MIAMI GARDENS – Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill continues to make late-season improvement, so much that heading into next week's finale he's the best he's been all season.
In his last two games Tannehill is 35-for-53 passing for 350 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. He has an impressive passer rating of 109.8.
In his last four games Tannehill has five touchdowns and no interceptions. He's gone a span of 137 passes without an interception.
In his last six games Tannehill has thrown seven touchdowns and three interceptions.
And on the ground, in the last two weeks he's had runs of 30 and 31 yards. The latter is the second-longest rush by a quarterback in franchise history, and the former is tied for third.
"He's getting into a rhythm," running back Reggie Bush said. "It looks like he's improving and maturing."
Tannehill, who entered Sunday's 24-10 victory over Buffalo having completed 60.3 percent of his passes the previous four games, was 13-for-25 passing for 130 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 93.8 passer rating, the fourth-best of the season.
Tannehill now has 3,059 yards passing, becoming the fifth quarterback in franchise history to reach that milestone.
