How Amazon Handled Tua Tagovailoa’s Injury: Replays, Comments, and the Criticism That Followed

Amazon’s desire to become a major player in the live sports streaming space would inevitably involve controversy beyond viewers’ technical difficulties, and Thursday night brought such an example to Amazon Prime Video. The in-game coverage of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who suffered a head injury that briefly took him to a Cincinnati hospital, sparked strong criticism from fans, current and former players, media pundits and others.

Amazon, which has only been streaming “Thursday Night Football” exclusively for three games at a price of $1.2 billion a year, showed a replay of Tagovailoa’s firing and his head on the Paycor Stadium lawn bounced, and the subsequent neurological response. about half a dozen times in the minutes after it occurred. Some were close-ups in slow motion.

There was also criticism of Amazon’s half-time coverage of the injury, which mostly featured a trio of former players-turned-analysts offering heartfelt answers and insights into such situations, but lacked any mention of Tagovailoa being checked out for anything , which looked like a serious head injury four days earlier against Buffalo that was later described as a back injury.

No one answered the most important question at halftime: should Tagovailoa even have been out there?
