Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his NFL debut Sunday during a 24-0 win over the New York Jets.
Fans have been clamoring for Tua ever since he was picked fifth overall in the 2020 NFL draft, and he finally saw some action against the Jets. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Obviously, Tua isn’t going to likely be starting anytime soon, but fans have now seen him sling the rock in the NFL.
He’s one of the most hyped rookies in recent memory, but the Dolphins are simply competitive right now to start him over Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Tua Tagovailoa went back to the field and he’s sitting around the 15-yard-line in full uniform. It looks like he’s soaking this moment in.

When will Tua take over the starting role from Fitzpatrick? I have no idea. It’s obviously coming eventually, but there’s no need to rush it as long as the Dolphins are winning.
First of many! ???? @Tua

He’ll get his shot when it comes, but he’s finally cut his teeth on the field. Now, we wait to see how long it is before it’s 100% Tua’s show in Miami.
