NFL: Preseason-Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Fitzpatrick did not help himself in the Dolphins quarterback competition last night. The first team offense was dreadful and it wasn’t till the second half that Fitzpatrick finally threw a touchdown. Josh Rosen came out on his first drive and delivered a 99 yard touchdown drive with some impressive throws. It was Fitzpatrick’s job to lose and Rosen put up a heck of a fight and should honestly be the team’s starter. The Dolphins have a tough four game stretch to the season and I can totally understand Fitzpatrick starting those. But Rosen has proven he is the better quarterback on this roster.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
