Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Gives God ‘All the Glory’ After Win
By Movieguide® Contributor
Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa praised God for his team’s win after suffering two major concussions last season that could have ended his career.
After week one of the regular season, Tagovailoa threw for a total of 466 yards with 28 total completions, which helped him earn the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
The Miami Dolphins shared on their Instagram page, “Uce popped off in Week 1. Congrats @tuaman on being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week!”
Sports Spectrum added, “Tagovailoa led his team to a wild 36-34 road win over the Los Angeles Chargers. After trailing for much of the fourth quarter, Tagovailoa connected with wide receiver Tyreek Hill on a four-yard touchdown with 1:45 remaining to put the Dolphins ahead for good.”
Despite a stellar game, Tagovailoa gave all the glory back to God.
“First and foremost, I’d just like to give all the glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Tagovailoa said in an interview with CBS Sports.
He then paraphrased Matthew 19:26, saying, “Without Him, nothing is possible for me.”

The quarterback frequently shares his faith. In a 2019 interview with CBN News, Tagovailoa reflected on his relationship with Jesus.
“The greatest gift that God could’ve ever given us was His Son,” he expressed. “It’s not just a matter of hearing what Jesus Christ is. It’s a matter of getting to know who Jesus Christ is — to really understand and really feel the identity of who you are because of things that He’s done.”
“And I’d say you can only find your identity through Him, if you know Him,” he added.
Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins face the Broncos this Sunday in their third regular season game.
Before the 2020 NFL Draft, Tagovailoa discussed the importance of his faith in an interview with CBN’s The 700 Club.
“Your foundation is what you’re always going to revert back to,” Tagovailoa said. “For me, my foundation is my faith and my family. You know my faith is what keeps me motivated when I can’t even stay motivated myself. I’m just trying to play football, just trying to be able to take care of my family and be able to use my platform for the right reasons.”
“The greatest gift that God could have given us was His Son. It’s not just a matter of hearing what Jesus Christ is, it’s a matter of getting to know who Jesus Christ is. To really understand and really feel the identity of who you are because of things that He’s done. And I’d say you can only find your identity through Him, if you know Him,” he continued.
