However, the post-game comments by Patriots defensive end Deatrich Wise added an intriguing twist to the narrative.
Wise conceded that while Tua is a good quarterback but added, “He doesn’t do anything special against us.” according to Karen Guregian of the MassLive.

Making those remarks after yet another defeat to a quarterback who has consistently eluded the Patriots’ grasp is interesting.
Tua Tagovailoa’s impressive start to the 2023 season further underscores his potential. In Week 1, against the Los Angeles Chargers, he delivered an outstanding performance, completing 28 of 45 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns, with just one interception.
