An awful Jax team and a Barfalo team that looks like it's giving up. Yeah, that brings up my confidence. The real test is next week, especially since the Pats will be bringing their A game so that they can secure home-field advantage.
I'll give you that Jacksonville is not a very good team this year and neither are the Bills. But this is still the same Buffalo team that he struggled with big time just a little over a month ago. He had a 46.9 QBR the first time he saw the Bills. Today he had a 93.8 QBR. That's a pretty significant turnaround. To me, the last two wins are a sign that Tannehill is getting past the rookie wall. What's even more impressive to me is he's doing it without Davone Bess, his #2 target.
In addition, this is now the second time this year that Tannehill has gone four straight games without an INT. In his last five games he's thrown 6 touchdowns to 1 interception. He's gone 3-2 in that span. To me it shows signs that he's improving.
While I agree that the Patriots are the gold standard in the AFC East right now, and all other teams are stacked up against them. So far this year we've been able to bounce back and have solid performances against both the Jets and Bills the second time we faced them. I think our staff is still learning the ropes in the AFC East, and so is Tannehill. I expect us to play much better than we did last time. I think it will be an even closer game if not a win for us.
