“I always feel like nobody can guard me,” Hill said. “As a competitor, I feel like – ask anybody in our room – they’ll say the same thing. Can’t nobody guard me.”
Hill dominated for the Dolphins, catching the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter that put the team up 36-34. That score held up as the final in the Miami win.
The star wideout was targeted 15 times by quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Sunday, and he reeled in 11 passes for 215 yards and two scores. Hill caught a 35-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter, and his longest reception on the day was 47 yards.
Hill is well on his way to his goal of finishing with 2,000 receiving yards this season. Hill previously said that he just needs to stay healthy and keep attention to detail to reach that goal.
In the 2022 campaign, he finished with 1,710 yards on a career-high 119 receptions.
What may be the most impressive part about Hill’s 2022 numbers is that Tagovailoa only played in 13 games for the Dolphins since he missed time with multiple concussions.
Hill is easily one of the fastest players in the NFL, and he has big-play ability just about every time he touches the ball for the Dolphins. Miami relied on him heavily on Sunday, giving him more than double the targets of any other player.
Jaylen Waddle (five targets), Durham Smythe (seven targets), Braxton Berrios (five targets) and River Cracraft (five targets) were the next-closest players to Hill on the team.
Hill is clearly confident in his abilities, and it’s hard not to be after he had such a big game. The Dolphins are hoping that Hill can continue to put together performances like these throughout the 2023 season, as the team needs him to play well to make the playoffs.
The next chance for the Dolphins’ star receiver to show off his elite ability to get open will come on Sunday, Sept. 17 against the New England Patriots. New England lost its season opener on Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles.
