* Emmanuel Ogbah sacked Tagovailoa.

* Melvin Ingram blew up the racing game.
* Sam Eguavoen made an eye-catching play for the second straight day, bursting to fire Bridgewater.
* Skylar Thompson stepped into the pocket to find Ezukanma.

* The Dolphins have activated defensive back Elijah Campbell on the non-football injury list. It was awarded to Miami out of waiver on September 1 by the Jets. He played in seven games for the Dolphins last year and had two special teams tackles.
