On a 3rd and goal trailing late in the first quarter, Tua’s first NFL touchdown was very reminiscent of his 87 TDS at the University of Alabama. Timely, precise, and much needed. A perfect throw right to the outside shoulder of Davonte Parker on a quick slant seemed to ignite the whole team as both offensive and defensive players went out of the way to congratulate him on the milestone.
His drive only lasted 5 plays but produced 19-yards and the final first down needed to end the game in the Dolphins favor. Tagovailoa completed both of his passing attempts for a total of nine yards passing while looking comfortable in his limited action.
The Miami Dolphins held their first team scrimmage this week, and with the first team offense came Tua Tagovailoa. Tua was forced to step in for Ryan Fitzpatrick after the 15-year vet had to exit the scrimmage due to the passing of his mother earlier in the day.
