Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is impressing in a big way in only his second career start. Tua has completed 18 of 24 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns while scrambling for 36 yards. Miami is tied with the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9 thanks in large part to Tua.

The rookie has made some rookie-like mistakes, including nearly turning the ball over on a throw away attempt. He lucked out on review, but it was the kind of mistake you come to expect from a rookie QB. However, he’s more than made up for the mistakes including the drive that tied the game at 31.
