Tua Tagovailoa Will Target Tyreek Hill Early and Often If Eli Apple Is Guarding Him

Cincinnati hosts Miami on Thursday night.

CINCINNATI — Tyreek Hill called out Eli Apple earlier this week. Tua Tagovailoa had his receivers back when asked about targeting the speedster in 1-on-1 situations. 

"If Tyreek is matched up with him and we call a play for Tyreek and it's 1-on-1, I'm giving Tyreek a shot," Tagovailoa said. "Just know that he is getting the ball."

Apple and Hill faced each other in two games last season when the Bengals beat the Chiefs. Cincinnati held him to 13 receptions for 118 yards and one touchdown in two games. 

It sounds like the Dolphins are hoping Apple is one-on-one with Hill on Thursday night. 

"I can't wait to go against Eli Apple, man," Hill said on Sunday. "I owe you, boy. I owe you. I'm here. The Cheetah is here."

Kickoff is at 8:15 pm ET. For more on the matchup, including our staff predictions, go here. For more on the Bengals, watch the video below and subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
