After getting strip-sacked by Aaron Darnold on just his second career snap, Tua Tagovailoa threw his first career NFL touchdown pass to Devante Parker. The three-yard pass pulled the score even with the Los Angeles Rams and the kid can finally relax. The big one’s out the way.
Takes some pressure off the fifth overall pick having his first NFL touchdown in the books. In the days of social media, Tua likely felt pressure building after forking over the football pretty much immediately in his debut. For those watching, the first-year quarterback looks better than Jared Goff if we’re being honest. Los Angeles continues to throw the football unsuccessfully, while the game plan for Tua is to play to his strengths: Roll outs.
Overall Tua looks solid and it’ll be a storm of momentum if he can pull of this win against the Rams defense at home.
