With Mike McDaniel leading the way, most expected the Miami Dolphins to defeat the Denver Broncos when the two teams faced off in South Florida on Sunday.
However, no one was prepared for the Dolphins to wipe the floor with the Broncos by scoring 10 touchdowns and putting an astounding 70 points on the scoreboard.
But that’s what happened as McDaniel and Miami left their home building on Sunday with a 70-20 win over a Denver team that is now 0-3 on the season.
Unsurprisingly, not everyone was a fan of how the Dolphins demolished the Broncos in Week 3, including multiple NFL owners, according to a report on Monday.
Speaking with multiple NFL owners, I’m told there is a common feeling that #Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel running up the score on the Broncos was “disrespectful” to the game of Football.

It’s certainly an interesting reaction from these owners, if it’s actually true, especially since we never heard about this in the past when some of the New Orleans Saints teams coached by Sean Payton would put up 50 or 60 points against an opponent.
But now that Payton, who is in his first year as Denver’s head coach, was on the other end of a royal beatdown, it’s apparently “disrespectful.”
Broncos fans are probably the only people who should feel disrespected after the embarrassing performance that their team delivered on Sunday.
They were led to believe that Payton was going to come in and fix Denver’s problems from a season ago when Nathaniel Hackett was the team’s head coach.
Instead, the Broncos seem even worse than they were in 2022, and after Sunday in Miami, fans are likely going to find it difficult to feel optimistic about the team for the rest of the season.NEXT: Tua Tagovailoa Shares His Thoughts On Historic Win Over Broncos
