The Miami Dolphins offense is tailor-made for Tyreek Hill, and vice versa.
The former Kansas City Chiefs superstar is well on pace to top the 2,000-yard mark this season.
He talked about how he wanted to reach that plateau before the start of the season, and he’s already halfway there.
With his eight catches for 112 yards against the New England Patriots, the All-Pro wideout has now become just the fourth player in NFL history to get at least 1,000 receiving yards through the first eight games of the season (1,014).
When asked about this milestone, Hill just talked about how he’s never stopped believing in himself regardless of the doubters (via Joe Schad).

Hill scored his league-leading eighth touchdown of the season on a 42-yard toss by Tua Tagovailoa.
Cheetah is averaging a whopping 126.8 yards per game, which means he’s on pace to get 2,155 receiving yards this season.
That would be an NFL record, not to mention the fact that he’d become the first-ever 2,000 yard receiver in the history of the league.
Of course, some would want to look down on that record by stating that the regular season has an additional game now, but at this rate, he’d reach that mark before the 17th game, so there would be no way to take anything away from him.
The Dolphins have become the most entertaining team to watch in the league, and with a 6-2 record, it seems like they could make plenty of noise in the postseason.NEXT: Mike McDaniel Jokes About 1 Dolphins Player 'Disappointing' Him
