After a week of who should get benched and who should get fired, the Dolphins rode out of Dodge and into London's Wembley Stadium to take advantage of a very poor Oakland Raiders team.
Yes, its only the Oakland Raiders. A team that came out of the half and probably set a NFL record by turning the ball over on their first 4 possessions.
Didn't see that coming or did you? Or did you even notice it?
So this beat down keeps Philbin at the helm for a while.
Tannehill played very well completing 23 of 31 passes for 278 yards with 2 TDs and only 1 interception. He also rushed 5 times for 31 yards. If you started him in fantasy you would have scored 22 points.
He looked very crisp and ran the offense superbly. He also had some drops and his interception bounced off of Dion Sims hands so how can you blame that on him.
He looked like the QB we all want him to be.
So this performance keeps Tannehill at the helm for a while.
Thank God they did what they should have done otherwise we would still be having those discussions through the much needed bye.
Yes, we need it.
We need to get some extra time between games to get a few guys back healthy and off suspension.
We need to get a few days off with a very good feeling inside and put a lot of this controversy behind us.
We needed to have gotten back in the hunt, though we never really fell out of it, even at 1-2. But 2-2 sounds so much better than the unthinkable.
When we combine this win with losses to both the Jets (1-3) and Buffalo (2-2), we've had a great day.
Everyone enjoy tonight. Have a wonderful night's rest.
I have some dishes to do.
