Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs WAS (15 / 25 / 85 / 0 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Just when you think Rosen has turned the corner and is starting to make the best of his chance to start in Miami, he turns around and has a game like today. Rosen finished with a quarterback rating of 2.8, was sacked 5 times for a loss of 30 yards, and threw 2 interceptions. He was not pushing the ball down the field and averaged just 3.4 yards per completion. The first interception came when he tried to force a pass to Preston Williams. Williams made an in cut and Rosen just threw the ball just too far ahead of him and right into the chest of Quinton Dunbar. The coverage was tight, and Rosen tried to force a ball in that he should not have. The second interception was intended for Isaiah Ford and was another ball that Rosen tried to force into tight coverage. Rosen's eyes came back across the middle after his initial reads outside were covered. He let loose a pass across the middle with several Redskins in the area and the route got jumped for another interception. This came immediately after the Redskins scored their second touchdown and was the nail in the coffin for Rosen's day.

2019 Week 4 vs LAC (17 / 24 / 180 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Miami has continued its historically bad start to the season, but Rosen seems to be doing everything he can to turn that around. It would be considered a rocky start by just about any other quarterback in the league, but Rosen led Miami to one of its best games so far this season. He completed a long 34-yard touchdown to DeVante Parker on the outside. Parker ran a simple go route and beat the corner who tried to jump the route of the running back in the flat. It was an easy throw and catch as there was not a defender within 10 yards of Parker. Rosen also completed a 25-yard pass to Preston Williams that was tipped by one of their own players first to setup the touchdown play. Rosen tried to take a deep shot to Williams in the 4th quarter when they were playing catch up and had it intercepted. Rosen made a poor throw to Williams that would have carried him out of bounds and not been completed even if it had not been jumped underneath for the interception. Rosen was sacked 4 times for a loss of 18 yards and was not credited for a single running play this week. He will have his chance against a very porous Washington secondary in week 6.

2019 Week 3 vs DAL (18 / 39 / 200 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 13 / 0 rush)

Despite the final score, Rosen was in fact a winner this week when he made the Dolphins look respectable on the field. He kept the game close and was down only 4 at half time. He also almost gave them their first lead of the season had it not been for a missed field goal on the first drive. Rosen did the best he could with the weapons he had and over came a rushing attack that could not surpass 100 yards combined. Rosen was sacked 3 times this week but failed to complete 50% of his passes. He had an easy touchdown dropped by DeVante Parker on a slant route that hit him right in the hands but turned in a beautiful 24-yard pass on a flea flicker to Preston Williams. Rosen also dropped a 40-yard dime to Parker to setup the eventual missed field goal attempt on the first drive. The most important stat for Rosen this week was he did not turn the ball over. Kenyan Drake was the only Dolphin to turn the ball over this week and while Rosen was inaccurate, he did not complete the ball to the other team. Miami has a long way to go before they turn things around but making the switch to Rosen looks like the right decision so far.

2019 Week 2 vs NE (7 / 18 / 97 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

For the second week in a row, Rosen got a chance to take over in the 4th quarter when Fitzpatrick had struggled. Unfortunately for Rosen, the results were not much different. Rosen completed less than 50% of his passes, was sacked 3 times for a loss of 21 yards and posted a QB rating of 33.8. The first 2 drives resulted in turn over on downs and then the 3rd and final put the nail in the coffin with the 4th interception of the day. Rosen had a 1st and goal from the 8-yard line and tried to force the ball to Mike Gesicki for a game ending interception by Jamie Collins. To that point, Rosen had put together a good drive, but he was unable to cap it off with any points. Rosen has been given a chance the last 2 games and has not looked any better than Fitzpatrick. There has been no decision made on who will start at QB next week for the Dolphins.

2019 Week 1 vs BAL (1 / 3 / 5 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

It may not be fair to judge Rosen solely on this performance as he was only given 3 pass attempts. The first was a 5-yard completion to Gesicki, the second an interception on an over thrown ball, and the third an incompletion. The team was being blown out by the time he got the ball and it appeared as if everyone else on the field had quit at that point. The Dolphins made the off-season trade for Rosen, but also signed Fitzpatrick. Neither looks to be the quarterback of the future in Miami and most expect a quarterback taken with a high draft pick in the off season. If given the chance to start this season, Rosen will have to prove his worth to even continue to be a backup in the NFL.

Dolphins | Josh Rosen back to bench (Wed Oct 16, 01:02 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen was benched for Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills.

Our View: The Dolphins are vacillating between quarterbacks this year. It wasn't that long ago when Rosen was declared the starter for the rest of the season. That lasted about a week. We'll see if he can get back on the field at some point later in 2019.
