Tyreek Hill is continuing to make the most out of his debut season with the Miami Dolphins.
Hill came into the Dolphins’ Week 8 road matchup against the Detroit Lions leading the NFL in receiving yards with 773, and he reached 900-plus such yards for the third straight campaign during the contest. He currently sits at nine receptions for 163 receiving yards through three quarters against the Lions.
Hill also made NFL history in this road contest, as he became the second player ever to tally at least 150 receiving yards in four of his team’s first eight games of a season. Roy Green is the only other player in league history who has achieved this notable feat, which he managed to accomplish over the 1984 campaign with the then-St. Louis Cardinals.

In the big picture, this feat for Tyreek Hill sure is quite impressive considering that the likes of Pro Football Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Randy Moss did not manage to reach it during their respective careers. They each did have several seasons where they were close to doing just that, including Moss’ 2003 campaign where he orchestrated three such performances over the Vikings’ opening eight games of the year.
For Hill, he is well on his way to recording 1,500-plus receiving yards for the first time in his career.
