Report: Josh Rosen to Start for Dolphins vs. Cowboys

Rosen is reportedly getting the starting nod over Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

The Miami Dolphins are starting quarterback Josh Rosen for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday.

According to Rapoport, Rosen will get the start under center despite earlier reports that the Dolphins were sticking with Ryan Fitzpatrick heading into the matchup. Coach Brian Flores reportedly made the decision to play Rosen Thursday afternoon.

The Dolphins opened the season with a 59–10 loss to the Ravens in Week 1. Miami suffered another blowout loss last week, this time a 43–0 thrashing by the Patriots.

Fitzpatrick, 36, is 25-of-50 passing for one touchdown and four interceptions through two games for a passer rating of 39.9.
