Despite a few moments of promise, the return of Tua Tagovaiola ultimately ended in disappointment on Sunday as the Miami Dolphins fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-20 in London.

It was Tagovailoa’s first game back since injuring his ribs in the team’s Week 2 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. For not playing for four weeks, Tagovailoa did not appear rusty in his return as he completed 33-of-47 passes for 329 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

But a turnover on downs late in the fourth quarter led to a last-second Jaguars field goal giving the franchise its first win of the 2021 season.

Despite having a solid individual turnout, the game left only disappointment for the Dolphins as well as an emotional Tagovailoa who had tears in his eyes during the post-game press conference.

“To me, it doesn’t matter how I performed today,” Tagovailoa said. “We lost. It’s tough to kind of critique how I performed or how any of our guys performed. Right now, it’s tough in the locker room.”

The Dolphins will return home to Hard Rock Stadium and host the Falcons next Sunday, Oct., 24.
