5 best quarterbacks the Miami Dolphins will face in 2022
Miami Dolphins opposing QB #3: Joe Burrow
Another player that Tagovailoa will be linked with is Joe Burrow, though not as directly.
Burrow was the number one overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and was the consensus first quarterback off of the board before Tua and Herbert. After sustaining an injury in his rookie campaign, the LSU product brought his team all the way to the Super Bowl last season, where he and the Bengals fell short to the Los Angeles Rams.
Despite the loss, Burrow cemented himself as one of the legit, young gunslingers in the league, someone that the Dolphins would probably like to have under center right now.
And apparently, they tried. There is still plenty to be examined in the lawsuit from former head coach Brian Flores, but there is speculation that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was on board with purposely losing games in order to get a higher draft pick, which may have ended up being Burrow.
But the cards fell as they did and Miami has Tagovailoa as their starting quarterback with a chance to prove himself to the division, conference, and the rest of the league. The match up between the Dolphins and Bengals will take place up north this coming season, and the game could wind up being extremely meaningful in the AFC playoff race when all is said and done.
