With a stunning performance in a wild showdown against the Ravens on Sunday, Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins put the NFL on notice with an electric come-from-behind victory in Baltimore.

The third-year quarterback, in the midst of a career day, punctuated his first signature NFL outing with a touchdown pass to Jaylen Waddle to lift Miami to a 42–38 win. The game-winning score added one final feather in Tagovailoa’s cap on a day where he also out-dueled a red-hot Lamar Jackson to bring his team back from a 28–7 halftime deficit in a hostile environment on the road.

When it was all said and done, Tagovailoa finished the day 36-of-50 for 469 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions while taking one sack. Jackson, meanwhile, turned in a monster game of his own in defeat, finishing 21-of-29 for 318 yards and three touchdowns to go with nine carries for 119 yards and an absurd 79-yard score in the third quarter.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Tagovailoa was asked to recall when he last had a game like this, and cited his final game at Alabama, when the former Crimson Tide star went for 418 yards and four touchdowns in a victorious shootout with LSU. He then described how it felt to have the offense click the way it did.
