Coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell switched to the quick-hitting route after Miami called a timeout with 5 seconds remaining in a tie game Sunday in London.
Six weeks into the NFL season and each conference has only six teams with a winning record.

Tagovailoa returns to his starting role Sunday when the Dolphins play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, after missing most of the last four games — all of them Miami losses — with fractured ribs.
