Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki made his presence known in the NFL Playoffs, breaking a major streak by the Buffalo Bills in the process, during Sunday afternoon’s AFC Wild Card contest.
With :36 remaining in the first half, Gesicki broke open in the back of the end zone, hauling in a touchdown pass from Dolphins third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson to tie the game at 17.
By reaching the end zone, Gesicki became the first tight end to catch a touchdown pass against Buffalo this season.

The Dolphins trailed the Bills 17-0, before storming back, largely on the heels of a pair of turnovers that Miami converted into 10 points in the waning moments of the opening frame.
By halftime, Gesicki had caught both of his targets for 15 yards and the score. This season, Gesicki caught 32 passes for 362 yards with five touchdowns, one score shy of his career-high set in 2020.
Chosen by the Dolphins in the second-round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Gesicki 129 passes for 1,481 yards with 15 touchdowns, while averaging 11.5 yards per reception during his time in a Nittany Lions uniform.
