Miami put up 70 points in a 70-20 win over Denver on Sunday, falling just three points shy of breaking the single-game record for points.

Jeudy and Tagovailoa were teammates at the University of Alabama, and they both were drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft. It seems like Tagovailoa’s college teammate doesn’t want to hear any bragging about the dominant showing from the Dolphins on Sunday.
Jeudy and the Broncos are now 0-3 on the season, and they’ve really struggled defensively, allowing 35 points to the Washington Commanders in Week 2 and 70 to Miami in Week 3.
Tagovailoa had a huge day against the Broncos, finishing the game with 23 completions on 26 pass attempts, 309 passing yards and four touchdown passes.
For Denver, Jeudy had a solid game, catching five passes for 81 yards. He was second on the team in receiving yards behind Courtland Sutton (eight catches for 91 yards).
The Dolphins put on an absolute show from the start of the game against Denver, scoring on their first possession with a 54-yard touchdown pass from Tagovailoa to Tyreek Hill.
Miami didn’t let up, scoring 35 points in the first half to take a 35-13 lead into the break.
The team tacked on another 35 points in the second half, riding speedy rookie running back De’Von Achane in the process.
Achane finished the day with four total touchdowns (two rushing and two receiving). He carried the ball 18 times for 203 yards and had four catches in the game as well.
The win is likely going to be one of the more lopsided games in the NFL this season, so it’s tough for Jeudy and the Broncos to be on the wrong side of that performance.
Jeudy, who missed Week 1 of the 2023 season with a hamstring injury, is hoping to have a strong season in the 2023 campaign – his fourth in the NFL. The Broncos have not had a ton of team success since drafting Jeudy, but he did post a career-high 972 receiving yards in the 2022 season.
It’s possible that one day Jeudy and Tagovailoa could reunite in the NFL after playing together at Alabama.
