Of course, Tannehill has benefited from a run of 30 or more yards the past two weeks, and that probably shouldn't be the expectation for him every week. But with Lamar Miller the only running game the Dolphins have, their quarterback has become more of a focal point on offense, throwing for two scores in four of six games this season.

He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries.
Tannehill will look to keep rolling Week 8 at Jacksonville.
