When Tyreek Hill was traded to the Miami Dolphins this off season, many fans and analysts figured he would struggle. After all, he was going from catching passes from former MVP and Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City to now having unproven quarterback Tua Tagovailoa slinging him the ball.
Throughout the summer, questions arose about Tua’s accuracy and how he would gel with Tyreek, especially with the deep ball. Although it is only two weeks into the season, Tagovailoa has silenced the critics for now.
On Sunday, Tagovailoa and his top two receivers, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, led a ferocious fourth quarter comeback in Baltimore, outscoring the Ravens 28-3 in the final frame for the 42-38 victory. The trio all put up massive numbers in the come-from-behind victory.
Tua went 36 for 50 with 469 passing yards to go along with six passing touchdowns. Hill caught 11 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns, while Waddle also hauled in 11 catches for 171 yards and a pair of touchdowns as well.
After the game, Cheetah had a message for all the Tua haters out there.
With new head coach Mike McDaniel at the helm and a revamped offense, the Miami Dolphins appear to be a real contender this season. A tough test awaits the Dolphins in week three as their AFC East rival Buffalo Bills come to town. Miami will be seeking its first 3-0 start since 2018.
