Even though he didn't go off for 200 yards again like he did on opening day, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill made sure his presence was felt after the team's Sunday Night Football win over the New England Patriots.
After Miami took down Bill Belichick's squad for the fifth time in their past six meetings, Hill stated that it felt "tremendous" waving goodbye to Patriots fans after the win, calling the New England faithful "some of the worst fans in the NFL," as reported by ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques.
Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill on waving goodbye to Patriots fans after the win:
?It felt tremendous, man. Those fans are some of the worst fans in the NFL & I'm going to stand on that they are real nasty ... So yeah, it felt great to wave goodbye to the fans & I'll do it again. Bye.?

Hill has never been known for protecting anyone's feelings, even on the field. His signature "peace sign" gesture to opposing defensive backs he's run past is one of the few pre-score celebrations in the league, similar to Deion Sanders' high-step. Firing a shot at New England fans, as he called them "real nasty" and stated that he'd do it again, was right on brand for the Dolphins superstar.
It's great to see that there's no love lost between these two teams after another installment of their AFC East rivalry. Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is 5-0 against Belichick, so there's plenty of motivation for New England going forward, while Miami will surely want to keep racking up the head-to-head wins after two decades of Tom Brady.
It looks to be a banner year for the Dolphins, who are 2-0 as Hill and Tagovailoa have forged a game-breaking connection, but Hill was limited to 40 yards against New England on Sunday, although he did find the end zone for a key touchdown in the 24-17 win.
Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel's offense looks to be one of the best in the league as it centers around those two, and it's hard to see who can stop it. One thing's for sure; all eyes will be on Miami on October 29 for the next clash between these two teams. It's hard to say just what Hill and his team will do on the field, but we can definitely predict some intensity and bad blood between the two sides.
