Not a good day for Tannehill and Finnegan. Maybe we need more players one or two syllable last names like Smith or Johnson.

Quote:
Miami Dolphins –Performances of Note

Olivier Vernon, DE: +3.7

Breakdown: Proving too much for David Bakhtiari to handle, Vernon put up excellent pass rushing numbers (two sacks, two hits and a hurry) while remaining stout in the running game. The under-rated defensive end tied the team lead with four stops, earning his third green grade this season.

Signature Plays: On the Packers’ final drive, Vernon was a monster, recording a pressure, a hit, and a strip-sack on three consecutive plays following the two-minute warning.

Ryan Tannehill, QB: -2.8 passing

Breakdown: It would be foolish to discredit Tannehill’s rushing ability, but throwing the ball is the quarterback’s number one priority, and against Green Bay, Tannehill did not impress. Both of his interceptions came from ill-advised passes to covered receivers, and the third-year signal caller was spared two more thanks to the stone hands of Davon House and poor spatial awareness of Brad Jones. He made his share of impressive throws (including a beautiful lob under pressure for his first touchdown to Jarvis Landry), but in the end they were drowned out by a litany of risky passes.

Signature Stat: Tannehill went 1-of-7 for 25 yards and two picks on passes beyond 10 yards and outside the numbers.

Cortland Finnegan, CB: -3.2 coverage

Breakdown: Opting to leave Brent Grimes on Jordy Nelson for most of the game, Finnegan was left to cover the Packers’ second and third options, and since he lined up primarily outside, that meant a healthy dose of Davante Adams. All five catches allowed by the veteran corner were caught by Adams, and he could never seem to bring the rookie to the ground quickly, as 45 of the 70 receiving yards he surrendered came after the catch.

Signature Play: With 6:11 to go in the third quarter, Adams caught a hitch just short of the marker. Finnegan closed quickly, but then goes high with the tackle, allowing Adams to shrug him off and race up the sideline for a big gain.

Cortland got smoked in this game. He was out of position & behind the play so many times. Definitely didn't need PFF to see that one haha

I would think Starks balled out too. Remember that one 3rd down he stood up & shouted at the sideline just before Rodgers ran up the middle because there was no linebacker in sight? I have to believe he recognized the situation.

So impressed with that run defense in this game! Rodgers was just too mobile for that pass D
