In his third season, Tagovailoa is playing at an MVP-caliber level, completing 71% of his passes for 2,265 yards, 18 touchdowns, and three interceptions leading Miami to a 7-3 record. Moreover, the Dolphins have not lost a game that Tua has started and finished this season (7-0).
Tua was first awarded this honor back in week two for his impressive performance vs. the Baltimore Ravens. In that game, Tagovailoa threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns in a 42-38 come-from-behind win.
The next FedEx Air Player of the Week award that Tua would receive came in week ten vs. the Detroit Lions. Tua completed 80% of his passes for 382 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions in a 31-27 win over Detroit. The next week, he followed that up with a 302-yard and 3-touchdown performance vs. the Bears in Week 9.
And then last week vs. the Cleveland Browns, Tua became the second player in Dolphins franchise history to finish three games back-to-back-to-back with three touchdown passes. He also became the only player in NFL history to complete three consecutive games with a 135+ % passer rating.
Before last weekend, there had only been one QB in @MiamiDolphins history to have 3+ passing TDs in three consecutive games.— Pro Football Hall of Fame (@ProFootballHOF) November 16, 2022
