Tyreek Hill declares Tua Tagovailoa as the best quarterback in the league

3 Min Read

The Miami Dolphins are now 6-3 on the season after getting past the Chicago Bears, 35-32, on Sunday.

Tua Tagovailoa went 21 of 30 and threw three touchdown passes against zero interceptions, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill gave him a very high compliment.

At Soldier Field in Chicago, the Fins showed everyone why they feel they’re legitimate Super Bowl contenders this year. Hill had a magnificent game himself, as he accumulated 143 yards and a touchdown, while his running mate Jaylen Waddle notched 85 yards and a touchdown of his own.

Hill’s big day put him well over 1,000 receiving yards on the season after just nine contests. He appears to be on his way to a career-best in that category, as his previous career-high was 1,479 yards during the 2018 season.

Miami trailed early, but it took control of the game in the second quarter, as a blocked punt led to a touchdown that put it up 21-10.

In order to get this victory, it would have to survive a massive effort by Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who threw three touchdown passes while running for 178 yards and an additional score.

His 178 rushing yards were the most ever in a single game by a quarterback, and it included a 61-yard run that led to a touchdown.

With a 6-3 record, the Dolphins are tied with the New York Jets for second place in the AFC East, and they’re just half a game behind the Buffalo Bills for first place in the division.

After his concussion scare a few weeks ago, Tagovailoa is continuing to have what appears to be a breakout season in year 3. He may not be the best in the game, as Hill insisted during his interview, but he may be a legitimate franchise signal-caller, the likes of which the Dolphins haven’t had since the days of Dan Marino.

For the first time in decades, they appear to have a team that has what it takes to win the Super Bowl.
