Tyreek Hill once again made history in his debut season with the Miami Dolphins.

Hill entered the Dolphins’ Week 9 road contest against the Chicago Bears leading the NFL in both receptions (69) and receiving yards (961). He was just coming off of a potent outing in Miami’s Week 8 comeback win over the Detroit Lions, where he tallied 12 receptions and 188 receiving yards.

As noted by NFL Research on Twitter, Hill also came into the day needing 123 receiving yards to break the record for the most receiving yards in a player’s first nine games of a season in the Super Bowl era.

It took a while, but Hill became the new holder of this record during the second half of the Dolphins’ road clash with the Bears. This record was previously held by Pro Football Hall of Fame wideout Calvin Johnson; he logged an astounding 1,083 receiving yards over his opening nine appearances in the Lions’ 2013 campaign.

In the big picture, Hill is continuing to make a strong case to be a serious contender for this year’s NFL MVP award. He came into Week 9 on pace to finish the campaign with 2,042 receiving yards, which would shatter the mark for the most such yards in a single season in NFL history.

No wide receiver has ever won the NFL MVP award, but as Hill noted ahead of the Week 9 contest against the Lions, it is “possible” for such a player to win it.

“I think that it’s possible,” Hill said during a press conference on Wednesday. “For me to be in such conversations like that is just a blessing within itself. I just want to say thank God for my people, my peers and people just acknowledging me to even be in that conversation. I came from a small town, didn’t grow up with a lot. I grew up in a crazy situation. Just to be playing in the NFL every day, for me, I’ve already accomplished my dream.

“For me to be in the MVP conversation, that’s legacy right there for me.”

Hill sure has what it takes to defy the odds and take home this prestigious honor in February.
