The Miami Dolphins made history in today’s game against the Broncos, cumulating the most points since the NFL-AFL merger. Not only did Miami drop 70 points, but they also had 726 total yards of offense and ten touchdowns, leaving the Broncos with no answer on the field.

At the Hard Rock Stadium, cheers of “Three more points!” could be heard during Miami’s final drive. With less than a minute left, the Miami Dolphins had possession of the ball inside the Denver Broncos’ 30-yard line and were just three points away from breaking the single-game scoring record for the NFL.

Following a helmet-to-helmet hit last week, receiver Jaylen Waddle was forced to sit out his first game of his career while in the concussion protocol. Even without him, The Broncos had no answer for the Dolphin’s offense.

Tua Tagovailoa was just one short of Ryan Tannehill’s team record for consecutive completions to start the game. He ended the match with 23 of 26 for 309 yards and four touchdowns.

Running back Raheem Mostert had 13 carries for 82 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. Hill caught nine passes for 157 years and a touchdown.

Rookie Achane had 18 carries for 203 yards and two touchdowns, and he had four catches for 30 yards and two touchdowns.

Sean Payton, the head coach of the Denver Broncos, called the game “embarrassing” and “tough to watch” after it ended.

“Look, it would be one thing to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to get on to the next game,’ but we have to watch that tape, and so tomorrow will be tough for a lot of players – tough for us, too, as coaches,” Payton quotes.
