Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa benched for Ryan Fitzpatrick in 20-13 loss to Broncos

Die Miami Dolphins brought in quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hoping for some magic, but they fell just short in their 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos op Sondag, putting an end to their five-game winning streak.

Alhoewel Tua Tagovailoa came away with victories in his first three career starts, the rookie quarterback was benched in favor of Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter.

After the game, head coach Brian Flores said that Tagovailoa was not injured when he was sacked by Broncos defensive end Bradley Chubb, in plaas daarvan, he was benched for his poor performance and Fitzpatrick gave the team the best chance to win at that point and time.

Tagovailoa is still the starter moving forward for the Dolphins, who will take on the winless New York Jets in Week 12.

The Broncos prevented Tagovailoa from becoming just the second rookie in the past 40 years to win his first four starts, and they sacked him a half-dozen times along the way. Fitzpatrick came into the game for the Dolphins when they were down 10 punte. He managed to march them down the field, and kicker Jason Sanders nailed a field goal to make it a one-score deficit.
