The Miami Dolphins have had a dry spell throughout their last three matches because of the sidelined star quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. The 2020 NFL Draft No. 5 pick picked up a rib fracture early in his week 2 loss against the Buffalo Bills.

Jacoby Brissett then took the QB spot, because of which the Dolphins struggled to seal the deal against the Raiders, Colts and the Buccaneers, giving them a 1-4 depressing stance in the league. However, with the return of Tua, the Dolphins have got the boost it most longed for.

Tua Tagovailoa returns with a bang

Tua Tagovailoa is showcasing some phenomenal athletic abilities in London in his first game after his return. The Miami star quarterback looks sharper than ever as he hurls the ball for his first touchdown pass in his first possession. He capped the opening drive with a 6-yard touchdown pass to his fellow Alabama alumni Jaylen Waddle.

However, the 23-year-old looked even sharper when he scrambled a 7 yard gain to pick up a first down deep inside the Jaguars’ zone. Tua has taken over the field in London as if he has a purpose to serve like he means business. His purpose, however, is to cover up the deficit created because of his absence, and he seems to do it very well.
