Despite that situation, the Dolphins are off to a great start, considering they lost seven of their first eight games last season.
They were able to defeat some AFC powerhouse squads like the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens.
Likewise, All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been a valuable addition to the squad.
Aside from leading the league in receiving yards, he has a greater production than an entire NFL team.

Pro Football Focus tweeted, “Tyreek Hill leads the league in receiving yards with 477. The Chicago Bears have only 471 combined.”
However, the Bears have won two of their first four games despite the scarcity of receiving yards.
They are going back to basics by being a run-first team.
That’s why running back Khalil Herbert‘s 317 rushing yards rank eighth among leading rushers.
In contrast, quarterback Justin Fields has attempted only 64 passes and made 34 carries for 147 yards.
Fields is completing just 50.7 percent of his passes and has completed a reception to ten different receivers.
Meanwhile, Darnell Mooney leads the Bears in receiving yards with 121.
He is the only Chicago player with over 100 yards in that department.
The Dolphins Aerial Attack Is Clicking
It’s no surprise that Miami has the third-best passing offense in the league, averaging 291.8 yards per game.
Aside from Hill, they have Jaylen Waddle, who has 381 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
Because of his production, the Dolphins are the only team with two wideouts in the top ten.
Miami will look to continue their dominating passing game with Teddy Bridgewater behind center in Week 5 against the New York Jets.
