MIAMI -- Ryan Tannehill took some hits when he came to the sideline following the Miami Dolphins' final score.
The rookie quarterback weaved along the bench playfully jostled by a nudge to the ribs, slaps on the helmet and whacks on the back. It was standard stuff as NFL celebrations go, but unusual for Tannehill and Miami's offense.
The Dolphins snapped their scoring slump with a ball-control attack
"It feels good to go out and execute the game plan, have some fun, have some long sustained drives and convert third downs," Tannehill said. "It was a lot of fun."
While Tannehill had a season-high passer rating of 123.2, counterpart Chad Henne failed to reach the end zone playing in Miami for the first time since he departed as a Dolphins bust last offseason.
Tannehill went 22-for-28 passing for 220 yards and two scores with no interceptions, and he ran eight times for 52 yards.
The Dolphins sewed up the victory with an 85-yard drive that took nine minutes of the fourth quarter and ended with Tannehill's 2-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano.
