There were quite a few people sporting Dan Marino shirts among the scattered Miami Dolphins supporters there on this Sunday afternoon. Since Marino last appeared on the field, a long time has passed since the Dolphins seemed capable of scoring whenever and from wherever they were on the field.
Tagovailoa gave the Miami Dolphins what Marino accomplished on Sunday by tossing for 469 yards and six touchdowns to lead the team back from a three-touchdown fourth-quarter deficit for a surprising 42-38 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. This comeback is enormous.
Coach Mike McDaniel hoped that Tua would now finally start to pay attention to him. “That is to say, it is great to be critical of oneself. He holds himself to a high level. He put the recent play behind him and focused on his obligations to his teammates. He taught his teammates a lot about himself, and I believe he also learnt something about them.”
