The Miami Dolphins are facing the New England Patriots in Week 17 of the NFL season. Starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was ruled out ahead of this game with a concussion, leaving backup Teddy Bridgewater to start the game. Bridgewater threw an interception and hit his hand on a player’s helmet on the follow-through. He is now in the medical tent.

Bridgewater was 12 of 19 passing for 161 yards with a touchdown and an interception ahead of his injury. He added one rush for six more yards. While he is sidelined and getting checked out, backup quarterback Skylar Thompson will take over with the Dolphins trailing.
