Sportsman of the Week Ending 9/18/2022


One of the surprise teams in the 2022 NFL season so far is the Miami Dolphins.  They may have turned the corner with their franchise QB and former 1st round (5th overall) pick Tua Tagovailoa.  Having built some offensive weapons around him Tagovailoa suddenly is filling the superstar shoes he aspired to fill.  This week in what may be a key AFC matchup against North Division favorite Baltimore Ravens, he outdueled former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.  Tagovailoa hit 36 of 50 passes for an eyebrow raising 469 yards and 6 TDs (both career highs, his first more than 375 / 6).  He had 3 TDs in the 4th quarter, fueling a 14-point 4th quarter (21-point overall) comeback and scoring with 14s left.  Winner.  And Sportsman of the Week!
