Before the start of the campaign, the Dolphins were seen as one of the clubs with the greatest growth and postseason possibilities. With only two weeks Miami has lived up to the hype and much of the success is due to Tyreek Hill.
In his second meeting as a member of the Dolphins, ‘Cheetah’ is already the NFL leader in receiving yards (284) and he’s coming off an 11-catch, 190-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Ravens.
Hill’s 28-year-old start to the campaign only confirms the confidence the WR has in Tua Tagovailoa. During the offseason, the West Alabama graduate began a campaign to recognize the QB as one of the most talented in history; the pin itself he leads the league in passing yards (739) and touchdowns (7).

With 15 games to go, only time will tell who finishes the campaign better. For Miami, its next litmus test will come in week 3, when they welcome the mighty Bills; for his part, the Chiefs will have a high caliber synod in week 4, when they play in Tampa Bay, a city and club that gives them bad memories.
