Bad Beats: Jaylen Waddle falls 1-yard short and more from Dolphins vs Bengals Thursday Night Football
The Cincinnati Bengals earned a tough home win against the Miami Dolphins last night on Thursday Night Football 27-15.
Of course, the game was highlighted by yet another scary incident involving Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. I’m not adding the video, but Tua was carted off the field on a stretcher following a sack by Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Josh Tupou in the second quarter.
This happened after last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Tagovailoa was visibly shaken up following a hit by linebacker Matt Milano. He attempted to run down the field for the next play, then stumbled and lost his balance. Not posting that video either. Luckily, Tua was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation and was conscious with movement in all his extremities.
JAYLEN WADDLE BAD BEAT
The worst beat of the night came with Jaylen Waddle, who didn’t have a reception in the second half and finished with 39 yards, killing FanDuel’s Super Boost.
A friend of the website also set in this parlay, which was doomed by the hook on an alternate total play.
Tyreek Hill – Record Setting Pace
The Miami Dolphins had a rough night on Thursday Night Football. However, Tyreek Hill continued his amazing start to the 2022 NFL season, racking up 160 yards on 10 catches, highlighted by a 64-yard catch from Dolphins backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the third quarter.
Hill is on a record-setting pace through four games this year. He’s has 477 yards already, averaging 119 yards per game, putting him on a 17-game page of 2,028 yards.
No wide receiver has EVER totaled 2,000 yards in a season. Calvin Johnson holds that record with 1,964 yards in 2012.
Before last night’s game, Hill promised a big performance, telling reporters “I can’t wait to go against Eli Apple. I owe you, boy. I owe you. I’m here. The Cheetah’s here.” The matchup didn’t happen much during the game, but Eli Apple was defending the final pass of the night, which fell incomplete from Bridgewater to Hill.
The Miami Dolphins and Tyreek Hill will face the Jets defense in Week 5. The somewhat good news is, that even with Tua Tagovailoa likely out, the Bridgewater connection seemed solid last night.
