The Miami Dolphins and Tua Tagovailoa are the talk of the NFL world this week. They pulled off an impressive come-from-behind victory in Week 2 on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, which has caused a lot of people to take notice of what is going on in South Beach.

There were a lot of questions about whether or not Tagovailoa could get the most out of the Dolphins’ offseason acquisition, as they traded for speedster Tyreek Hill.

So far, so good, as Hill and Jaylen Waddle have looked like one of the best wide receiver duos in the league in the early going.

Both torched the Ravens’ secondary, catching 11 passes and two touchdowns apiece. Hill finished with 190 yards while Waddle had 171.

This week, Tagovailoa and the offense will have a stiff test against the Buffalo Bills. This is a bigger matchup than anyone anticipated that it would be coming into the season as the Bills are the favorites to win the Super Bowl and the Dolphins were viewed as a playoff team, at best, by many.

But, coming off their impressive Week 2 performance, this is the game some people are most excited about heading into Week 3. Tagovailoa remains even-keeled, speaking as a true leader would when asked about the impending AFC East face-off.

“Well, we understand that they’re a really good team,” Tagovailoa said. “That’s no secret. Everyone knows they’re a really good team. They’re tough defensively, they’re explosive offensively. So, I wouldn’t say that we have a measuring stick for how good these guys are. Because you look at it, their opening game, they beat the Super Bowl champions of last year. And they didn’t just beat them — it was by a lot. And the next team they played, really good team, they beat them by a lot.

“So for us, we’re just looking at playing the way we play and playing the way we’ve played for the past two weeks. We’ll go out there and we’ll give our best and we’ll get theirs.”

The Bills have destroyed each of their first two opponents, blowing out the Los Angeles Rams on opening night before dismantling the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. They outscored their opponents 72-17 as the games haven’t been overly competitive.

However, that seemingly isn’t phasing Tagovailoa and the Dolphins. They showed what they are capable of in the second half against the Ravens and they will need another big performance to keep up with a Buffalo team that has punted only once in two games this season.
