Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 19 of 44 passes for 198 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the New York Jets in London.
The Jets put heavy pressure on Tannehill all game long, sacking him three times for a loss of 31 yards. He connected with eight different receivers, with wideout Kenny Stills leading the way with five catches for 81 yards and a touchdown. Tannehill has four touchdown passes in his last two games, but he's also been picked off five times and has completed only 48.4 percent of his pass attempts. He is also not rushing the ball nearly as much as last season, as he's now racked up just 27 yards in four games.
Fantasy owners will get a break from his struggles, as the Dolphins are off in Week 5 before facing the Tennessee Titans in Week 6.
Tannehill entered Week 3 with a minor ankle injury, but it didn't appear to be a factor. He missed a lot of throws, however, and generally struggled to move the ball, as the Dolphins trailed 27-0 at halftime.
One of his interceptions came on a drop by Jarvis Landry, but the other two were shaky throws, including an ill-advised pass that was taken back for a 43-yard touchdown late in the first half.
After not looking great in the season opener at Washington, Tannehill seemed to play better last week at Jacksonville, but he had issues Sunday. He's got quite a few weapons at his disposal, including Jarvis Landry, Greg Jennings and Kenny Stills, but the emergence of Rishard Matthews (16 catches for 262 yards and three touchdowns through three games) has been a pleasant surprise, making Tannehill's poor play a surprise.
It won't get easier for the veteran QB in Week 4, as he'll face a formidable Jets' defense.
Against the Bills' aggressive front seven, Albert's absence works against potential production for running back
There has been no report of a setback in regards to Tannehill's ankle so the Dolphins could've just been taking it easy with their franchise QB. The bad news is that Tannehill will probably be without left tackle Brendan Albert and if he is at all immobile in the pocket Sunday, an angry Buffalo defense could make life quite miserable for him and the Dolphins offense.
Tannehill's full practice participation Wednesday confirms that he is on track to suit up Sunday against the Bills, in the absence of any setbacks at the week continues.
