Tannehill completed 20 of 29 passes for 155 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons. He also gained 22 yards on two rushes.
He looked mostly sharp for the second consecutive game, with even his interception coming as a result of a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage that diverted a throw intended for Kenny Stills. Tannehill once again looked comfortable and smooth in his handling of the offense, even rattling off a 22-yard gain on a designed run. He displayed solid rapport with Kenny Stills for the second straight game, while also finding favorite target Jarvis Landry on four occasions as well. The fifth-year pro seems to have taken extremely well to the pace that Adam Gase's offense dictates, and his preseason play could certainly be a harbinger of what might be his most prolific year yet.
Tannehill completed 12 of 20 passes for 162 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys. He also gained 16 yards on two rushes.
The fifth-year pro received his first extended stint of game action in new head coach Adam Gase's offense and didn't disappoint, hooking up with Kenny Stills for a pair of second-quarter scores. Tannehill threaded the needle in traffic for his first touchdown and then hit Stills perfectly in stride on a nifty three-yard wheel route out of the slot on third down for the second successful connection. He also had an impressive 55-yard hook-up with Stills while rolling to his right, as well as a 30-yard completion to Isaiah Pead. The early returns on Tannehill's comfort level and proficiency in yet another new offensive system were certainly favorable, and provides him plenty of momentum heading into the Dolphins' dress rehearsal game versus the Falcons next Thursday.
Tannehill completed 2 of 4 passes for 8 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Friday's 27-10 preseason victory over the Giants.
The 28-year-old connected on his first two passes to Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills, respectively. Tannehill then misfired on back-to-back throws to Jay Ajayi on the Dolphins' second possession before his exit from the game. It was reasonably positive debut for the fifth-year signal-caller in new head coach Adam Gase's offense, and he's expected to see more extended action in next week's tilt versus the Cowboys.
Christensen and new head coach Adam Gase are expected to give Tannehill more freedom to audible at the line of scrimmage -- and playing at a faster pace gives him more time to make good decisions. Tannehill has never lacked for volume, attempting between 586 and 590 passes in each of the last three years, but it's quite possible he could set a new career-best mark if the new coaching staff stays true to its stated intentions. Miami is returning the key members of last year's receiving corps. and should have an improved offensive line, but it's unclear how well they'll run the ball with Jay Ajayi expected to replace Lamar Miller as the lead back.
This will allow Tannehill to audible out of a play that the defense is prepared for and possibly put the Dolphins offense in a better chance to succeed. Tannehill has been studying the offense of Adam Gase as much as possible this spring so that he is up and running by the time training camp starts in July.
