The 3 game win streak was fun, but that sadly game to an end last night when the Miami Dolphins lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football. After a tough battle with the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, the Dolphins had a short week to prepare for this game and still had to travel. Nothing seemed to go right for the team and they just couldn’t make the plays to get the win. The Dolphins are going to have some extra time to rest up.

But the most important thing right now is the health of Tua Tagovailoa. We saw him sustain a reported back injury on Sunday and was cleared to play after going through the NFL concussion protocol. Last night, he took another big hit and there was no denying this time that he sustained a head injury and had to be taken to a local medical center. Thankfully he was discharged and would fly home with the team and is in the concussion protocol. You will not hear the end of this for awhile, as there is still an investigation going on about Sunday’s incident and there is going to be a ton of opinions on what went down this week.

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