The Miami Dolphins entered the 2023 NFL Season with a hot start.
After injuries plagued their roster last year, the Dolphins have started to show the league what they’re made of when fully healthy.
Through six games, the Dolphins lead the league in points scored per game with 37.2.
A lot of this has to do with their strong offense, which many say is the fastest in the league.
Raheem Mostert recently appeared on the Pat McAfee Show, proving his belief that they are the fastest team.
“We know that we have the fastest team in the NFL and if anybody else wants to compete with us in the 4×100, we’ll take that challenge,” Mostert said.

Mostert, Jaylen Waddle, and Tyreek Hill are the Dolphins’ three main speedsters on offense.
They also have several DBs with blazing speed, making them a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the ball.
In the NFL, speed matters, especially when it comes to players at wide receiver, running back, and defensive back.
However, this can also come at a cost, a major reason for the Dolphins’ early-round playoff exit in 2022.
Speedy players tend to get injured, given the amount of duress they put on their bodies.
The Dolphins were one of the most injured teams in the league last year.
If all of their skill position players remain on the field, and Tua Tagovailoa stays healthy, there’s no telling how high the Dolphins ceiling is.
At 5-1, they find themselves tied for the top position in the AFC.
