Despite the playoff spot, it has yet to be determined whether or not Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will play. The Ewa Beach native and Saint Louis alumnus has not played since being placed in concussion protocol during a loss to the Green Bay Packers on Christmas Day.

Regardless, Tagovailoa has made the playoffs for the first time in his three-year NFL career. A decision on his status is likely to be determined in the coming days.
