It was a battle of the rookie quarterbacks with Tua Tagovailoa coming away with the team victory. The Dolphins are on a 5 game win streak and Tua has won his first three games since taking over the starting job at quarterback. We also saw another rookie have a big game as Salvon Ahmed handled the lead back duties while also scoring his first rushing touchdown. The Dolphins will be traveling to Denver next Sunday to take on the Broncos and look to add another win to their record.
