After being outscored 102-10 in a pair of losses to open the season, the Miami Dolphins might be making a change under center.

The Dolphins will consider benching Ryan Fitzpatrick in favor of Josh Rosen for next week's game against the Dallas Cowboys, sources told Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

Miami was shut out Sunday in a 43-0 loss to the New England Patriots. Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns over the span of five second-half plays.

After the game, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said Fitzpatrick remains the top quarterback but left open the door for a change.

"We'll evaluate things over the course of the week," Flores said, according to's Jeremy Bergman. "As of right now, Ryan is still the starter."

Fitzpatrick, 36, had 89 yards on 21 attempts before being replaced by Rosen, who threw for 97 yards and a pick on 18 attempts. The Dolphins trailed by 23 points heading into the fourth quarter when the 22-year-old entered the game.

Miami acquired Rosen from the Arizona Cardinals this offseason in exchange for a second-round pick. The Dolphins need to see what they have in the former first-rounder before next year's draft, during which they're widely expected to target a top quarterback.
