Tyreek Hill was the standout performer during Sunday’s win in Florida

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson singled out Tyreek Hill for special praise after his record-breaking display in Week 12.

“I really didn’t understand, and Todd Bowles knows this. He knows, he knows better as a defensive coordinator. You don’t allow guys like Tyreek Hill to have free access and just run down the field and repeat it with no one touching him.

“Playing man to man without real help or without jamming him at the line of scrimmage, you’re going to lose that battle every single time. The way that you defeat the Kansas City Chiefs is you have to play physical.

“And hard like the Raiders, you got to get up and challenge the deal. So, therefore, when Patrick Mahomes goes to throw the football, he knows that it’s going to be tough and I got to get the ball out there, my guys are going to be rerouted.

“But when you allow them to just run up and down the field, it’s ridiculous and on top of that, it was great game planning by Eric Bieniemy to understand that the guys that were covering Tyreek Hill couldn’t (keep up with him).

“But defensively, the Bucs didn’t do enough,” Johnson said on Around the NFL podcast.
