State NFL roundup: Tyreek Hill explodes in Miami rally

The Miami Dolphins traded five draft choices to the Kansas City Chiefs in March for wide receiver Tyreek Hill with the hope that the six-time Pro Bowler could help unlock the potential of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

In their first game together, the former West Alabama standout caught eight passes for 94 yards in a 20-7 victory over the New England Patriots on Sept. 11.

The lock popped open on Sunday, when Tagovailoa threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns in the Dolphins’ 42-38 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Hill had 11 receptions for 190 yards and two touchdowns. In reaching 190 receiving yards in a game for the fourth time in his NFL career, Hill caught touchdown passes of 48 and 60 yards.

Hill’s TD receptions came on consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter as the Dolphins wiped out a 21-point deficit in the final period to improve to 2-0 this season.

Miami wide receiver Jaylen Waddle caught 11 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday as he and Hill became the first pair of teammates in NFL history with at least 10 receptions
