Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had one of his worst performances of the season in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers, throwing an interception for the first time since September.

While Tagovailoa tossed a 75-yard touchdown on the first play, the 49ers’ vaunted defense tightened up for much of the rest of the contest. Tagovailoa completed a season-low 55 percent of his passes. He had multiple interceptions for only the second time in 2022 — the other game being his six-touchdown performance in the week Two victory over Baltimore. And Tagovailoa had a lost fumble for the first time this season.

Tagovailoa missed receivers throughout the contest with off-target passes. After the game, head coach Mike McDaniel noted it was an uncharacteristic day for Miami’s quarterback.

“We’re pretty used to Tua being extremely accurate,” McDaniel said in his press conference.
