Tua Tagovailoa equals Dan Marino’s record in Dolphins’ win over Ravens
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw six touchdown passes as the Miami Dolphins beat the Baltimore Ravens.
The Miami Dolphins rallied from a 21-point deficit thanks to four fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat the Baltimore Ravens 42-38 on Sunday afternoon.
Dolphins’ quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns, tying Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Bob Griese’s franchise record for the most TD passes in a game, and establishing his name into the history books along the way. Marino did so against the New York Jets in the 1986 season and Griese in 1977 against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Tagolvailoa recorded two touchdowns with Tyreek Hill, two with Jaylen Waddle, one with Mike Gesicki and one with River Cracraft in the Week 2 game against the Ravens. And what made his performance even more impressive was that Tagovailoa had two interceptions in the first half, and a loss to Baltimore was on the cards.
According to the ESPN statistics service, Tagovailoa is the second youngest player in NFL history to throw six TDs and accumulate 450 yards since 1950. The first place is occupied by Patrick Mahomes, of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Ravens’ Lamar Jackson also had an amazing performance on Sunday, throwing for 318 yards and rushing for 119 with three passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown.
That’s the 11th time Jackson has rushed for 100 yards in a game, setting a new NFL all-time record for the most 100-yard rushing games by a quarterback. The previous record belonged to Michael Vick, who had 10 games of that type in his 13 seasons in the NFL.
