Plenty of guys got their time to shine yesterday when the Miami Dolphins beat down the Washington Commanders. On offense, like all season, it was the Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill show yet again. The pair connected on two long touchdowns and the case can be made that both of these guys deserve the MVP award. De’Von Achane was back and picked up where he left off with over 100 yards total and two touchdowns.

On defense, someone was going to need to step up with Jaelan Phillips done for the season. Andrew Van Ginkel was the most dominant defensive player on the field as he was all over the place and recorded a pick six.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
