One of the most compelling storylines of the 2022 NFL season has been the reignited Tua Tagovailoa vs. Justin Herbert debate.
The two quarterbacks, drafted back-to-back in 2020, have both had strong years, but Tagovailoa’s breakout season has the Dolphins in position for a playoff berth.

Herbert is no longer light years ahead of Tagovailoa, and he faces the serious possibility of missing the playoffs for a third consecutive season. If Herbert can’t manage a win Sunday night, the odds of the Chargers (6-6) reaching the playoffs will shrink considerably.

The Dolphins (8-4) are looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss to the 49ers. Miami remains firmly in AFC East contention and would take a huge step toward shoring up a playoff berth with a win at Los Angeles.

Tagovailoa’s health will be worth monitoring after he began the week limited in practice with an ankle injury. He says it’s not a concern, but the Chargers’ defense will certainly hope to put the ankle to the test.
Also, can Los Angeles’ secondary contain Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle? If the receiver duo runs wild, another strong performance by Herbert could go to waste.
