Dolphins Tannehill shushed critics yesterday against Raiders
The Dolphins quarterback, who was in the middle of a storm all week because his coach declined to endorse him as the starter, led the way Sunday as Miami beat the Oakland Raiders 38-14 at Wembley Stadium in London.
Tannehill took advantage of a banged up Oakland defense, spreading the ball around to his receivers. The third-year quarterback completed 23 of 31 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns.
“I know I wasn’t playing up to standards the last few weeks, so I wanted to come out and personally play better,” Tannehill said. “My teammates demand that from me and they expect that from me, and to finally come out and do that felt good.”
Tannehill shined this week and I would not be surprised if he keeps it going.
