If the Dolphins beat the Broncos on Sunday, Tua Tagovailoa will join Ben Rotlisberger in an exclusive company.
The win in Miami will be the Dolphins’ fourth win in four starts for Tagovailoa, and the Dolphins will join the Roethlisberger 2004 Steelers as the only teams in the last 40 years to win their first four games with a quarterback.
Before Roethlisberger, the last quarterback to win his first four starts was Phil Sims with the 1979 Giants. This team started 0-5 with Joe Pisarchik and Randy Dean in quarterback before turning to Sims and winning four in a row before finally finishing 6-10.
The Dolphins were 3-3 when they put Ryan Fitzpatrick to Tagovailoa and are now 6-3, and with the games against the Broncos, Jets and Bengals it’s easy to see them improve to 9-3 and be contenders for the playoffs down the field. . When coach Brian Flores turned to Tagovailoa, some thought he was giving up the season. But the Dolphins win with Tagovailoa at the helm.
