J.C. Jackson wasn’t surprised that Jonathan Jones picked a Tua Tagovailoa pass midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday’s contest.
“That’s what Tua do,” Jackson told reporters. “If he doesn’t have his first read, he’s just gonna throw the ball up.”
Jackson said he thought New England would pick Tagovailoa sooner than they did.
Tua went 16 of 27 for 202 yards in Miami’s 17-16 win over the Patriots, with one touchdown and the interception.
“Like everyone on our team, there are corrections to make,” Dolphins coach Brian Flores said. “There are corrections for me to make as well. But as a team we’re going to stick together. We’re going to support one another. We’re not going to point fingers or do anything like that. Tua has done a lot of good things for us in the preseason and he did a lot of good things today.”
Jackson can talk all he wants, but it was the Dolphins who came out with the win.
