Why the Miami Dolphins game on Sunday Night Football is a must-watch

5. The return of Tua Tagovailoa

It reads like a movie or fairy tale: the infamously injured quarterback makes his triumphant return, overcoming the odds and rejoining his team for a prime time contest in front of the nation. On the opposing sideline is his former head coach, with whom the quarterback was constantly at odds, and who was blamed for the stunted development of the pass thrower.

As if all of the negative chatter during the off-season wasn’t enough, Tua Tagovailoa will now have even more fuel to add to the fire that drives his comeback attempt. It will be his first game action in nearly a month, after lighting the league on fire with his performance through the first three contests, and he’ll be looking to get back to his winning ways beginning with the date with the Steelers.

Will having Flores on the opposing sideline be any added motivation? Tua will probably tell you that it won’t, but having success against an adversary always feels better, especially one who didn’t believe in you and gave you fewer chances to succeed. We’ll see who gets the upper hand on Sunday Night.
