Tua Tagovailoa returned to the starting role this week after spending the last three games on injured reserved while dealing with a rib injury. Miami suffered their fifth-straight loss of the season, as the Jacksonville Jaguars defeated them 23-20 on a last-second field goal.
The quarterback looked decent in his return, completing 33-of-47 pass attempts (70%) for 329 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The interception was horrendous, but there weren’t many mistakes to point out.
After the game, Tagovailoa was candid with the media.
“It doesn’t matter how I played,” Tagovailoa said fighting back tears. “We lost. Right now, it’s tough in the locker room.”
This has to be an emotional time for the quarterback who has seen his team drop to 1-5 while his job, the coaches’ jobs, and the general manager’s job are all up in the air.
He has to continue to lead this team and be part of the group that attempts to turn the season around, or he may find himself without a starting opportunity.
