Hill: That 2,000-yard mountain is possible

Sports 06 Dec, 2023 Follow News

Tyreek Hill is brimming with confidence

Miami Dolphins fans in the Cayman Islands still have a strong interest in the gridiron season as their favourite team still have a chance of making the play-offs. 

That’s partly thanks to Tyreek Hill who keeps his 2,000-yard NFL dream alive after another electric display for the Dolphins against Washington Commanders last weekend.

Hill rose to 1,481 yards through 12 games as he continued to hunt down Calvin Johnson’s NFL single-season record; the Dolphins receiver scored two touchdowns against the Commanders.

Hill made five catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns in the 45-15 victory to reach 92 receptions this season.

Hill, who recorded a career-high 1,710 receiving yards in 2022, not only boosted his pursuit of the milestone but enhanced his outside MVP case amid the possibility of a first non-quarterback winner since Adrian Peterson in 2012.

“I believe I am having my best season, even if I didn’t have the numbers, you know what I’m saying? I feel like I’m doing a great job of being in the right spot for the quarterback and making sure I’m doing a great job blocking and just understanding this whole offense,” Hill said.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa must be enjoying having such a tenacious team-mate in Hill who has helped them to a 9-3 record so far.

Meanwhile, the biggest game in the NFL playoff race this week will be on Sunday Night Football, with the Eagles at the Cowboys in a matchup that will go a long way toward determining the NFC East, and the No. 1 seed in the conference.

The AFC playoff race also has some big games on Sunday, including the Jaguars at the Browns and the Bills at the Chiefs.
