The Miami Dolphins’ season of Super Bowl contention ended with doubts around quarterback Tua Tagovailoa as they were defeated 26-7 by the Kansas City Chiefs at a freezing-cold Arrowhead on Saturday.

As the temperature dropped in Kansas City, so did the danger of a Tagovailoa-led attack that has plagued opponents with its speed and ingenuity for much of the season.

Tagovailoa, who led the NFL in passing yards during the regular season, struggled against Steve Spagnuolo’s powerful Chiefs defense, finishing 20 of 39 for 199 yards, a touchdown throw to Tyreek Hill of 53 yards, and an interception.

While Mike McDaniel has geared his approach particularly around the 25-year-old, Miami’s poor season provides for an interesting recap as they attempt to move on in 2024.

“I think they will pay him, but I still don’t think he is enough,” Sky Sports NFL’s Phoebe Schecter remarked. “You look at some of the other quarterbacks in the league, even just in that division, and there’s no comparison between Tua and Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers.”

When you create these teams, you have to be seeking to defeat those people and choose someone to compete with Patrick Mahomes, and Tua has never been there.

“Once you’re off his first read you are kind of stuck and he doesn’t have the mobility of other quarterbacks.
