Tannehill stayed mistake-free for the second straight week while once again allowing Jay Ajayi to carry the majority of the offensive load on his capable shoulders. The game script for the last two games has essentially been the ideal one for Tannehill, whose propensity for errors often rises in proportion to the amount of times he has to put the ball up. The fifth-year pro has now impressively completed 68.4 percent (39-for-57) of his passes over the last two games and has hit passes of 53 and 66 yards in those contests, with the latter a spectacular scoring connecting with Kenny Stills on Sunday. He'll look to continue this solid play against the Jets in Week 9 following the

That's two straight forgettable performances for the Dolphins quarterback, who has thrown for just 380 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions over the past two weeks combined.

If he can't exploit Pittsburgh's porous secondary next week, it's going to be very tough to trust Tannehill moving forward.
