Patrick Mahomes Praises Tua Tagovailoa for His ‘Veteran Mindset’

December 14, 2020 11:50 pm

Kansas City Chiefs‘ star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, after winning 33-27 over Miami Dolphins, praised Tua Tagovailoa on camera on Sunday.

Tagovailoa completed 300 passing yards for the very first time in his career. In the match against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, he went for 28-of-48 passes for 316 yards.

Over the course of the entire game, he ran for 24 yards, scored 2 touchdowns, and recorded 1 interception.

“It’s a bright future for the Miami Dolphins, hopefully not too bright,” said City Chief’s star quarterback Patrick Mahomes about the Dolphin’s quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Even though the Tagovailoa and Dolphins did not win it this Sunday, still they are a shocker. Many expected them to be at the bottom. There were doubts about whether Tagovailoa could even play because of his hip injury.

The Dolphins’ quarterback playing was a shocker because he was still recovering from a dislocated hip. The Chiefs’ star quarterback appreciated the overall improvement shown by the Dolphins.

“I’m feeling, week after week and so it’s a good football team that they’ll probably be in the playoffs and the team though, will be a hard team to take out in the playoffs,” Mahomes told the reporters.

The Dolphins’ fate rests in their own hands

The Dolphins are still very much in the game. They have brilliant chances of earning themselves a wild card berth in the AFC. Besides, their record is pretty strong so far.

This was their 2nd loss out of the 6 they have played ever since they made Tagovailoa the quarterback. It was difficult for him because he didn’t reach 100 passing yards twice. But that wasn’t quite possible because of his lengthy layoff.

The Dolphins might have lost on Sunday, but they gave a pretty tough fight to the Chiefs. From here on, their fate lies in their own hands.

As of now, they can claim their playoff spot as early as Week 16. All they need is to do is emerge victorious in their next 2 matches against the New England Patriots and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Lastly, they need the Cleveland Browns to defeat the Baltimore Ravens on Monday. But even if the Ravens win, the Dolphins still have a 70% chance of making it to the Playoffs.

It’s way too early to say that the Miami Dolphins would be a strong AFC title challenger, as the Kansas City Chiefs are gearing up with Patrick Mahomes. But the Dolphins are certainly not out of the contention for the title, considering their vibrant resurgence.
