The Miami Dolphins fourth quarter comeback against the Seattle Seahawks has earned Ryan Tannehill a nomination for this week’s Pepsi Rookie of the Week award. Tannehill completed 18 of 26 passes for 253 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. Tannehill has some tough competition for the award this week, going up against RG3 and his 4 touchdowns in the Redskins win over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Please head over to NFL.com and cast your vote for #17!
Tannehill’s play during the first 3 quarters were nothing to write home about. However, in the fourth quarter, when the Dolphins needed him the most, he put on a show. He completed 7 of 9 passes for 153 yards and 1 TD. Those numbers were good for a perfect QB rating in the 4th quarter. One of those incompletions was a spike to stop the clock. Tannehill led the Dolphins on 2 touchdown drives of 80+ yards in the fourth quarter and the final drive that set up Dan Carpenter’s game-winning field goal. (cont’d on page 2, click below)
