It was a shock to the NFL community when the Dolphins named Tagovailoa the starter after Ryan Fitzpatrick had averaged 7.8 yards per attempt with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions through six games. The team was one game out of first place, but this was apparently the week to install the lefty under center. They're throwing him into the fire against the Rams, too. They're coming off a game in which they pressured Nick Foles on 45.5 percent of his dropbacks, so they're firing on all cylinders. As a whole, the Rams have allowed their opponents 17.7 points per game, which is the second-lowest number in the NFL behind only the Ravens. The 6.49 yards per attempt they've allowed ranks as the second-lowest number in the league, while the 3.15 percent touchdown-rate also ranks as the second-lowest in the league. This is going to be a tough matchup for Tagovailoa in his first NFL start. There are better streaming options.
