The Miami Dolphins have made a quarterback switch. The Dolphins — who are 0-2 on the season — are going to Josh Rosen.

Rosen — who was acquired in an off-season trade with the Arizona Cardinals after they drafted Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft — will make his first Dolphins start against the Dallas Cowboys. He replaced veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick — who began the season as the starter.

Under Fitzpatrick — who also joined the team in the off-season after playing the 2018 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — the team has been outscored 102-10. They lost 59-10 in the season-opener to the Baltimore Ravens, before losing 43-0 to the New England Patriots.

In two games, he has gone 25 of 50 for 274 yards. He has thrown one touchdown pass and four interceptions.

He has a 39.9% competition percentage. In addition, two of those four interceptions were returned for touchdowns.

With how bad Fitzpatrick has looked, it makes sense for head coach Brian Flores to see what he has in Rosen. It’s going to be tough for Rosen to be successful in this offense with a lack of weapons.

Plus, the Dolphins have a horrible offensive line that will not help Rosen either. Fitzpatrick spent much of his time running for his life.

The 22-year-old Torrance, California native was the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. With the Dolphins, he has gone 8 of 21 for 102 yards. He has also thrown two interceptions.

He has a 38.1 competition percentage. In his rookie season, he had a 55.2 competition percentage.

As a starter with the Cardinals, he went 3-10 in 13 starts. He appeared in 14 games during the 2018 season.

Rosen went 217 of 393 for 2,278 passing yards. He threw 11 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions.
