Tua Tagovailoa missed the final two games of Miami’s regular season, but the Dolphins clinched a playoff berth.

After earning an 11-6 victory over the New York Jets, Miami is 9-8 — grabbing the final AFC Wild Card spot. Tagovailoa has turned in a successful season, despite facing adversity. He remains 10th in the league among quarterbacks for passing yards (3,548), tied for seventh in passing touchdowns (25), fourth for quarterback rating (68.6), and first in passer rating (105.5).

Tagovailoa has dealt with concussions in his third NFL season.

If he is healthy enough, he gives the Dolphins their best chance of possibly making a deep playoff run. Next week is Wild Card Weekend for the National Football League. Mike McDaniel and Miami are hopeful to have Tagovailoa on the field.

The Dolphins are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
