Landry outplayed Hartline and was targeted five times. The rookie came down with four catches for 46 yards, while Hartline caught all three of his targets for 35 yards in a 27-14 victory.
The Dolphins will travel to Jacksonville for a Week 8 showdown against the Jaguars.
Hartline's 30-game catch streak ended Sunday in the loss to Green Bay. He has caught 16 of 28 passes tossed in his direction this season for just 161 yards and one touchdown. He's far off the pace that produced successive 1,000-yard seasons.
"I think we have to get him more involved," Tannehill told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "He's such a consistent player that can be great for us in the pass game. To make teams defend both sides, Mike (Wallace) as well as Brian, I think it's important for us."
No Dolphins receiver has ever achieved three straight 1,000-yard seasons. Hartline would have to average 76 yards per game the rest of the way to hit that milestone.
Hartline was targeted twice in the first half and didn't have a pass thrown his way the rest of the game. He caught a 13-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill but had the play called back by an illegal formation penalty. Hartline was held without a grab for the first time since 2012 against the Rams. He has 16 catches for 161 yards and a touchdown this season.
Hartline will look to bounce back Week 7 at Chicago.
Just a week after scoring his first touchdown of the season,
Five of Hartline's six receptions came in the first two quarters. A 35-yard reception late in the first quarter was his longest gain of the night, followed by a 14-yard grab after halftime. He was targeted seven times and finished with six grabs for 74 yards in a 38-14 victory. Hartline has 16 catches for 161 yards and a score through his first four games of the season.
The Dolphins have a bye next week before hosting the Packers in Week 6.
