As far as blowout goes, we probably won’t see one in the same magnitude as the Miami Dolphins’ demolition job on the Denver Broncos anytime soon. Miami made history on Sunday by scoring the most points in NFL history since 1966 as they humiliated Denver, 70-20, in what can only be described as one of the most brutal blowouts in the history of the sport.
Miami Dolphins Destroy Denver Broncos
Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa turned in a magnificent performance in this one, and there’s no denying that he played a key role in his team’s massive win. The 25-year-old completed 23-of-26 passes for 309 yards. He scored four touchdowns without committing a single interception. This is easily Tagovailoa’s best game early in the season as he leads Miami to a 3-0 start.
The Dolphins had to bust out their dance moves in front of a delighted home crowd as the Broncos watched in misery. Denver just couldn’t do anything to stop the Miami freight train on Sunday, and they got absolutely punished for it.
Tua Tagovailoa’s WILD Stat
This is not the first time Tagovailoa has had a strong start to the season. After three games, the Dolphins QB has 72-of-101 completed passes with a touchdown-interception ratio of 8:2.
Those are some pretty impressive numbers, right? Well, you know what’s crazy? The fact that these are the exact same numbers Tagovailoa produced last season in his first three games:
This is a WILD coincidence.

That’s an unbelievably shocking coincidence, and while it remains unconfirmed, this is probably the first time this has happened in NFL history. Then again, Sunday’s bizarre contest had a lot of firsts, so I guess this stunning stat remains consistent with the theme.
The bad news for Miami fans is that last season, Tua went 5-5 after his 3-0 start to the season. He will want to do better this season if the Dolphins are serious about chasing that Super Bowl this year.
