MIAMI (BVM) — Tyreek Hill and Micah Parsons are two of the best players in the NFL and over the last few days, both have taken shots at each other over social media.
Hill and the Miami Dolphins were coming off a Week 2 victory against the New England Patriots and during the game, Hill made a block on Patriots linebacker Josh Uche, which prompted Hill to call out Parsons.

“Micah Parsons, when we play you on Dec. 25, on Christmas Day, I have a present for you, my boy,” Hill said on his podcast, “It Needed To Be Said.” “You better watch your back because I am going to blindside you. I’m [going to] show you that game who the real lion is because I said, ‘I’m the cheetah and I’m the lion.’”
Parsons saw the clip and responded to Hill on his podcast, “The Edge.”
“Tyreek, please never say you’re a lion again,” Parsons said. “Just stick to ‘The Cheetah’ brother. You don’t want nothing to do with this lion work … At least you did say you a baby lion, to me, you’re a cub, brother.”
The Dolphins are coming off a 70-20 rout of the Denver Broncos and Hill recorded nine catches for 157 yards and one touchdown, but Parsons and the Dallas Cowboys were upset by the Arizona Cardinals and he responded to Hill again.
“I’m letting you know there’s a big difference between me and those other guys that you [are] coming off the edge with,” Parsons said. “Listen Tyreek, if I see you coming my way, I’m sending you to the tent.”
The matchup on Christmas Day will be just the 16th time the Cowboys and Dolphins meet and in the last four games, Dallas has handed Miami a loss, the most recent coming in 2019, where the Cowboys won 31-6.
Both Hill and Parsons may continue the online banter, but as the NFL season steams ahead, the anticipation of the matchup between two of the best teams, through Week 3, is continuing to rise.
