Ravens’ Opposing Wideout No. 3: Tyreek Hill
The Ravens play the Miami Dolphins in Week 2, which wouldn’t normally be a challenging matchup save for one glaring change: Tyreek Hill.
Hill made headlines this offseason by forcing a trade out of Kansas City and becoming the league’s highest paid wide receiver in Miami. He’s the kind of player that needs no introduction and will scare any and all defenses regardless of how many elite cornerbacks you have on the team.
Hill’s illustrious six-year tenure on the Chiefs included six Pro Bowls and three All-Pro honors, and he is arguably the fastest and most dynamic offensive weapon money can buy.
In 2021, Hill caught 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns, though his most memorable performance may have been against the Buffalo Bills in the playoffs when he torched the Bills for 150 yards and scored one of the many fourth quarter touchdowns.
Blink, and he’s gone. Hill’s speed will put Humphrey and Peters to the test, both of whom will need to successfully rehab from their injuries to even have a chance at keeping up with Hill.
Given that this matchup comes at the start of the season, the Ravens’ defense may not be completely healthy, and Hill could end up tearing through the rookie corners for breakfast.
