Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa didn’t exactly have the best game of his career in their Week 13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.
The former first-round pick completed just 54.6% of his attempts for 295 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw interceptions and was strip-sacked during the fourth quarter on a play that resulted in a 49ers’ touchdown.
After the game, Tagovailoa spoke with the media about his performance, and he took a lot of the blame on himself.
“It sucks that we didn’t come out and do what we wanted to do, collectively, as a team,” Tagovailoa said. “Obviously, it starts with me offensively, turnovers with third-downs, communication errors, in that retrospect, it’s hard to win a game when you’re not on your Ps-and-Qs, and you’re not dialed in. A lot of that has to do with just understanding what we’re trying to accomplish and what we’re trying to do.”
The execution wasn’t up to anyone’s standards, including the quarterback himself.
“No one really to blame but myself,” Tagovailoa said.
It was clear to see how much the loss affected him, and it’s great to see that type of accountability from the leader of the football team.
