Tua Tagovailoa makes his NFL debut

The Dolphins didn’t give quarterback Tua Tagovailoa any playing time in their Week Five rout of the 49ers, but they are giving him a look in this week’s rout of the Jets.

Tagovailoa entered the game with under three minutes to play and the Dolphins leading 24-0. It’s his first NFL regular season action and it is also his first game action of any kind since injuring his hip at Alabama last season.

It will be a brief look for the first-round pick, but he could see more playing time if the team continues on a run of lopsided wins in the weeks to come.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was 18-of-27 for 191 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions to put the Dolphins on the path to a 3-3 record. He’ll almost certainly remain the starter when the team returns from its bye to face the Rams in Week Eight.
