QB Tua Tagovailoa led the Miami Dolphins past the Carolina Panthers with a 33-10 victory on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. Tagovailoa completed 27 of 31 passes for 230 passing yards and one touchdown to help extended the Dolphins’ win streak to four-consecutive games. Rookie linebacker Jaelan Phillips led the Dolphins defense with three sacks. Xavien Howard, Nik Needham and Jevon Holland each logged interceptions in the win.
Meanwhile, Panthers’ Cam Newton completed just 5 of 21 passes for 92 yards and two interceptions in the loss. His 5.8 passer rating from the performance is a career-low. “We lost footing early,” Newton said. “We just gotta find ways to get back on track. Nothing they did was out of the ordinary. It just comes down to execution.”
