Charting Ryan Tannehill Week 7 2016

Travis Wingfield



For the second consecutive game, the box score didn’t accurately portray Ryan Tannehill’s performance. Sharp on third down, his second best first-down-conversion percentage of the season and extending plays with his legs, Tannehill had the offense cruising.

The notable change in this game was the third down prowess. Aside from the pair of third down conversions near the end of the fourth quarter, Tannehill was picking up difficult down-and-distances all game. Just five of the 12 opportunities resulted in the chains moving, but factoring in two more dropped passes gives Tannehill an adjusted rate of 58.3% (7-for-12).

Altogether, 36.7% of the Dolphins 30 registered plays resulted in first downs. Tannehill, however, made more errors in this game than in previous showings. Of the 24 qualifying passes, five of the incompletions came via QB error (one bad read, two off-target throws and two passes into coverage that were broken up).

The vertical passing game made an emphatic return. Tannehill’s 260 air yards put his average per throw at 10.83 – a season high. 40.2% of the 204 passing yards came after the catch – 40 of which came on one play.

A season low 10 passes were thrown within five yards of the line of scrimmage. The Dolphins went with an empty package only once and ushered on an extra lineman for two plays. 11-personnel returned to its prominent place with 26 of the 31 snaps occurring in this package.

The Miami offensive line put together its second consecutive impressive showing. Of the 11 total pressures, just one was a sack. The average time from snap-to-pressure was 2.3 seconds. Tannehill made things happen with his legs in this game including a designed run for a first down.

The Bills challenged a lot of passes at the catch point. Five of the 12 passes thrown into traffic were completed and two were dropped.

Jay Ajayi’s 200-yard rushing performance opened up the play action game. Tannehill completed five of seven passes for 47 yards on play pass. More than ¼ of the called pass plays came from under center (8-of-31).

The late touchdown pass saved the box score for Tannehill. Regardless, he had command of the huddle and at the line-of-scrimmage, consistently had the Dolphins in the right play call and was sharp on third down.
