Miami Dolphins individual stats 2022 review: Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle

The Miami Dolphins finished the 2022 NFL regular season with a 9-8 record, earning a wild card playoff berth. The team heads to New York this weekend to face the Buffalo Bills in the third meeting of the year between the AFC East rivals. It was a roller coaster of a year for the Dolphins, who started the season with a three-game winning streak, followed by a three-game losing streak. They then won their next five games before losing five in a row. They then went into Week 18 needing a win and some help to make the playoffs, pulling off exactly what they needed to make the postseason for the first time since 2016.

The season included some great performances from players, some disappointing moments, and, of course, injuries. How did Miami’s individual performances stack up against the rest of the league? I am glad I asked – because that is what you will find below. Here are the Dolphins’ statistical performances this year:
