Tagovailoa produced both Miami touchdowns in today’s 17-16 win, but after the game, Patriots cover man J.C. Jackson only wanted to talk about the interception the second-year quarterback threw.
In what appears to be an incredible display of sour grapes, Jackson discussed teammate Jonathan Jones’ fourth quarter interception of Tagovailoa by taking a shot at the young signal caller.
“If he doesn’t have his first read, he’s just gonna throw it up,” Jackson said, via Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald.

Jones intercepted Tagovailoa at midfield with eight minutes remaining. However, on the ensuing possession, Patriots running back Damien Harris lost a fumble at the Miami 9-yard line with just over three minutes left in the game.
The Dolphins then killed the remaining time by picking up a pair of first downs before kneeling out the clock.
For the day, Tagovailoa finished 16-of-27 passing for 202 yards, one touchdown and the aforementioned pick. He also scored a touchdown on the ground.
