Tannehill's only touchdown pass came on a desperation 32-yard pass to Mike Wallace, who made an acrobatic catch in the end zone with five seconds remaining in the first half. He was picked off by Duron Harmon in the second quarter and Patrick Chung in the third quarter. Tannehill completed 29 of 47 passes for a season-high 346 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He rushed for 21 yards on three carries.
Tannehill has passed for 3,390 yards with 22 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has two games left to surpass the 4,000-yard mark for the first time in his three-year career.
Miami will face Minnesota at home in Week 16.
Tannehill had just 15 Fantasy points in Sunday's game, though he avoided any sort of mistakes in the loss. He just did little of note as the Dolphins offense fell completely silent after a few strong early drives. He picked up 227 yards though the air in the game, but rushed for just 6 on two carries, his fifth straight game with fewer than 20 rushing yards.
From Week 4 to Week 9, Tannehill averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game, a good chunk of which came with his legs, as he averaged 45.4 yards per game on the ground. In five games since, he has just 50 rushing yards total, and is averaging 17.6 Fantasy points per game.
Tannehill is a solid enough passer, but the Dolphins really found another level of success when he was involved as a runner. With teams slowing him down on the ground, Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of Tannehill down the stretch.
Tannehill’s lone touchdown came on a 3-yard pass to wide receiver Brian Hartline. The 227 passing yards helped Tannehill surpass 10,000 passing yards for his career. He also added 6 rushing yards on two attempts. Tannehill has not thrown for more than 300 yards in any game this season.
The Dolphins play at New England Week 15.
Tannehill and wideout Mike Wallace failed to hook up on two potential touchdowns. One was a wildly inaccurate throw, the other a bad drop. Tannehill got picked off in the third quarter when running back Lamar Miller couldn't handle a low throw and the ball ricocheted to cornerback Darrin Walls.
Tannehill also threw a pass directly at linebacker Calvin Pace, but Pace couldn't catch it. Tannehill will try to get back on track Week 14 against the Ravens.
Tannehill found the end zone for the first time all season on the ground, and added three more through the air, en route to a 32-point Fantasy game that stands as his second best of the season. However, he also delivered a crushing late interception as the Broncos worked their way back for the win.
This might have been the most promising performance of Tannehill's career, as he was effective in the red zone and made plays with his arm and his legs. He heads into a solid matchup against the Jets in Week 13 riding high, and could be a solid Fantasy play against a defense that ranks dead last against quarterbacks.
