Tannehill and Miller Sweep FedEx Air & Ground Awards

For what it's worth - 

Ryan Tannehill and Lamar Miller have been awarded the FedEx NFL Air and Ground Players of the Week (respectively).

Both won for their performances against the Texans – Tannehill completed 18 of 19 passes (94.7 percent) for 282 yards and four touchdowns for a 158.3 passer rating. Miller racked up 175 yards on 14 carries (12.5 avg.), including an 85-yard touchdown in the Dolphins' 44-26 win.

 Because of these victories, Miami's chapter of the American Red Cross will be awarded a total of $4,000 – $2,000 in Tannehill's name, $2,000 in Miller's.

And IMHO it doesn't validate Tannehill or mean he's any good. It was the Texans after all.

Hi, Dave! I would put Tannehill in the Cutler, Flaco, Fitzpatrick, Smith category for now.

He's much better when the Fins can run the ball. The Patriot's defense impressed me!

Definitely better when they run. But with so many holes on the roster, I'm not sure they can have success.

The next few weeks will tell a lot about the team, tannehill, and coaching. They don't have to win - just play well.
