Aside from their Week 4 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Miami Dolphins have cruised through the first quarter of the 2022 NFL season.
They started their campaign with three straight wins, all of which were against premier AFC teams like the New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, and Buffalo Bills.
Their resilience was proven when they overturned a 35-14 deficit to win against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.
In that game, the All-Pro wide receiver led the way with 11 receptions for 190 yards and two touchdowns.
That performance helped him lead the league in receiving yards through four games with 477.
Likewise, he earned most of those yards with Tua Tagovailoa as their quarterback.
Therefore, the former West Alabama standout is proving that he continues to be a threat regardless of who’s throwing the ball to him.
Hill doubled down on this in a recent press conference.
Kinda think Tyreek Hill was being serious here. Get the arm ready, @Marcel_LJ. 🤣

Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov shared an exchange between Hill and ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques.
Meirov tweeted, “Kinda think Tyreek Hill was being serious here. Get the arm ready, @Marcel_LJ.”
Louis-Jacques started with, “I know you said that QB doesn’t necessarily matter to your production. I think you said you put up numbers with Alex Smith, put up numbers with…”
Then, Hill responded by saying, “I’ll put up numbers with you,” to the delight of everyone in attendance.
The one-time Super Bowl champion also burst into laughter after his comment.
More Numbers By Hill
So far, he is proving worth the four-year, $120 million contract the Dolphins gave him.
Aside from leading the league in receiving yards, he also leads the league with pass plays of 20 yards or more with eight.
Hill’s statement will be put to the test since Tagovailoa will be out of action for Week 5 against the New York Jets.
Therefore, the six-time Pro Bowler will have to put up big numbers with Teddy Bridgewater behind center.
