The Miami Dolphins had a historic showing on offense yesterday against the Denver Broncos. Finishing with a final score of 70-20. The Dolphins became the fourth team in NFL history to score 70 points and the first one since 1966.
There was lots of scoring to go around for the Dolphins on Sunday. Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill wasted no time getting the scoring started. They connected on a 54-yard touchdown within the first three minutes of the game to make it 7-0. Hill finished the game with nine receptions for 157 yards and the one touchdown.
Tua finished 23/26, passing for 309 yards and four touchdowns. He finished with a passer rating of 155.8. Tua so far this season leads all starting quarterbacks in average yards per attempted throws and is second only to Kirk Cousins in passing yards and touchdowns.
The team also got a near immaculate performance from their running back room. The newest addition to the RB room, rookie De’Von Achane, finished with 18 carries going for 203 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He added four catches for 30 yards two touchdowns receiving. However, not to be outdone was his running back partner, Raheem Mostert. He finished with 13 carries for 84 yards and three touchdowns rushing as well as seven receptions for 30 yards and one touchdown through the air.

Defense corrals the Broncos
The defense was also instrumental in the victory as well, forcing three turnovers. Two of the turnovers came from forced fumbles from Jevon Holland and the third coming courtesy of an interception from Emmanuel Ogbah.
The Dolphins don’t have time to celebrate this victory too much. Next Sunday, they travel to Buffalo to face the Bills.
