Week 12: at Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ryan Tannehill threw 26/34 for 240 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions against the ball-hawking Bills last week, despite taking five sacks for -35 yards from their hard-charging defensive front. He leaned on a wide array of wide receivers last weekend, hitting Brian Hartline for the most receiving yards (four targets for 3/55/0 receiving), followed by: Jarvis Landry (five for 5/46/1), Mike Wallace (seven for 4/38/0), Damien Williams (three for 2/38/0, and Brandon Gibson (three for 2/13/1). Tight end Charles Clay handled six for 5/31/0 as well. The Dolphins spread the wealth among many receivers (as is usual this year). The Broncos allowed 20/29 for 220 yards, one TD and zero interceptions to Shaun Hill last weekend, while sacking him three times for -14 yards during the loss in St. Louis. Derek Carr wasn't sacked at all two games back (30/47 for 192 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown), but the Broncos triumphed in that game 41-17 as Denver's offense was it's usual powerhouse self up until week 11. To date, the Denver pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 243.0 net yards given up per game, with 19 passing scores allowed vs. 10 interceptions (tied for 10th in the NFL) and 27 sacks (tied for eighth) generated. The Denver pass D is solid across the board, but tends to allow yardage/a garbage TD here and there after they build up a big lead. Tannehill and company have a tough draw this week traveling to partisan Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs BUF (3 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)

Gibson unlikely found the end zone on Thursday night against Buffalo, but it serves as more of an outlier than anything else. He's fourth in the pecking order among wide receivers in snaps, he saw just three targets total in the game, and hasn't seen more than four targets in a single game this season. Thursday's TD was his first of the season, but it was a brilliant play design. Whether or not it was designed specifically to get Gibson open, we'll probably never know for sure, but it was a simple play-action rollout for Tannehill and Gibson was wide open in the end zone. With Jarvis Landry's emergence, and Charles Clay looking healthier, Gibson's role will continue to be very spotty. Bill Lazor likes showing off different looks, so he still figures to see about 50% snaps per game.
