Miami Dolphins win and record a glorious record

Landover-. Tyreek hilHe had two touchdowns among his 157 receiving yards, and the Miami Dolphins they defeated the Commanders of washington 45-15 on sunday to increase their lead atop the afc east and reach 9-3 for the first time since 2001.

Tua Tagovailoa He completed 18 of 24 for 280 yards, including touchdown passes of 78 and 60 yards up the hill, the NFL’s leading receiver left wide open on his 11th and 12th trips to the end zone this season. Tagovailoa had no turnovers after giving the ball away four times in the last two games.

De’von Achane ran for two touchdowns in his return after missing five of the last six with a knee injury. Raheem Mostert also had a rushing touchdown for Miami’s league-leading offense that racked up 406 yards.

Extending their winning streak to three, the Dolphins even got scores from their defense, thanks to linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel’s 33-yard pick-6 over Sam Howell late in the first quarter. Howell was also fired three times.

Washington (4-9) had no answer for Hill in the first game and coach Ron Rivera called the defensive plays following his decision to fire coordinator Jack del Rio. Hill remains on pace to break Calvin Johnson’s record for most receiving yards in a season and become the first to reach 2,000.

Howell, who ran for two touchdowns and was 12 of 23 for 127 yards, is on pace for a more dubious record: most sacks made in a season. He’s 58, now leads the league in interceptions with 14 and has had one returned for a touchdown in three straight games.

The Commanders lost a fourth straight game and have been outscored 150-70 in this streak. They have lost nine of 11 since opening the season with back-to-back wins.

Miami was so convincingly ahead that coach Mike McDaniel pulled Tagovailoa, Hill and many of the offensive skill players early in the fourth quarter. Backup Mike White led a garbage-time touchdown drive.
