By the numbers: Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has had an up-and-down three seasons. But lately Tannehill is starting to find consistency and play some of the best football of his career, while the Dolphins (5-3) are on a three-game winning streak.

Here are some impressive statistics Tannehill is putting up in Year 3:

  • Tannehill has a passer rating of at least 109.3 or higher in three of his past five games. He's posted passer ratings of 123.6 and 125.6 in two of the past three games.

  • Under Tannehill, Miami's offense is averaging 30.6 points per game since Week 4, which is fifth highest in the NFL.

  • Tannehill's completion percentage (63.3) through eight games would be fourth all-time in Dolphins history for a single season.

  • According to ESPN Stats & Information, Tannehill has an 82.9 QBR in his past five games.

  • Tannehill joined Steve Young and Michael Vick as the only three quarterbacks in the past five years to post a run of 20 yards or more in four straight games.

  • Tannehill is second on the Dolphins in rushing (245 yards) and averages 7.9 yards per carry. He owns Miami's longest run of the season at 40 yards.

  • Miami's offensive line has allowed just 17 sacks on Tannehill in eight games.

Tannehill is still out to prove he is the long-term solution in Miami. Keeping up these kind of numbers for the remainder of the season will go a long way.
