Tyreek Hill doesn’t hesitate to call out Stephen A. Smith, Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless after Miami Dolphins win

The Miami Dolphins came away with a thrilling 22-20 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and star receiver Tyreek Hill had three people in mind after the win: Stephen A. Smith, Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless.

“It’s always about winning the big game,” Hill said. “And that’s where our mind is at right now. And we know that we got the team to do it. A lot of people been saying that we can’t beat good teams and feel like today we kind of showed that. So, we can scratch that off the box. Now we just looking for what Stephen A. and Shannon Sharpe — and I wonder what Skip Bayless gon’ say.”

Hill has never been shy to speak his mind, so it should come as no surprise that he decided to name the three analysts in his postgame press conference.

Bayless is known to be a very passionate Cowboys fan, and the 72-year-old had no filter on X (formerly known as Twitter) when writing about the game.

Smith trolled the Cowboys and their fans after the loss, something Hill likely enjoyed seeing.

Just a few days ago, Sharpe took issue with some of Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s recent comments and said, “Don’t start pretending like you’re a top-three quarterback.”

Perhaps that is the reason why Hill decided to call out Sharpe after Sunday’s game.

Sunday’s win was Miami’s first of the season against a team with a winning record, something the roster was undoubtedly hoping to accomplish this season.

It took Hill some time to get going against the Cowboys, but he wound up catching nine passes for 99 yards. He picked up a crucial first down on the last drive of the game that put Miami in prime position to kick a game-winning field goal.

Given that he only recorded 99 receiving yards on Sunday, the 29-year-old might not hit his goal of 2,000 receiving yards this season. He’s 359 yards away, which means he’d need to average 179.5 receiving yards over Miami’s final two games in order to reach 2,000 for the season.

He likely cares more about his team’s success, however. With the win, the Dolphins clinched a playoff spot and are looking good ahead of two tough contests against the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills. Miami would clinch the No. 1 seed in the AFC if it were to win against the Ravens and Bills.

It’s been a thrilling season for the Dolphins so far, but the team still has some work to do. It’s only December — and Miami is hoping it will still be playing come February.
