Amidst the injuries, this was Tagovailoa’s breakout season in the NFL as he showed signs as to why he was considered a top pick and a true franchise quarterback. In 13 games the former Alabama quarterback threw for 3,548 yards, 25 touchdowns, eight interceptions, completed 64.8 percent of his passes and averaged 8.9 yards per attempt.
