Finally the Dolphins have won a close game. All I heard through out the week was how in the last two years the Dolphins have been horrible in games decided by 3 points or less. Tannehill did just enough to give them the win. He didn't break any of Marino's records but this game that he played today may have been better then the one from last week.
Tannehill didn't have nearly as many passing yards as last week and he didn't have a TD like he did last week, but more importantly he didn't have a turnover. The biggest thing criticized last week was that he had 3 turnovers, 2 INTs and a fumble, but today he was able to correct it which helped lead to a new career high in passer rating for him with a 92.3 rating.
One of the best factors to see how successful a QB will be in the future is if they are able to correct the things they did last week. I'm not saying now that Tannehill is not going to have another game where he throws for multiple picks or turns the ball over a lot because that is part o the growing pains of being a rookie. However it is nice to see him correct the thing that ultimately cost them the game last week. Week one he had a lot of balls batted down, today I can't remember a single one being batted down. That's a good sign that he is improving his game, and that his future looks bright.
Tannehill didn't break a record today but he did what he had to to get the win. I love seeing a cool calm and collected QB who is able to correct his mistakes and not dwell on the past. For the first time since I could remember I can finally say that the future does indeed look bright. It's going to be a fun ride
