Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill made an incredible confession about his 60-yard touchdown in the first half of Miami’s 45-15 blowout over the Washington Commanders on Sunday. 

At the nine-minute mark of the second period, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa sent the ball arching over the Commanders’ defense before Hill caught it near the 20-yard line. 

Following the game, Grant Paulsen, a writer for The Athletic and reporter for NBC Sports, posted the play and called it ‘one of the coolest plays’ he has ever seen.  Paulsen also said he ‘cannot stress how bad this throw was and how amazing this play by Hill is,’ which prompted a response form Hill. 

‘Bad take,’ Hill said on X, formerly Twitter. ‘I ran my route wrong and Tua threw the ball exactly where I was suppose to be.’

‘He noticed my angle put enough air time on it just to give me time to adjust,’ Hill continued to praise his quarterback.

Hill visibly looked over his shoulders and adjusted his run to catch the ball for the touchdown. Hill appeared to be running on a straight line parallel to the ball’s trajectory before the glance got him to angle right towards the catch.

Hill finished the the game with five receptions for 157 yards and two touchdowns as the Dolphins steamrolled over the Commanders. 

With his incredible speed, Hill currently leads the NFL in rushing yards with 1,481 and rushing touchdowns with 12. 

Tagovailoa is also finding a lot of success this season as one of the top facilitators in the NFL. Tagovailoa is third in the NFL in passing yards with 3,457. 

The Dolphins have one of the best records in the NFL with a 9-3 standing on top of the AFC East. Miami have also won their last three games with five left in the regular season. 

Hill, Tagovailoa, and company will look to continue their winning ways against the Tennessee Titans on December 11.
