That slate includes Miami’s 3-1 record to start their 2022 season.
However, his record will be frozen for a while after he was ruled out of their Week 5 game against the New York Jets.
But despite his absence, the former Alabama standout is already playing at a premiere level through the first quarter of their present campaign.

Palm Beach Post journalist Joe Schad tweeted, “After four weeks, Tua Tagovailoa leads the NFL with a 109.9 passer rating, just ahead of Patrick Mahomes, Geno Smith, Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert, and Josh Allen. #MiamiDolphins #FinsUp”
He started the season with a 104.4 passer rating against the New England Patriots.
A week later, his rating versus the Baltimore Ravens was 124.1 after completing 36 passes for 469 yards and six touchdowns.
Tagovailoa had a 123.8 rating in Week 3 against the Bills.
His rating took a hit in Week 4 with a 52.7, but that’s not the most pressing matter at hand.
Tagovailoa Shouldn’t Have Been Playing
Tagovailoa shouldn’t have earned that tenth victory for now because he was obviously not fit to play.
He was knocked down in their game against the Bills and had difficulty standing up.
Yet somehow, he was cleared to play against the Bengals, and disaster struck after he absorbed a sack from Josh Tupou.
He was slow to get up, and his fingers were aligned in awkward positions.
As a result, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant that evaluated Tagovailoa for concussion was fired.
The investigation of the NFL Players Association continues, and more individuals might get sanctioned because of this incident.
Meanwhile, Tagovailoa’s return remains uncertain, given that he had two concussion incidents in less than a week.
