The Miami Dolphins are off to a 2-0 start, and they have looked mighty impressive on the offensive side of the football.
The biggest reason for that excellence has been star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who recently went after both Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons and Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones.

Hill also recently said that he may be more of a lion than a cheetah, which caused Parsons essentially telling him to stay in his lane.

Hill’s nickname is “Cheetah” because of his blazing downfield speed. That speed has made him one of the NFL’s best wide receivers over the last several years, and it helped him win a Super Bowl championship with the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2019 season.
He was traded to the Dolphins prior to last season, and in his maiden voyage with them, he put up a career-high 1,710 receiving yards while helping them make the playoffs for only the third time in the last 20 years.
So far this year, he is at 255 yards, which is third in the league, and he is first in receiving touchdowns with three.
While the Fins are third in points scored and first in total yards, their defense is a concern, especially with star veteran cornerback Jalen Ramsey out until December because of a knee injury.
They rank just 19th in points allowed and 24th in total yards given up, and their rushing defense has been especially porous. In Week 1, they allowed Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler to have a big game with 117 rushing yards on just 16 carries.
Meanwhile, Parsons’ Cowboys are 2-0 following two blowout wins, and they feel they have the best defense in the entire league, especially since they boast arguably the best cornerback duo right now in Trevon Diggs and Stephon Gilmore.
Miami will get a chance to poke holes in that defense in Week 16 when it hosts “America’s Team” in a Christmas Eve showdown at home. It could go a long way in proving that Miami has what it takes to make a run at the Super Bowl for the first time in what seems like forever.
