#2: Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa did not have a great game overall on his return, but he did start off the game right where he had left off, being sharp, accurate, and decisive with his throws and marching his offense down to the endzone.

Unfortunately, Tagovailoa was not able to keep this same pace in the 2nd half, the Steelers defense made adjustments and it kept Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins away from the endzone. Tua looked rusty, which is to be expected after being out almost a month.

Tua Tagovailoa vs Steelers – by the numbers:

  • 21/35 (60%)
  • 261 Yards
  • 1 TD
  • 0 INT
  • 92.7 Rating

But most importantly Tua showed that DAWG when he attempted to rush and on 2 occasions tried to truck through the defender. And also making some big boy throws over the middle:

Yes, the game was not perfect but through the rust, he showed why the team is 4-0 this season with Tua, and 0-3 this season without him.
