MIAMI GARDENS (AP) — Throwing, running and sliding, Ryan Tannehill left the Jacksonville Jaguars reeling. The Miami Dolphins quarterback made the most of his mobility, passing for 220 yards — often on rollouts — and running for 52 yards Sunday to help Miami beat the Jaguars 24-3.
Tannehill carried twice on read-option keepers, sliding to the turf before a defender arrived to level him. “It was good to see him do a little running,” teammate Reggie Bush said, “and thankfully he learned how to slide.”
The multi-threat rookie quarterback led an offense that mounted clock-eating drives of 76, 60, 64 and 85 yards on the Dolphins’ first four possessions of the second half to help them pull away.
While Tannehill threw for two scores and had a season-high passer rating of 123.2, counterpart Chad Henne failed to reach the end zone. Henne was playing in Miami for the first time since he departed as a Dolphins bust last offseason.
