The Dolphins are riding a five-game win streak into Sports Authority Field at Mile High Sunday where Miami will face a 3-6 Denver Broncos team.
On Saturday, Denver announced that quarterback Drew Lock will start in Sunday's game. He suffered a rib injury last week against the Raiders but will be behind center on Sunday.
Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Miami's offense are going up against a defense that has given up at least 30 points in the last four games.
Tua looks to go 4-0 as an NFL starting quarterback and feels like he’s getting better with every week that passes.
“Coach Chan (Gailey) and Robby (Brown) and all of our other coaches offensively have helped me tremendously throughout the week, throughout the prior weeks as well, in helping me get ready and knowing where to go with the ball, being decisive with all of that,” said Tagovailoa.
“When the ball was on the ground, already in my head I knew where I wanted to go with the ball as far as my pre-snap read. So I got the ball, took a peek a little bit before I threw it, and with DeVante (Parker), you’ve just got to give him an opportunity to go up and get it. To me, I like my chances with giving him a chance.”
Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is not taking the 3-6 Broncos team lightly.
“They’re well-coached. They’re hungry for a win, so this is going to be a tough, tough test. We’re going to have to play well really in all three phases and this is the National Football League. We’ve got to show up every week. We know that,” said Flores.
