The Miami Dolphins are turning back the calendar for just a few days — they’re treating their current search for a viable interior defensive linemen much like how the team handled every roster transaction in 2019: with no stone left unturned.
There are no shortage of opinions on the Miami Dolphins’ decision to make a change at quarterback. Sitting at 3-3 and with all of the team’s goals this season sitting ahead of them, changing quarterbacks from the beloved Ryan Fitzpatrick to rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa offers a fascinating turn for this Dolphins team.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick found himself in rare territory on Sunday, and now he’s sharing his thoughts about how it all went down. Fitzpatrick completed 18 of 27 passes he attempted, for 191 yards, with three touchdowns, in Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Fitzpatrick's confusion over the timing of his relegation to the bench is understandable. He completed 22-of-28 passes with three touchdowns in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 11 and then tossed three more TDs in last Sunday's shutout victory over division foes the New York Jets.
With Miami sitting second in the AFC East, ahead of the New England Patriots, Tagovailoa will have the opportunity to do something special -- get the Dolphins into the postseason for the first time since 2016.
Riding a two game winning streak that included a win on the road against the defending NFC Champion 49ers, followed by a shutout win at home over the Jets, has the Miami Dolphins riding high into their Week 6 bye, just one game behind first place Buffalo.
