Russell Wilson QB vs. Tua Tagovailoa QB
Russell Wilson has quickly made an impressionful transition to the Denver Broncos, showing why he deserves recognition among NFL quarterbacks despite their slow start. Wilson boasts an impressive 68.2% completion rate and already thrown for 485 yards and five touchdowns through just two games; unfortunately his offensive line has failed him significantly, leading to 9 sacks thus far and prompting questions as to how well he will handle Miami’s defense in high-pressure scenarios. Mobility and ability to make plays out of the pocket are his forte but increasing sack numbers suggest otherwise; they may struggle when Dolphins penetrate Denver’s offensive line more effectively than expected.
Tua Tagovailoa of Miami has also made strides toward becoming an effective NFL starting quarterback, amassing 715 yards at 65.3% completion and 4 touchdowns while only being intercepted twice so far this season. His quick decision-making and precision throwing are impressive while ball security needs work; yet Miami’s offensive line appears more capable than Denver in providing protection; thus making Tagovailoa potentially exploit Denver’s defensive weaknesses by maintaining strong pocket presence while limiting turnovers.
