Tua Tagovailoa: No added pressure this week

#Dolphins head coach #Brian #Flores made the decision to pull quarterback #Tua #Tagovailoa in the second half of last #Saturday’s game against the #Raiders and the move to #Ryan #Fitzpatrick paid off with a last second victory.

The win put the #Dolphins in position to clinch a playoff berth with a win over the #Bills this #Sunday and #Flores didn’t hesitate before naming #Tagovailoa as the starter for that game. #It’s a decision ripe for second-guessing given how things played out last weekend, but the first-round pick says neither that circumstance nor the looming playoff berth is an added burden.

“I’d say for me there’s really no extra, added pressure,” #Tagovailoa said, via #Adam #Beasley of the #Miami #Herald. “The expectation for myself is very high in how I perform and how I go out there and try to lead the guys to victory. #Obviously, this past weekend, I didn’t play to that standard. #It’s more so me knowing that we’ve got to go out here and get the job done. #If you can’t get the job done, then that’s on you. #That’s on no one else.”

#Tagovailoa said the communication between coaches and players has been good and that he’s confident that everything is being done with “the best interest” of the team in mind. #If the best interest of the team is another quarterback change that works out, #Flores will have another call to make in the #Wild #Card round.
