The Miami Dolphins are off to their finest start because 2002 with a record of 5-1, and the lion’s share of the credit goes to the offense particularly, increasing star quarterback Tua Tagoviloa and super star receiver Tyreek Hill.
The offense is on a historical rate in lawns gotten, and points scored through the very first 6 video games. The offense might’ve broken the all-time points scored in a single video game record, however head coach Mike McDaniel went the sophisticated path and kneed the ball rather of kicking a mid-40s basket, more humiliating Denver Broncos head coach Sean Peyton.
With the majority of the heavy lifting originating from Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill, I questioned how they compared to the remainder of the leading NFL QB-WR duos and if they are the very best in the league today.
The brief response is I’m right, and it’s not even close.
Leaving Everyone in the Dust
When the trade for Tyreek Hill was revealed, many media heads were gushing the usual rubbish about Tua. We heard the “Tua can’t hit Tyreek in stride,” “Tyreek’s best years are behind him with Mahomes,” and “Tyreek just went to Miami for the money, and that’s where his career was going to die.”
That was repeated and resounded through the entire offseason. Last year, Tua, Tyreek, and Jaylen Waddle took the league by storm. It began with the fireworks reveal in your home versus the Baltimore Ravens and after that took a little a roller rollercoaster trip due to Tua’s concussion problems and a bad three-game stretch where the offense appeared to get found out and took some time to change.
Even with disparities through injuries and changes, Tyreek had 1,700 lawns, and Waddle had 1,350 lawns. That was simply a stepping stone.
Fast forward to 2023, and the Miami Dolphins have the very best offense without a doubt and lead the league in a number of classifications consisting of scoring and lawns got. Playmakers galore, whether it’s Hill, Waddle, Raheem Mostert, De’Von Achane, or Braxton Berios.
They all ball out, however how does the leading QB-WR combination on the Dolphins rank versus the class of the NFL through the very first 6 weeks?
Tua Tagovailoa: 1876 YDS, 312.7 YPG, AVG 9.5, 14 TD, 5 INT Tyreek Hill: 814 YDS, 135.7 YPG, 19.4 AVG, 6 TD, 43.4% QB SHARE
Jalen Hurts: 1542 YDS, 257.0 YPG, 7.2 AVG, 7 TD, 7 INT A.J. Brown: 672 YDS, 112.0 YPG, 16.0 AVG, 2TD, 43.5% QB SHARE
Josh Allen: 1576 YDS, 262.7 YPG, 7.7 AVG, 13TD, 6 INT Stefon Diggs: 620 YDS, 103.3 YPG, AVG 12.7, 5 TD, 39.3% QB SHARE
Kirk Cousins: 1679 YDS, 279.8 YPG, AVG 7.1, 14 TD, 4 INT Justin Jefferson: 571 YDS, 114.2 YPG, 15.9 AVG, 3 TD, 34.0% QB SHARE
Matthew Stafford: 1677 YDS, 279.5 YPG, 7.4 AVG, 6 TD, 5 INT Puka Nacua: 598 YDS, 99.7 YPG, 12.0 AVG, 2 TD, 35.7% QB SHARE
Through 6 video games, Tua Tagovailoa leads the league in lawns gotten, lawns per video game, lawns per pass effort, and connected for very first in goals with Kirk Cousins.
Tyreek Hill leads the league in lawns gotten, lawns per video game, goals, and lawns per reception amongst qualifiers. Christian Watson has more lawns per reception however just has actually 5 catches compared to Tyreek’s 42.
All in all, it’s safe to state that the duo of Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill is the very best in the NFL this year and are both on rate to exceed.
Just for argument’s sake, if I needed to rank the leading 5 QB-WR duos in the NFL through 6 video games, it would go as follows:
- Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa – Tyreek Hill
- Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen – Stefon Diggs
- Minnesota Vikings: Kirk Cousins – Justin Jefferson (J.J. on I.R.)
- Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Hurts – A.J. Brown
- LA Rams – Matthew Stafford – Puka Nacua
This list might alter throughout the season due to the fact that there are other excellent duos out there like Justin Herbert – Keenan Allen, Matthew Stafford – Cooper Kupp, Joe Burrow – Jamaar Chase, and even Jared Goff – Amon Ra St. Brown.
They’re all excellent, however none can compare Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill up until now in 2023. They remain in a class of their own.
Let us understand in the remarks, or tweet me @saba12_ if Tua Tagovailoa & Tyreek Hill are the very best duo in the NFL today and your own leading 10.
