Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill: Every time Tua needed an opening pass play during his Dolphins-winning drive, his main target would be wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who quickly made plays downfield for first downs. Tagovailoa even made quick throws directly at Hill twice on three consecutive fumble recoveries to score their winning touchdown drive!

Hill was, once more, the most dangerous player on the field – finishing with nine receptions for 99 yards!

Red zone offence was another area where Dallas struggled, as Dak Prescott and the Cowboys lost an early first-quarter fumble at the 1-yard line first down that resulted in Dallas giving away three plays within the red zone area of space.

The Cowboys’ lack of pass protection was evident throughout their game against Washington; its effects were felt in third-down conversion rates and red zone success. Prescott was hit four times while 12 players received hits within that zone – Tyler Dragon.

Halftime: Dolphins lead Cowboys 13-7

There was some debate at halftime as the Dolphins scored late to move ahead against their Cowboy opponents despite scoring with less than 30 seconds remaining in regulation play.

Micah Parsons was flagged for roughing the quarterback, helping the Dolphins’ drive continue and ultimately leading to Raheem Mostert scoring an easy touchdown. Parsons was understandably upset about this flag; Fox rules specialist Dean Blandino also challenged it by noting he did not violate any rule by flagging Parsons as breaking it.

Overall, it was an eventful first period with questionable decisions, significant plays, and solid football all coming into play, eventually giving way to an eventual 13-7 Dolphins lead at halftime – Joe Rivera.

Raheem Mostert extends the Dolphins lead just before halftime by scoring a touchdown for them.

Raheem Mostert scored 21 touchdowns this year to give the Dolphins their initial advantage of the matchup. Mostert’s touchdown came off an accurate four-yard throw by Tua Tagovailoa, who then cut left at snap time before reaching back for it for a one-handed catch at the corner of the ending zone.

Mostert and Christian McCaffrey tied for most touchdowns scored this NFL season after Dallas linebacker Micah Parsons was called for hitting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during their previous matchup; Tagovailoa needed extra timeout due to confusion among wide receivers during that game.

Jaylen Waddle could miss Sunday’s match due to an eye injury he reportedly suffers from.

CeeDee Lamb has become an icon, connecting several legendary Cowboys players with iconic Dolphins players in seven consecutive first-quarter touchdowns, making her the longest current streak currently active within the NFL, according to Dallas Cowboys.

Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald joins Dez Bryant and Hall-of-Famer Terrell Owens as Cowboys players with seven straight scoring performances in consecutive games.

Lamb became only the sixth wide receiver in NFL history – and one of a few from Dallas history – to achieve 5,000 yards off of scrimmage within four years, joining Rams legend Torry Holt, Hall-of-Famer Jerry Rice, Randy Moss as well as current players Michael Thomas and Justin Jefferson who had all achieved it before him. Victoria Hernandez contributed to this report.

Dolphins Make Error in Red Zone

Raheem Mostert was injured. Jaylen Waddle had a website. Additionally, Mike McDaniel decided to go for four-and-five on the left side.

Tua Tagovailoa and Cedric Wilson joined in an unsuccessful experiment. Wilson could not stay within boundaries in any play he participated in, and consequently, the play failed.

Safid Deed notes, “Dolphins made an error on downs which would have given them three points”.

Stars Are Out Of Miami; Dallas Lead 7-0

Players were equally present for Dallas and Miami during the opening quarter; CeeDee Lamb caught a TD pass while Jaylen Waddle grabbed the 50-yard ball from Tua Tagovailoa for Jaylen Waddle, who set up a Miami Field Goal attempt.

Lamb’s touchdown put the Cowboys ahead 7-3 with just over one-and-a-half minutes remaining in the quarter’s first.

Lamb currently boasts four receptions totalling 93 yards for touchdown-scoring purposes – Tyler Dragon.

Dolphins strike first to take an early 3-0 advantage in Miami Gardens, FLA.

Miami was able to send Jason Sanders out for a 55-yard attempt. However, no player in his position had returned, thus necessitating a timeout.

However, Sanders was able to execute one of his signature long kicks early in the first quarter to give Miami an immediate 3-0 edge and score Mike McDaniel the winning point – Safid Deen.

The Cowboys lost the ball at the 1-yard line.

At first glance, it seemed likely that the Cowboys could score from the 1-yard line, but somehow, football gods had other ideas, and this touchdown never materialised.

Only Tony Pollard was stopped from reaching the 1-yard line as an alternative play before it was lost because of a poor exchange between quarterback Dak Prescott and fullback Hunter Luepke of Dallas Cowboys – Joe Rivera.

Tyreek Hill will officially play in Sunday’s Dolphins-Cowboys clash after suffering an ankle injury against the Jets last week and missing week 15 against them.

Hill will need to work hard to break Calvin Johnson’s single-season receiving yardage record of 1,964. As of Sunday’s matchup against Joe Rivera’s Chargers, Hill currently boasts 1,542 yards on regular season receiving yards compared to Johnson’s 1,964. – Joe Rivera
