Overall Game Grade — A+
Yes, Ryan Tannehill gets an A+. I have to give it to him considering that he made some great throws through tight windows and was insanely accurate. On the afternoon, he went 22-of-28 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions with a quarterback rating of 123.2 while also running for 52 yards.
Impressive day for the rookie, who showed plenty of signs of growth that the Dolphins want to see from him. But some perspective: it was the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still an A+ game though, even despite the fumble early in the game. He recovered well from it.
Fourth Quarter — A+
Tannehill's drive in the fourth quarter showed the potential that he possesses. He was on target for all of his passes, leading to the touchdown pass to Fasano.
Third Quarter — A
Tannehill really deserves a touchdown for his tremendous third quarter today. I hope the A makes up for it. Tannehill has made some great throws, with two potential touchdown passes dropped by Brian Hartline and Marcus Thigpen respectively.
Second Quarter — B-
Tannehill did well on Miami's second drive of the quarter, and wound up with a great touchdown pass to Jorvorski Lane. However the bad decision on the first drive downgrades his quarter grade to a B-. It would've been lower had the Dolphins only scored a field goal.
First Quarter — B-
The first drive looked promising for Tannehill and the Dolphins, however a dropped pass by Rishard Matthews forced Miami to settle for the field goal.
The second drive of the quarter however saw Tannehill put way too much on a pass to Reggie Bush, followed by him throwing the ball out of bounds on third down as opposed to throwing to a wide open Matthews.
Not bad, but considering the hot start, not very good either. B- seems right here.
