Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs CIN (20 / 35 / 185 / 1 / 2 pass, 3 / 17 / 0 rush)
This is a game that Tannehill will soon want to forget. He looked completely over matched by the Bengals pass rush and did not feel comfortable moving in the pocket or trying to escape. He threw 2 ugly interceptions and was strip sacked and had the ball returned for a touchdown. His lone touchdown pass was a beautiful corner route by Kenyan Drake after he leaked out of the back field. It was not a difficult throw as there was no defender in the area and it came down to how Drake ran the route. Tannehill did notice that Drake was being covered by a linebacker and knew that is where he wanted to go with the ball. The first interception was the worst of the game. The pressure got to Tannehill and he attempted to jump and throw the ball just over the line and in front of the linebackers. However, he let go of the ball to late in his motion and spiked it right into the arms of a pass rusher. From there it was an easy 22-yard jog into the end zone for a touchdown. It is hard to say where he was trying to go with the ball. It may even have been a pump fake that got away from him, but in the end, it resulted in a touchdown for the Bengals. The second interception was not returned for a touchdown but did effectively end the game. Tannehill tried to take a shot deep down the middle to Kenny Stills and it was an easy interception for the safety who was sitting back in coverage. Tannehill did not look comfortable at all this week and he will have to content with the likes of Khalil Mack next week and a rejuvenated Bears defense.
2018 Week 4 vs NE (11 / 20 / 100 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
The gadget plays, and long shovel pass runs seemed like a distant memory for Tannehill this week as he looked lost on the field against the Patriots. The big plays from last week should have served as foreshadowing for his inability to get the ball down the field, but the overall numbers hid that. Tannehill's longest play of the game was also the first play of the game to Kenny Stills. He unloaded a deep pass down the right sideline and Stills was pushed out of bounds before he could break free. Unfortunately, it was a very similar play that resulted in an interception later in the game. Tannehill tried to take a shot down the field and let loose a lame duck that did not land anywhere near his receiver but instead went right to a New England defender. Tannehill does not have to worry about Osweiler taking his job, despite the garbage time touchdown he threw in relief. Tannehill is slated to be the starter next week against the Bengals, but it will be interesting to see how quickly or if the Dolphins pull him again when they are behind.
2018 Week 3 vs OAK (17 / 23 / 289 / 3 / 0 pass, 3 / 26 / 0 rush)
It has been a long road to recovery for Tannehill, but he is finally starting to look like the quarterback that this team thinks can lead them to the playoffs. The run game was almost nonexistent today, but Tannehill had his full complement of receivers for the first time this season and took advantage. Tannehill had long passes of 74, 36, and 34 yards and showed the ability to move around in the pocket and extend plays when he needed to. His first touchdown was a beautiful 34-yard throw deep down the left sideline where he hit Kenny Stills in stride in the back of the end zone. Stills had beat his corner off the ball and then simply ran past the safety to the back of the end zone and the perfect ball that only he could make a play on. The second touchdown was all Jakeem Grant on an 18-yard touch pass end around. The receiver came in motion as the ball was snapped and Tannehill just tossed it in front of him and he took off running. This looks more like a running play, but since the ball was thrown forward it is considered a pass and registers as a passing touchdown. His third and final touchdown was the exact same play, only run to the other side and with Albert Wilson. The receiver came in motion before the snap again and Tannehill simply tossed the ball into his path and the speedy receiver took it 74-yards for the touchdown. The blocking in front of Wilson was superb and he was not even touched on his way to the end zone. This made the score 28-17 with only 2 minutes to go. Tannehill was made to look good by receivers taking end around passes to the house, but he was also very efficient, did not turn the ball over, and was only sacked a single time. The Dolphins are playing good football right now but will travel to New England to take on a Patriots team who was just beaten by the Lions.
2018 Week 2 vs NYJ (17 / 23 / 168 / 2 / 0 pass, 8 / 44 / 0 rush)
The final line for Tannehill does not look all that bad, but he did not play very well against a middle of the road Jets defense. He was sacked 4 times for a loss of 46 yards, fumbled the ball twice, and did not feel comfortable in the pocket at all. He fled every chance he could get and ended up rushing the ball 8 times and almost outpaced his running backs. Tannehill's first touchdown came on a 29-yard crossing route by Albert Wilson. The tight end cleared the middle by pulling the linebacker up the seam and Wilson was able to run underneath for the easy completion and touchdown. The second score was a 19-yard missile right down the middle of the field to AJ Derby. Tannehill scrambled in the pocket and avoided the rush long enough to hit Derby in the end zone as he worked back towards his QB. This was one time that Tannehill stayed in the pocket and delivered a strike. The only other big play for Tannehill came on the first play of the game where he took the ball off the right end for 20-yards. This tied Kenyan Drake for the longest run of the day. Tannehill is going to need better protection from the offensive line going forward if he is going to survive the entire season.
2018 Week 1 vs TEN (20 / 28 / 230 / 2 / 2 pass, 4 / 4 / 0 rush)
This was a very up and down game for Tannehill. He showed some flashes of brilliance and the ability to make the big play, but also the rust that comes from a lost season due to injury and poor decision making. He was able to connect with Kenny Stills for two touchdowns and had a run game that supported him to the tune of just over 4 yards per carry, but he could not put the Titans away late in the game. Tannehill also threw two interceptions that almost cost them a victory. The first touchdown was a 10-yard strike to Stills who took a quick out up the sideline for a touchdown. The defense doubled the inside receiver and left Stills open to the outside for the easy score. The second touchdown came on a deep ball right down the middle of the field that Stills took for 75 yards and a touchdown. He ran right between the safeties and was not touched all the way to the end zone. Tannehill did just enough for the Dolphins to win today but he is going to have to play much better if they want to fight for a playoff spot this season.
