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.

He throws too many picks, I believe he is gone.

Decent numbers and highlights for a 3rd string QB. But not nearly enough to make the FO consider trading Matt Moore.

What about McNutt? Did he just save his spot?

7 preseason receptions for 140 yards & a 12 yard rush. & personally think he has the skill set to be better but we saw less and less of him as preseason went on. He may not be picking up the system in practice or something
