The Miami Dolphins offense has looked unstoppable at times this season. While they were stymied slightly by the Buffalo Bills last week, the offense has been racking up the yards. With their offensive output in week 5, they have officially surpassed the 2000 St. Louis Rams who were known as “The Greatest Show On Turf”.
Miami Dolphins Offenses Surpasses “The Greatest Show On Turf”
Through their first five games, the Dolphins have 2,568 total yards of offense. This slightly edges the 2000 Rams who were at 2,527 total yards through five weeks. That offense was led by quarterback Kurt Warner and had Marshall Faulk, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt as offensive weapons. The Dolphins have just as potent playmakers on offense. Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill have been the NFL’s best connection but Jaylen Waddle and rookie De’Von Achane have been dominant as well. Just as the Rams’ offense was in 2000, this offense is a blast to watch.
Can They Keep Up The Pace?
The Rams ended the season with 7,335 total yards. If the Dolphins keep playing like this, it would not shock me if they surpass that number. Tyreek Hill has consistently been cooking cornerbacks deep and getting long touchdowns every week. Miami has an advantage in that they play an additional game which will help them. They also have some easy games on the schedule where they could rack up offensive numbers. Ultimately, Miami is focused on winning and not breaking offensive records as head coach Mike McDaniel alluded to.
“The Greatest Show On Turf” was a must-see television event. The 2023 Miami Dolphins are slowly becoming that as well. With all of the offensive weapons on the field, a highlight play can happen at any time. Can the Dolphins ride this offense all the way to the Super Bowl and become a record-setting unit?
