The Dolphins improved to 2–0 on the season with a win over the Patriots in New England on Sunday night. After the victory, star wide receiver Tyreek Hill gave a scathing review of the crowd at Gillette Stadium.
Speaking to reporters, Hill boldly called Patriots fans “some of the worst in the NFL.”
“Those fans are some of the worst in the NFL, and I’m gonna stand on that. Because they’re real nasty, and some of the things they were saying, I wouldn’t say in church,” said Hill, via Henry McKenna of FOX Sports.
“It felt great to wave goodbye to the fans, and I’d do it again. Bye!” added Hill, while making a waving gesture.

The 29-year-old caught five passes in Sunday’s win, recording 40 yards and a touchdown, his third of the year. While his team was enjoying a convincing victory on the field, Hill claims Patriots fans were giving him an earful and using some rather inhospitable language.
While he didn’t share precisely what was said, Hill made clear he stood by his assessment of the fanbase.
The AFC East rivals will square off again in Week 8 on Oct. 29 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
