Tua Tagovailoa led the Miami Dolphins to another win on Sunday afternoon.
The Dolphins faced the Houston Texans at Hardrock Stadium in Miami. The team dropped 30 points on the Texans in the first half and held their opponents scoreless. The game ended with a 30-15 victory for Miami, which moves their win-loss record to 8-3.
According to ESPN, Tagovailoa threw one touchdown pass and completed 22 of 36 passes for a total of 299 yards. Unfortunately, CBS Sports reports that the quarterback ended his three-game streak of multi-touchdown efforts.
Tagovailoa was concerned about the team’s form as the Dolphins had a bye week before their game against the Texans.
“It’s most definitely really important for us to stay locked in,” Tagovailoa said at a press conference last Wednesday, AL.com reports. “We understand that we’ve had a bye and now Thanksgiving is coming up, guys have family members coming in town, and you can get lost with not doing things that you would normally do on a weekly basis where maybe I’ll take this day off because it’s Thanksgiving and guys aren’t studying.”
It appears it wasn’t difficult for the Dolphins to jump back in. They are now tied for first place in the AFC East with the Buffalo Bills. Next week they will face the 49ers away from home.
