Dolphins' Tyreek Hill rips Patriots fans over remarks: 'They are real nasty'

12:48 18.09.2023 - FOX News, Ryan Gaydos

Hill had a touchdown in the win.

The Miami Dolphins narrowly defeated the New England Patriots on Sunday night and moved to 2-0.

Tyreek Hill had five catches on targets for 40 yards with a touchdown in the 24-17 win. However, while he was happy to get the victory, Hill suggested he was even happier to get out of Foxborough, Massachusetts. He revealed he was receiving some hateful remarks hurled toward his way during the game.

He said "it felt tremendous" to wave goodbye to the fans.

"Those fans are some of the worst fans in the NFL," Hill said, via ESPN. "And I'm going to stand on that. they are real nasty. Some of the things they were saying, I wouldn't say in church. So yeah, it felt great to wave goodbye to the fans, and I'll do it again. Bye."

Hill is off to a good start to the 2023 season despite the vitriol.

He had 16 catches for 255 yards and three touchdowns. His touchdown total is leading the league.

Miami also got a huge help from running back Raheem Mostert during the team. He broke off a 43-yard touchdown run to bolster Miami's lead. He finished with 121 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns.

"I think he was hard to tackle. And I think that he - that was a huge boost, especially the way they were playing," Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel said. "We needed the line of scrimmage. And you have to take advantage of overplay. So if they're overplaying the pass game, if you want to be a good offense, you have to threaten them with the run.

"And I told them early that if - they are telling you something when, you know, they're coverage first. Generally, defenses aren't that way. They felt good about their up-front matchups. And I thought the guys were properly prepared and took that personal. And we were able to make some plays there that were instrumental. So that's something that we've been building on.

"That's an important moment for the guys because, you know, defenses watched tape. And they're going to try to evaluate how you've won games before and not allow you to do the same thing to them. So that was their priority. And I thought guys did a good job. And there will be stuff that we'll get better from too. But the guys were fired up to be able to get the opportunities to do that."

Tyreek Hill has a problem with nasty' Patriots fans

Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill slammed Patriots fans after Miami beat New England on Sunday, 24-17, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

Following the game, Hill was spotted waving goodbye to Patriots fans as they made their way out of the stadium.

When asked later in the locker room about how it felt to troll Patriots fans, Hill didn't hold back.

"It felt tremendous, man," Hill said, according to ESPN. ..... Bye."

This wasn't the first time Hill, 29, had issues with Patriots fans.

In 2018, a man at Gillette Stadium was charged with disorderly conduct for dousing Hill with a beer following a touchdown reception while he played for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The end of that touchdown catch by #Chiefs Tyreek Hill not exactly a banner moment for #Patriots fans. Especially the Bud Lite to the face.

Hill, a four-time All-Pro, is in his second season with the Dolphins.

He went off for a career-high 1,710 receiving yards last year as he, Jaylen Waddle and Tua Tagovailoa carved up NFL secondaries.

Hill said he thinks he can hit 2,000 receiving yards this season.

On Sunday, he pulled down five receptions for 40 yards and one touchdown with the Patriots focusing their defense on the speedster.

That came one week after Hill torched the Chargers for 215 yards and two scores.

As a result, Hill, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, is on pace for 2,165 receiving yards this season.

Former Lions receiver Calvin Johnson holds the record with 1,964 in 2012.

The Lions Hall of Famer did that when the NFL regular-season schedule was 16 games.

Hill, if he stays healthy, could benefit from a 17th game in his quest for 2,000 yards.
