those yards in the arms of Gesicki, including the first Miami touchdown on a five-yard touchdown pass.
But the highlight-reel play came on a 20-yard completion across the middle that quickly went viral on social media.

That one-handed snag is a thing of beauty and can accurately be described as jaw-dropping for the tight end.
Gesicki was a second-round draft pick by Miami in the 2018 NFL Draft, and in his rookie season, he caught 22 passes for 202 yards. The 2019 season saw Gesicki become a more consistent part of the Miami offense, catching 51 passes for 570 yards and five touchdowns.
