Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs CLE (25 / 39 / 319 / 3 / 2 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

Tannehill had a solid day against an inept Cleveland defense, completing 64% of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Tannehill showed he can move the ball in previous weeks, but against a weak secondary like Cleveland's, he needed to be able to come away with a win. He did that, but also threw two poor interceptions, one on his first pass attempt of the game and another in the 2nd quarter. From there on though, it was smooth sailing. Tannehill completed passes to seven different receivers and showed poise in the pocket. His first touchdown pass was a thing of beauty, as Tannehill was patient going through his progressions, stepped up in the pocket when pressure converged around him and threw a strike to Davante Parker. The play was exactly as Miami coaches drew it up, with Tannehill taking advantage of Parkers athleticism and put the ball where Parker could make a play but his defender could not. His second touchdown pass came on play action, and Tannehill waited the appropriate time for Jarvis Landry to run a clear out route to the left sideline. He hit Landry in perfect strike and his wide receiver did the rest, making a nice juke on a Cleveland defender at the ten yard line before coasting in for the second Miami touchdown. Tannehill's final touchdown pass came on a shallow out route by running back Damien Williams, and Tannehill put the ball exactly where it needed to be in order for Williams to catch the ball on the right sideline and turn the corner for an easy score. All in all it was a very good day for Tannehill, and although he could do without the two turnovers, he led the team on four touchdown drives and scored the most points for Miami to date.

2016 Week 2 vs NE (32 / 45 / 387 / 2 / 2 pass, 6 / 35 / 0 rush)

For a player entering their 5th season, Ryan Tannehill has seen his fair share of criticism. Part of that is warranted because he has shown flashes of brilliance coupled with looking like a quarterback who has never fully developed. His week 1 performance did not help his case by any means, but his play in the second half on Sunday showed that at the very least he is a guy who the franchise needs to get behind. He finished the game 32-45 passing, with two touchdowns and two interceptions, to go along with 35 yards rushing. Tannehill's day was a tail of two halves. In the first half he was completely off the mark, overthrowing wide receiver Kenny Stills on a go-route up the right sideline, as well as missing Jordan Cameron up the seam when Cameron had a step on a Patriots linebacker. He redeemed himself for both of these errors by finding the aforementioned pair on touchdown passes in the second half. His strike to Kenny Stills showed poise in the pocket. After taking a low snap, Tannehill looked right and froze the safeties before glancing back left to see that Stills had toasted his coverage. He threw a good ball that was in-strike and right along the sideline and Stills made the easy grab for a touchdown several yards deep in the endzone. Tannehill's best throw of the day happened in the red zone and it highlighted the upside he is capable of having when all the weapons around him make the plays they are supposed to. He hit Jordan Cameron on a simple slant play for a touchdown, but the throw was on a frozen rope in between the linebackers in coverage and Cameron's defender. It was the exact play that Cameron botched in their third preseason game against the Bears, when he failed to go up and make a tough, but catchable play on a ball where Tannehill put the ball where it needed to be.

2016 Week 1 vs SEA (16 / 29 / 186 / 0 / 0 pass, 5 / 17 / 1 rush)

The numbers weren't great, but don't dismiss Tannehill just yet. He had the toughest of assignments, playing on the road against a Seahawks defense that pressured him all day long. The game flow would have been entirely different had he connected with Kenny Stills on a perfectly thrown deep ball early in the game. It would have been a sure touchdown and a 7-0 lead, but instead it was a horrible drop by the wide receiver, and on the very next play, Tannehill was sacked. Tannehill finally got the Seahawks off his back on a well-timed screen pass to Arian Foster, which he took down the sideline for a fifty yard gain. Overall, Tannehill showed excellent poise in the pocket and a nice touch to his passes, but the breaks certainly didn't go his way. Another thing: Tannehill is going to get his rush yards, slow and steady, perhaps, but they will be there. He looked great on an option run, and ran a draw play for short TD late in the game. There was excellent chemistry with Jarvis Landry, and rookie Leonte Carroo showed some promise. If Stills (or Parker, who was absent this game) can do better than 1-for-5 in targets, and Foster can steady the running game, then Tannehill should have more success going forward than he had today.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill tosses three TDs (Sun Sep 25, 09:56 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 319 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also ran once for two yards.

Our View: Tannehill was far from perfect, but he took advantage of an easy matchup padded by overtime stats. Next week, he faces the Cincinnati defense that Trevor Siemian took apart, but still will only be one of many streamer choices.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill throws for 389 yards (Sun Sep 18, 04:01 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill went 32-for-45 for 389 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 2. He also rushed for 35 yards on six carries.

Our View: Tannehill had a rough first half in the place that saw him play consistently worse than any other road stadium, but he was a very good once he was playing against a softer defense. He deserves streamer consideration against the Browns next week.
