Tyreek Hill: This one will mean a lot more because I’ve never been an underdog

Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill is in an unfamiliar position entering the 2022 postseason: underdog.

Spending his first six seasons with the Chiefs, Hill and his team were favored to win each of his first 13 postseason games.

With rookie third-string quarterback starting Sunday’s game against the Bills, that is decidedly not the case this week. Buffalo is generally favored by two touchdowns across most sports books.

But Hill said Friday that’s providing a little extra motivation heading into Sunday’s contest.

“This one right here will mean a lot more to me because I’ve never been an underdog,” Hill said, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. “In Kansas City, I was blessed to be on a real good football team. Here, it’s different. I feel like right now I’ve got a chip on my shoulder and so do the rest of the guys.”

Hill finished second in the league with 119 catches and 1,710 yards this season, also scoring seven touchdowns.

In his 13 postseason appearances, Hill’s caught 84 passes for 1,081 yards with five touchdowns — including 23 receptions for 285 yards with three TDs last year.

  1. “In Kansas City, I was blessed to be on a real good football team.” So now you aren’t on a real good team? Don’t worry Tyreek, it will mean a lot less when you get dog-walked this weekend. BUT, there is a silver-lining, the memories of the games you won in KC will mean a LOT more!

  2. Enjoy… cuz that feeling will be happening a lot with your present set of three backup QB’s

  3. “In Kansas City, I was blessed to be on a real good football team. Here, it’s different”

    Hahahaahaha

  4. The guy is still having success. Everyone said he was done. And that he would throw fits because he wouldn’t get the looks. The guy is an All Pro again in a brand new scheme with a couple of brand new QBs. He’s a gamer.
