After missing last week’s game against the New York Jets due to a thumb injury on his left throwing hand, Tua Tagovailoa returned to action on Sunday and led the Miami Dolphins to a 19-7 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Tagovailoa completed 26 of his 39 passes for a career-high 296 yards and a touchdown.
The Dolphins were behind 7-6 at halftime but saw a more consistent Tagovailoa in the last two quarters, including his lone touchdown of the day to tight end Mike Gesicki.
Miami improves to 8-4 and remains in the AFC playoff picture. Next Sunday, they’ll host the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. Kickoff is set for 8 a.m. HST on CBS.
