This was expected sometime in the near future and isn’t a major shocker to those who have watched the past two performances from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Yes, the team won both of his past two games and did so in style. The big issue was the poor showings in the second half and the way Fitz was attempting to force the ball.
Just a day ago in the Jets recap article, we mentioned that Tua time was coming soon even though he took just a few snaps at the end of the game. Now that prediction has panned out. Get ready, because coverage after the bye week just got more interesting.
The Dolphins have yet to make an official announcement via Twitter, but that is expected. However, multiple outlets have confirmed this news.
