Before then, Tua meets a couple of familiar faces in Herbert (Week 10) and Burrow (Week 13).Brady is 43, Brees is 41 – the two facing off immediately after Tua and Murray’s clash on Sunday night as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints – but the NFL’s future at the quarterback position looks in safe hands with this exciting crop of young talent at the position.Watch Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins take on the Arizona Cardinals, live on Sky Sports NFL from 9:25pm on Sunday night. It’s part of a triple-header of NFL action, with coverage starting at 5pm. The state of the quarterback position in the NFL has never been stronger. Or, certainly, the speed and ease at which young talent from the college ranks are taking to the NFL has never been more pronounced.Joe Burrow, the No 1 overall pick in the 2020 Draft, is currently third in passing yards this season, with 2,272 – above Aaron Rodgers, above Tom Brady, Russell Wilson and Drew Brees too – while Justin Herbert, taken sixth overall by the Los Angeles Chargers, is in the top 10 in terms of TDs, with 15.Defending Super Bowl champion (and MVP) Patrick Mahomes is only 25 years old, while reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson is younger still, at 23. There’s also Deshaun Watson (25), Baker Mayfield (25), Josh Allen (24) and Kyler Murray (23), all consistently making plays each week. Brian Baldinger and Rob Ryan react to the news in Miami that rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been named the starter for the Dolphins. Tua’s first start certainly saw him being thrown into the deep end, up against the Los Angeles Rams and, specifically, two-time NFL defensive player of the year, quarterback-sacking machine Aaron Donald.On Tua’s opening possession, Donald mauled his blocker, pushed him back into Tua’s face and then stripped the ball – fumble!The Rams would score a touchdown on the turnover, but then would be kept out of the endzone until late in the fourth quarter, by which point the Dolphins defence themselves had stepped up to ensure a 28-17 victory in Tua’s first start – even if the rookie QB’s stat line wasn’t overly impressive (12 of 22 passing, 93 yards, one TD). 1:17 NFL Network analytics expert Cynthia Frelund gives her Week Nine NFL predictions.
