The personnel packaging varied in this game more than usual. 11-personell was the go-to grouping for the 11thconsecutive game, but 12-personnel was employed a season-high eight times. 13-personnel was called upon once.

Of the 30 qualifying throws Tannehill made, 27 were on target. Two drops gave the Miami signal-caller a 90% effective rate on the day. Throughout the course of the game, Tannehill was fooled only once throwing high into a congested area.

Perhaps the lack of pressures had something to do with the box score. Tannehill took heat on a season-low three occasions (2 sacks and 1 hit) with an average snap-to-pressure time of 2.45 seconds.

Throwing contested passes was a complication as Miami completed only 3-of-11 tight-window throws. Tannehill wasn’t missing his spots though, as two passes were where they needed to be, but were broken up, with each of the two drops coming in this scenario.

The vertical passing game returned as Miami averaged 10.2 air-yards-per-pass. 47.4% of the passing yardage came after the catch and Tannehill was 6-of-9 on play action for 53 yards.

Tannehill spent more time under-center than usual against the 49ers (10 of 38 snaps coming from under-center).

Converting first downs wasn’t an issue – 40% of Miami’s pass play calls resulted in moving the sticks. Third downs, however, were a challenge – the Dolphins were just 3-for-9 in passing situations.

Despite a banged up offensive line and an in-game injury to Devante Parker, Tannehill sparkled in this game. This isn’t a game to write home about as the 49ers boasted the league’s worst defense at this juncture, but the good quarterbacks take care of business.

And, for the sixth consecutive game, Tanenhill and the Dolphins were good enough.
