Quarterback grade: Ryan Tannehill, 72.9 (passing grade)

Tannehill puts together a solid display, but injury cuts his game (and season) short

Ball-handling conditions were sub-optimal in Miami to say the very least, with Ryan Tannehill and Carson Palmer each contributing a fumbled snap to the game’s tally of turnovers. But aside from a comical fumble which resulted in a 21-yard loss (and caused his overall grade to take a hit), Tannehill managed the conditions well before his game was cut short late in the third quarter with a reported ACL tear that would end his season. An interception by Marcus Cooper was the only other notable blemish on his performance, as he dodged the cloud bursts to hook up with Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills to good effect. Backup Matt Moore came through in the clutch with Kenny Stills on the final drive to keep the Dolphins very much in the playoff mix.

Top offensive grades:

RT Ja’Waun James, 83.2

WR Kenny Stills, 81.6

WR Jarvis Landry, 75.5

RG Jermon Bushrod, 68.1

RB Jay Ajayi, 67.9

Stills and Landry overcome the conditions to lead Miami’s win

Weather created havoc on ball-handling in this one, as Jay Ajayi’s performance was marred by a fumble. His offensive line also failed to create the kind of lanes that led to some big games earlier in the year. Ajayi picked up more yards after contact (56) than he did in total on the ground (49), and broke four tackles to keep the Cardinals’ defense honest. Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills both had strong games. A slip by Stills contributed to Tannehill’s one interception in the game, but he made up for that on the final drive picking up two first downs against Arizona cornerback Justin Bethel to take the Dolphins first into field goal range and then to the Cardinals’ goal-line to set up Andrew Franks’ game winning chip shot.

Top defensive grades:

DE Cameron Wake, 90.1

DT Ndamukong Suh, 85.8

DT Earl Mitchell, 77.5

DE Andre Branch, 76.5

DE Jason Jones, 76.5

Defensive line leads the charge to the playoffs

The Dolphins got back into the top six in the AFC with this victory, and it resulted from a stellar display from their leaders up front. Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh combined to rack up 12 pressures on Carson Palmer, combining a couple of times on the same play to collapse the entirety of the right side of Palmer’s pocket. Suh added a further three stops against the run. Andre Branch and Jason Jones each added a pair of pressures, with Branch racking up his fourth sack in the last five games in his first year as a Dolphin. The Miami defensive line will be integral to their success in the final three weeks of the season, as they seek to prop up their underwhelming linebacking corps and proceed without their starting quarterback.

Bushrod gave up a sack.

Suh was rock solid....When teams go run heavy I would like to see him moved to end more.

I would do that deal again in a minute.

Did Parker play? He's been a huge disappointment.

He was only targeted once until late and and maybe one or two more times after that....

He did have one big catch.

Landry had another cheap shot on a hit in the back and stupid taunting penalty after a td to give the Cards good field position.

After reviewing Landry's hit....he was trying to knock a defender off a tackle. We need more guys like that.

"RB Jay Ajayi, 67.9" I mentioned in an earlier, not pointing fingers, but he has gone cold. Whether its OL or him, they're not getting it done on the ground.

Parker caught the pass on the play where Tannehill was injured.

The weather had a lot to do with his targets in my opinion. Don't want to throw a lot of 50/50 balls or tough catches when players are slipping and sliding. Too many turnover possibilities.

I bet Moore targets Parker a lot.

I blame Steen a bit. There always seems to be a defender in the backfield between him and the guards.

Ajayi had some nice runs with broken tackles. The numbers don't look great but he's fun to watch.

Waiting for Pouncey which I hope is not at all like "Waiting for Godot".

I think it was Steen who gave up the pressure on Matt Moore on that great pass to Stills to help win the game. I do not know how he got that pass off.

Yeah, I watched it again and I was initially too harsh on Moore. Still a dangerous throw but similar to the TD Tannehill threw against SD. Stood tall, got clocked but put the ball where the WR could make a play.

Steen is nursing a shoulder injury.

Given he was lined up on Fitz all day and held him in check, I think so too.

I think Maxwell may have had some penalties that kept him from being up there.
