Quiet in Sunday's win
Tagovailoa completed 15 of 22 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown and gained 38 rushing yards on five carries in Sunday's 33-24 win over the Patriots.
Aside from a seven-yard TD strike to Jaylen Waddle in the first quarter, Tagovailoa didn't contribute much to the Dolphins' victory, instead allowing Duke Johnson and the defense to do most of the heavy lifting. The second-year QB failed to reach 200 passing yards in three of his last four games this season, wrapping up the campaign with a sharp 67.8 percent completion rate but far more pedestrian 17:10 TD:INT and 2,762 passing yards through 14 games, and Tua may not have done enough to dissuade the Dolphins from bringing in competition, or even an outright replacement for him, this offseason.
