MIAMI, FLORIDA — Tua Tagovailoa becomes the first Miami Dolphins quarterback to win his first two career starts in 11 years as he out-dueled Kyler Murray in the desert.

Tagovailoa completed 20 of 28 passes for 248 yards and threw for two touchdowns in leading Miami to a huge 34-31 comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals. The Dolphins scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to pull off the upset, led by Tagovailoa’s game-tying 11-yard touchdown pass to Mack Hollins with 11:19 left that sparked the comeback.

This slugfest ultimately came down to kickers as Jason Sanders hit the winning 50-yard kick with 3:30 to play to give Miami a 34-31 lead. The Cardinals responded with a strong drive of their own but opted to play for the tie instead of going for it on fourth-and-1 at the Dolphins 31-yard line. Zane Gonzalez was short on his 49-yard attempt and the Dolphins got the first down they needed on a Tagovailoa sneak three plays later to seal the win.
