The Miami Dolphins appear to be a team on the rise. Their 2022 season ended with their first playoff game since 2016, and their 9-8 record is one that they will look to build on in 2023. That might not be easy – the Dolphins have one of the toughest schedules in the league this fall – but with playmakers like quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and wide receiver Tyreek Hill, this is a team that is going to score points in bunches and be a match for anyone in the AFC East.
The Miami Dolphins game on Sunday, November 5, against the Kansas City Chiefs in Hamburg, Germany, is the hottest ticket of the NFL season. This is technically an away game for the Dolphins, but the atmosphere promises to be one where fans of all 32 teams come together for the first regular season match to be held in Germany. Tickets for this one sold out in 15 minutes, and the cheapest available tickets on Immortal Seats are over $600 as of July.
Home games to watch for this season include a potentially brutal run late in the season against Aaron Rodgers and his New York Jets (December 17), a Dallas Cowboys squad likely to be fighting for the NFC East title (December 24), and against the division favorite Buffalo Bills (last weekend of the regular season.)

Does Tyreek Hill have any shot at 2,000 yards receiving?
Tyreek Hill has never been particularly shy about his talent. The speedster was a star for the Kansas City Chiefs when catching passes from Patrick Mahomes, and he actually elevated his game to haul in a career-high 1,710 receiving yards in 2022. Not content with those numbers, Hill recently claimed on the ‘It Needed to be Said’ podcast that he would eclipse 2,000 yards receiving this fall.
It is worth noting that no player has ever broken the 2,000 yards receiving mark in a single season. To be fair to Hill, it does feel like that number will be passed eventually, especially with each team now having 17 regular season games and with the way offenses air out the ball in the current version of the NFL.
To have a shot, both Hill and Tua will have to stay healthy through all 17 games, which is admittedly difficult with the brutal nature of the league. Hill had 1,104 receiving yards through nine games last season before Tua got injured. That saw a decline in Hill’s numbers as the Dolphins got less out of the quarterback position down the stretch. If Hill can average 125 yards a game for the first two months of the season, then watch this space.
