The Dolphins, Miami’s NFL team, played the Denver Broncos on Sunday, September 24th. Even though the Dolphins were the favorite going into the game, the Dolphins ended up exceeding expectations.

The Dolphins scored seventy points while the Broncos scored twenty points. The Dolphins set their franchise record for most points scored in a game, and had the third highest scoring game in NFL history. The Dolphins had the opportunity to beat the all time record, but opted not to in a demonstration of sportsmanship.

The Dolphins also became the first team in NFL history to score 10 touchdowns while covering 726 total yards in a single game.

“We’re not trying to go out there and humiliate teams” Tua Tagovaiola, the Dolphins’ starting quarter back, said in regards to not attempting a field goal.

Tagovailoa played a nearly perfect game, attaining a passer rating of 155.8 out of 158.3 by completing 23 out of 26 passes. The Dolphins’ quarterback also scored 4 touchdowns.

Running-backs Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane each scored 4 touchdowns and combined for more than 300 yards combined.

“This doesn’t compare to anything I’ve seen or been a part of…proud of our guys,” Tagovailoa said after the game.

The Dolphins are currently the last team in the American Football Conference that is undefeated, with a 3-0 record.
