NFL: Preseason-Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

On the Miami Dolphins' first offensive play, Tua Tagovailoa threw an interception to Houston Texans linebacker, Denzel Perryman. It was the first time we have seen Tua throw a football in 8 months but he bounced back when the Dolphins were able to get the ball back. On the following drive, Tua drove the offense down for a 93-yard scoring drive topped off by a rushing touchdown from Raheem Mostert. The team also got some good quarterback play from Skylar Thompson, who is battling for that spot behind Tua.

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