A meaningless preseason finale? Certainly not for Pat Devlin.
He may have saved his job with one heroic heave.
Devlin connected with Marvin McNutt on a 56-yard touchdown bomb late in the fourth quarter, rallying the Dolphins past New Orleans 24-21 Thursday night.
McNutt, also vying for a roster spot, simply ran past the secondary on fourth-and-4, caught the sideline pass in stride and into the end zone.
Then on the ensuring two-point conversion, Devlin had no one open, so he tucked the ball and dove into the end zone. The conversion put Miami up three -- but there would be no overtime. De'Andre Presley sealed the game with an interception with less than a minute remaining.
Devlin finished 22 of 38 for 259 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Four of those completions went to McNutt, who had 99 yards and the score.
