The Miami Dolphins had a 3-3 record before deciding to promote rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to the starting lineup in place of veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Tagovailoa has led his team to a win in each of first three NFL starts.

With a win in Week 11, Tagovailoa will join two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger in exclusive company.

A Dolphins win against the Denver Broncos on Sunday would make the team 4-0 in Tagovailoa's first four starts, a feat that's only been accomplished by a rookie QB once in the last 40 years. Roethlisberger also won his four starts as a rookie in 2004 with the Steelers.

Tagovailoa has registered wins against the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, and Los Angeles Chargers in his first three starts. The rookie QB is averaging 15.7 completions and 170 yards per game. He has thrown five TDs in those three games, including two straight starts with 2 TDs through the air.

Tagovailoa will face a stout Bronco defense in Week 11 that ranks 11th in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Dolphins as 3.5-point favorites against Denver.
