The Dolphins impressed in week one, overall. The pressure from the defense was Miami’s most significant asset. Despite some arrant throws from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, he was still able to complete 69.7% of his passes with 270 passing yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.
The Fins defense collected two sacks, four tackles for loss and two forced fumbles and recovered them both. The defense also recorded one interception.
Another star in Miami, Tyreek Hill, played well in his debut game for the Dolphins with eight receptions and 94 receiving yards. Hill has proved to be an exceptional route runner, so expect his targets to only increase as the season goes on.
However, the touchdown from Tagovailoa was thrown to wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. Waddle also had a solid game, having four receptions on five targets for 69 yards.
