Tua Tagovailoa was due this type of day. Since arriving in Miami as their first-round draft choice three years ago, he has had to deal with injuries, multiple offensive coordinators, and many doubters. Well, doubt no more because Tua proved Sunday why the Dolphins made him their franchise quarterback.
In their 42-38 win, Tagovailoa threw for six touchdown passes, including the game-winner to former Alabama teammate Jaylen Waddle. Tagovailoa would end up passing for nearly 500 yards and six touchdowns and may have finally shut up his doubters who didn’t think he would be a good NFL quarterback.
The Tagovailoa supporters were in full force after the young quarterback’s come-from-behind victory. At one point, the Dolphins were behind 21 points, but then Tagovailoa got hot and the Dolphins had a 28 point fourth quarter to get the victory.
DOLPHINS! 28 POINTS IN THE 4TH QUARTER FOR THE INSANE COMEBACK VICTORY IN BALTIMORE!

After this performance, a lot of people are saying that Tagovailoa has shut up his critics.
Tua Tagovailoa has 6 touchdown passes today, including the go ahead score with 14 seconds left. Everyone can shut up now. This has been an insane game by Tua.
