Tyreek Hill carries Dolphins offense with two spectacular touchdowns

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — Despite their struggles for most of Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Miami Dolphins’ offense is too explosive to count.

Midway through the third quarter, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa found Tyreek Hill one-on-one for a 60-yard touchdown. This marked Tagovailoa’s first completion on a pass thrown from at least 15 yards down the field. He was 0 for 7 on such passes to start the night.

Hill was listed as doubtful to return with an ankle injury to start the second half.

Hill had sparked Miami’s offense in the second quarter as he recovered a fumble and returned it 57 yards for the team’s first touchdown. Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. fumbled after a 6-yard gain, and left tackle Terron Armstead appeared to kick the ball out of the scrum and straight onto the waiting hill, which ran untouched into the end zone. goals. The Dolphins had just 13 total yards against the Los Angeles Chargers defense prior to that point.

The Chargers had taken a 10-0 lead on a fine catch from Mike Williams, who played just six snaps in the last five games while nursing a sprained right ankle. If there were any lingering effects from the injury, they certainly weren’t visible against the Dolphins.

Williams scored the first touchdown of the game when quarterback Justin Herbert rolled to his right and spotted the receiver deep in the end zone. Herbert threw a dart at the 6ft 4in Williams, who jumped up to catch, then made sure to get both toes down before his momentum knocked him out from behind the end zone.

Austin Ekeler made it 17-7 with a one-yard touchdown run just before halftime.
