"It seemed like pursuing focuses, pursuing a record, that is not the thing we came here to do. That doesn't have an orientation on the general season result," Dolphins lead trainer Mike McDaniel said. " Multiple times out of 10 you surrender and stoop down in those circumstances. Since there was a feasible record, that was cool, yet the message I figured it would send wasn't in accordance with how I view things."

"This doesn't come close to anything that I've seen or been a piece of," Tagovailoa said. " It simply discusses the versatility of our group. Despite the fact that we were up going into halftime, I'm extremely pleased with the folks and the manner in which they kept on playing. Nobody took their foot off the gas, everybody proceeded to play and that is the outcome that we got."
In the interim, Dolphins running backs Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane consolidated for a sum of eight scores as Miami broke an establishment scoring record by 15.
Achane completed the game with 203 hurrying yards on 18 conveys, while Mostert counted 142 absolute yards.

Miami's 726 all out yards establishes an establishment standard for most yards ever in a game.
Mustangs lead trainer Sean Payton portrayed the game as "humiliating" and "intense to watch."
"it would be one thing to agree, 'Hello, we will get on to the following game,' however we need to watch that tape, thus tomorrow will be extreme for a great deal of players - intense for us, as well, as mentors," Payton added.
Later in the news gathering, Payton spoke harshly to a going over some journalist of the details of the memorable misfortune as he set up his inquiry.
