Tannehill completed 25 of 39 passes for 319 yards, three scores and two picks in Sunday's win over Cleveland. He also lost a fumble during the game.
As is often the case with Tannehill, Sunday's game was full of dazzling plays and bone-headed misses. The final few moments of regulation and overtime perfectly illustrate this as Tannehill was slow getting the ball off during the team's final drive of the fourth quarter - leading to a fumble that almost gave the game away. He responded in overtime by uncorking a 32-yard strike to Jarvis Landry with a defender in his face to set up the game-winning score. Tannehill has shown some big-play ability in Adam Gase's offense over the past two weeks, but four picks and three fumbles in three games makes him too much of a liability to rely on.
Although his final stat line was impressive, it belied the extremely cold start Tannehill had on the afternoon. He failed to complete a pass until the second quarter, which played a key role in a 24-3 halftime deficit for the
Tannehill didn't look sharp for most of the game, as Miami had just three points through the first 45 minutes. He was able to make some key plays late in the fourth quarter, including a short touchdown run that gave the
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.
