Ronnie Brown had a career day in New England on Sunday at the Patriots’ expense. Brown had four rushing touchdowns and one passing touchdown, setting the Dolphins’ team record for most rushing touchdowns in a game while also tying the franchise individual single-game mark for most total touchdowns in a game.
Brown finished with 17 rushes for 113 yards and four scores, breaking a mark set 15 other times in franchise history. What makes Browns’ touchdowns unique is that three came on direct snaps from center, as the Dolphins employed a number of trick plays throughout the game.
“We finally put it in, and I think we caught them off guard a little bit with me back there playing quarterback,” said Brown.
The Dolphins’ individual single-game mark for total touchdowns in a game was previously set by Paul Warfield ( 12/15/73 vs. Detroit) and Mark Ingram (11/27/94 vs. NY Jets), who each had four receiving touchdowns.
