Miami was just nine yards short of the all-time NFL record for most yards in a game. The Los Angeles Rams put up 735 against the New York Yanks in 1951. Miami had the most points scored since 1966 between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. The Redskins had 72 points in the game. The Chicago Bears scored 73 in 1940 against the Redskins.
Miami is the fourth team to score at least 70 points in a single NFL game. The total also set a franchise record – which was broken in the third quarter once they had 56 on the board.
Miami moved to 3-0 on the year and the Broncos fell to 0-3.
Russell Wilson was 23-of-38 with 306 passing yards, a touchdown and an interception. Courtland Sutton led the team with eight catches for 91 yards.
