The Miami Dolphins made history in Week 3 as they dropped 70 points and 726 yards of total offense in their Week 3 win over the Denver Broncos.
The Dolphins moved to 3-0 and continue to prove that they should be considered a Super Bowl threat this season.
The offense has been able to tear up opposing defenses through three weeks, though they really outdid themselves against the Broncos who looked completely overmatched throughout the afternoon.
Mike McDaniel has been able to build off his first year as the team’s head coach as he has them playing their best football since he took the job.
McDaniel is widely regarded as a bright offensive mind, but even he has to be impressed with how well the team’s been able to execute.
However, he also showed some class as he had a chance to break the all-time scoring record and Robert Griffin III made sure to give him his props via his Twitter account.
The Denver Broncos didn’t respect Mike McDaniel enough to give him an interview for their head coaching vacancy, but he respected them enough to not kick a field goal to set the ALL TIME record for points in an NFL game.

McDaniel has several ties to the Denver organization as he grew up there and was a ballboy for the team.
He later interned for the Broncos, but somehow didn’t get an interview for their vacant head coaching job last offseason.
Regardless, Miami has to be happy with how things turned out as he’s been able to turn around the franchise and give fans hope that they can go deep into the postseason.
Breaking a record for most points scored in a game would have been a fun thing to put on his resume, but it looks like McDaniel has his eyes on a much bigger goal.NEXT: Mike McDaniel Makes His Thoughts Clear About Dolphins' Potential
