Tua Tagovailoa's time in the NFL has arrived.
The Miami Dolphins will give the rookie quarterback his first start on Sunday when they face the Los Angeles Rams. Coach Brian Flores decided to hand Tagovailoa the reins despite Miami standing at 3-3 with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm. Playing last week for the first time since suffering a season-ending hip injury at Alabama last November, Tagovailoa had was 2-of-2 passing for 9 yards in a 24-0 win over the New York Jets.
Tagovailoa and the Dolphins will face a stiff test Sunday against the 5-2 Los Angeles Rams. Two-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald ranks second in the NFL with eight sacks so far this season, and the defense is second in the league in points allowed (17.7 per game).
