Zach Sieler’s role with Dolphins increased in 2022
By Ryan Gaydos
Zach Sieler, a defensive tackle for the Miami Dolphins, had to fulfill a promise he made to his wife Hannah after making a pivotal play in the third quarter of the team’s wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills.
Josh Allen, the quarterback for the Bills, fumbled the ball with about 14 minutes left in the third quarter after taking a significant hit. Sieler ran five more yards into the end zone after sprinting over to the bouncing ball and grabbing it.
Sieler’s score and Jason Sanders’ point-after try put Miami up 24-20. It was the Dolphins’ first lead of the game and completed a comeback after going down 17 points at the start of the second quarter.
Hannah Sieler was crying happy tears.
“I’m shaking and cry,” she wrote in the caption of a video posted to social media. “Omg. Are you kidding me. A WHOLE TOUCHDOWN.”
Hannah Sieler added in a tweet that her husband now owes her a game ball.
“ALL IM SAYING IS @zachsieler PROMISED ME I WOULD GET THE GAME BALL IF HE EVER SCORED A TOUCHDOWN” she wrote.
Zach Sieler is in his fifth season in the NFL. He was a seventh-round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 and the Dolphins signed him in December 2019.
His role with the Dolphins increased in 2022, starting 15 of the 17 games he appeared in. He recorded 3.5 sacks and 70 total tackles in that span. He can now add a postseason touchdown to his resume.
