Tyreek Hill and Tua Tagovailoa can’t wait for upcoming Miami Dolphins matchup vs. Philadelphia Eagles

3 Min Read

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and receiver Tyreek Hill spoke about the team’s Week 7 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles next week.

The Dolphins, who are now 5-1 on the season, will take on a Philly team that entered Week 6 with a perfect 5-0 record. The team is facing the New York Jets in Week 6.

Hill is looking forward to the challenge.

Tagovailoa, who was teammates with Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts at the University of Alabama, shared how much he respects the team’s upcoming opponent.

The Dolphins will get a chance to show how they stack up against one of the best teams in the NFL in Week 7. The Eagles made the Super Bowl last season, but they ended up losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.

In Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, Miami erased a 14-0 deficit to end up winning 42-21. The team’s offense was elite again, scoring six touchdowns – three through the air and three on the ground.

Tagovailoa led the team’s impressive passing attack by completing 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 262 yards and three scores. The former No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft found Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Raheem Mostert for scores.

Mostert had a three-touchdown game, rushing for two more scores on 17 carries. The team’s sixth touchdown came from backup running back Salvon Ahmed, who finished the day with 23 rushing yards and a score.

Hill, who has been one of the best receivers in the NFL again this season, caught six of his 10 targets against Carolina for 163 yards and a touchdown. Hill’s longest catch went for 47 yards, and he also gained 41 yards on his touchdown grab.

Philadelphia will be one of the biggest tests that the Dolphins face this season. Miami lost to the Buffalo Bills on the road earlier this season, but it has rebounded nicely with wins over Carolina and the New York Giants since then.

The Eagles – if they beat the Jets on Sunday – would be the only undefeated team left in the league through six weeks after the San Francisco 49ers lost to the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

Hopefully for Dolphins fans, Hill and Tagovailoa can guide the team to a victory in Week 7.
