Dolphins elevate Terron Armstead as key offensive asset ahead of first matchup since Tyreek Hill trade

Turning up the No.1 seed in their division, the Miami Dolphins have been resolute to take the Super Bowl trophy home since the start of the season. Recording 6-2, the second-best record of the NFL after eight weeks, the team is eagerly looking forward to encountering the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs in their upcoming contest. 

In concern of their forthcoming battle, the Dolphins has already geared up with all of their offensive and defensive firearms. Yet, before the matchup, they have bolstered their offense with another weapon, in case they might fall short of confronting Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce’s team.

Dolphins make strategic move activating Terron Armstead for Chiefs game

Sitting at the pinnacle of success regarding their offense which allowed just 12 sacks through eight games, the Miami-based team’s eyes are surely on beating the Chiefs by hook or by crook. 

Hence, they came up with a major strategic decision, activating their left tackle Terron Armstead off the injured reserve on Saturday. Armstead was projected to be out of the team roster after he went through a knee injury in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. Prior to that, he wasn’t working out much this week and was marked as dubious for the matchup against the Chiefs.

Wide receiver River Cracraft was also in line to be activated, yet the Dolphins could not make this move happen. This season, the Armstead and Williams duo appeared in only one game, in which the Dolphins knocked the Denver Broncos down by 50 points. 

Chiefs and Dolphins gear up for first face-off since Tyreek Hill’s trade

Being almost fully dependent on Patrick Mahomes and Taylor Swift’s rumored boyfriend Kelce for their formidable offense, last season the Chiefs shipped their vet receiver Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins. A large bounty of draft picks was exchanged for the deal, including fourth- and sixth-round picks in the 2023 draft in addition to a 2022 first-round pick (No. 29), second-round pick (No. 50), and fourth-round pick.

Nevertheless, since the highly talked trade, the Dolphins are going to face the Chiefs with Mahomes’ ex-teammate for the first time, per BVM Sports. The Hill-less Chiefs team clinched the Super Bowl trophy last season, proving their worth without their seasoned offensive hero while Hill also presented himself as a valuable asset for the Miami team.

Tyreek already boasted a stunning 902 receiving yards and is just 98 yards shy of hitting 1,000 for the season and added another milestone to his Dolphins’ resume.

The match would surely be an extraordinary one for the NFL community like the Philadelphia Eagles vs Dolphins game. Nevertheless, one thing may raise concern amid the Dolphins fans as the team already arose as a victim of controversial decisions of referees against the Eagles, while in this regard, the Chiefs were favored by the referees against the Jets.

Who do you think will come out as the winner, advancing another step towards the Lombardi Trophy?
