With his mind right and his body in tune, Tua Tagovailoa authored the signature performance of his young career on Sunday.

The third-year Miami Dolphins quarterback threw six touchdown passes - tying the franchise record set by Bob Griese in 1977 and matched by Dan Marino in 1986 - while completing a 42-38 comeback win against the Ravens in Baltimore.

Miami is only the sixth team in NFL history to make up a 21-plus-point deficit in the fourth quarter and win in regulation.

So how did Tagovailoa do it, and is this a sign of things to come for the 24-year-old?

"I just love that he's finally throwing the ball down the field," an assistant coach told theScore.

"The speed threat of (Jaylen) Waddle and (Tyreek) Hill together (is) a game-changer, but he's never had someone like Mike (McDaniel) around him either."

McDaniel, the rookie head coach, praised the way Tagovailoa adjusted his mindset.
