"Every day, practice and games, he gets better at it," Lazor said, per the Palm Beach Post. "He's confident in it. It helped us win the game."
In the past six quarters, Tannehill has completed 37 of 47 attempts for 437 yards, with four touchdown passes. He's also carried the ball seven times for 88 yards and a score.
Tannehill hooked up with Charles Clay for a 13-yard touchdown strike in the opening quarter and fopund Mike Wallace for a 10-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. He started the game by completing his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 on the afternoon with 277 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-14 victory. He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries.
Tannehill will look to keep rolling Week 8 at Jacksonville.
Tannehill rushed for 48 yards in the team's 27-14 win over the Bears, the third game in a row he has racked up at least 35. He had just 18 in the first three games of the season combined. The increased reliance on his running skills has opened things up for Tannehill, who is now riding arguably the best three-game stretch of his career.
Tannehill tossed two more touchdowns to go with 277 yards through the air Sunday, and has now topped 20 Fantasy points in each of his last three games. This is just the second time in his career he has accomplished that feat, with the last coming from Weeks 13 through 15 last season.
Tannehill has racked up 35 or more rushing yards eight times in his career, and has 15 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions in those games. Impressively, he is averaging 22.4 Fantasy points per game in those games, which establishes a clear pattern -- just ask the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.
Tannehill played receiver before earning the quarterback job in college, so his athleticism is no secret. Now that the Dolphins are making use of it more often, he makes for an intriguing Fantasy player. He could be a solid starting option in Week 8 against the Jaguars.
The Dolphins added a second quarterback to the practice squad this week, but it's likely that Tannehill's injury won't keep him from playing Sunday. He rushed for 49 yards on three carries in Week 6 while racking up 227 passing yards.
