Tua Leads Big Fins Comeback, Jones Dominates Bears, Cards Beat Raiders In OT

Jonathan Grant | September 19th, 2022

Tua Tagovailoa has always had huge potential. From the moment he stepped onto the field for the Alabama Crimson Tide, it was obvious that he could be a huge star in the NFL. Things had been a little slow up until Sunday, but that all changed as he put on the performance of his short career to lead the Miami Dolphins to a thrilling 42-38 come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens. Down 28-7 at the half and 35-14 after three, it appeared it was all but over until ‘Tua Time’ took over. The quarterback masterminded a stunning four touchdown drives in the last 15 minutes, with the final one coming with just 14 seconds left in the game to give them a lead for the first time all day. All in all, Tua ended up going 36-50 for 469 yards and two TD’s.

Opposite number Lamar Jackson finished with 318 yards through the air and over 100 on the ground with three total touchdowns in defeat. Elsewhere, Aaron Jones was downright dominant for the Green Bay Packers as they picked up a 27-10 win at home to the Chicago Bears. The running back rushed the ball 15 times for 132 yards and a TD and also had a receiving touchdown, too, that helped propel them to the win on Sunday Night Football. The defense was also very good, giving up just 228 yards of total offense while QB Aaron Rodgers threw two TD tosses. In other action, Kyler Murray produced some magic for the Arizona Cardinals as they defeated the Las Vegas Raiders 29-23 in overtime on the road. Down 20-0 at the half, the Cards staged a comeback as Murray rumbled into the endzone as time elapsed in the fourth to force OT. A 59-yard fumble return by Byron Murphy ended up being the winning moment in the extra period, sending his team to a 1-1 record thus far.
