Last week’s clash between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins was one of the most anticipated in the NFL, with everyone eager to see what superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill would do against his old team.
The Chiefs startled everyone by moving Hill to the Dolphins before the start of last season because the two sides couldn’t agree on a new deal for perhaps the league’s top wideout.
Even though the Chiefs and Hill appeared to have made a mistake, both have done well since their split, with Kansas City winning another Super Bowl and the quick receiver not skipping a beat while becoming Tua Tagovailoa’s favorite target in Miami.
However, things took a turn for the worst for Hill last week in Germany when his fumble resulted in a defensive score for the Chiefs, which proved to be the game-winner.
Even though the Dolphins scored two touchdowns in the third quarter, the damage had already been done, and Kansas City went on to win 21-14.
During his podcast this week, Hill blamed Dolphins teammate Cedrick Wilson for his fumble, despite admitting that he needed to hang onto the football, according to Dov Kleiman.

Hill attempted to remain modest when discussing this play, but he couldn’t help but criticize his teammate for failing to build a block while collecting a screen pass from Tagovailoa.
Even though he was technically correct about Wilson, he was also correct about the need for himself to keep onto the football in order to prevent the game-changing play.
