4-1, baby.

That’s where my Miami Dolphins are at for the season currently after a gorgeous 31-16 win over the New York Giants (but shout out to the Big Apple, it’s all love). And the biggest reason for the win — if not the biggest — is the outright blazing speed of the Phins offense — also known as 2023’s “Greatest Show on Turf” — redubbed the “Greatest Show on Surf.”

But don’t take it from the grade A nickname, check out the numbers for yourself. They’re absolutely incredible.

Here in the 2023 campaign with the fastest speeds run in a game, the first seven tallies belong to the Dolphins separated between Tyreek Hill, De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. And making it even crazier, if you extend that list out to the top 15, a fourth Dolphin — Jaylen Waddle — makes an appearance.

Just beautiful … here are those stats in video form (from Sunday’s game against the Giants):

To put it even more into perspective, here’s a glorious model of Achane’s 76-yard touchdown run:
