Tua Tagovailoa’s stellar performances add to MVP argument

The NFL is just over halfway through the season and Miami Dolphins fans believe their quarterback is an MVP contender.

On Sunday night, the Miami crowd could be heard chanting MVP multiple times for Tua Tagovailoa throughout the Dolphins’ game against the Cleveland Browns, ESPN reports.

The Dolphins beat the Browns 39-17. Tagovailoa threw three touch downs and completed 25 of 32 attempted passes for a total of 285 yards. According to ESPN, Miami was not forced to punt a single time in the entire game.

Many analysts and fans believe Tagovailoa’s strong performances throughout the season make him a strong contender for MVP. According to The Athletic, he has jumped to 4th in the 2022 NFL MVP betting odds. He currently ranks first in passer ratings among all NFL quarterbacks.

The season has not been without hardships for Tagovailoa. In late September, he suffered two head injuries in close succession, prompting the NFL to re-examine its concussion protocol.

Prior to the injuries, several NFL analysts felt that Tagovailoa had a low ceiling. Many believed he was not capable of completing deep passes, but that has not been the case this season.

“I’ve grown a lot with the deep balls, huh? Don’t we think?” he said at the end of a media session in Week 9, according to ESPN. “That was probably a subtle jab, but it was a jab.”

Game after game, Tagovailao is proving his doubters wrong.
