Miami Dolphins Stock Watch

The Miami Dolphins (3-3) improved to .500 after picking up a win over the Chicago Bears (3-4).

Here is a look at whose stock is rising in Miami:

1. Ryan Tannehill, quarterback: Sunday's win was the most dominant performance I've seen from Tannehill in three seasons. He threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns. But Tannehill's command of the offense, accuracy and decision making was off the charts. Tannehill completed 14 straight passes in the first half and 19 of 21 after three quarters. He also rushed for 48 yards. Tannehill was lights out on the road.

2. Joe Philbin, head coach: Philbin was ridiculed last week for his bad coaching performance. But he deserves props for making sure his team was able to bounce back from a tough loss in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers to be ready to play against Chicago. Philbin and his staff coached aggressively and put together a strong game plan to beat the Bears. Miami's staff outcoached the Bears on both sides of the ball. Philbin brought his "A" game.

3. Cortland Finnegan, cornerback: Finnegan played with a chip on his shoulder after struggling against Green Bay. He responded with four tackles, a team-high four pass defensed and a forced fumble. Finnegan did a solid job throughout on Chicago star and former Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, who had just six catches for 48 yards. Finnegan frustrated Marshall, and it boiled over in the final seconds as Marshall shoved Finnegan after a turnover on downs.

4. Mike Wallace, receiver: Wallace scored his fifth touchdown of the season in the second quarter against Chicago. He led the Dolphins with five receptions in a game where eight players had a reception for Miami. Wallace's consistency has been strong this season. He's caught a touchdown in every game this season except one.

5. Reshad Jones, safety: Jones spent the first four games on suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He returned last week against Green Bay but played his best game of the season thus far against Chicago. Jones led the Dolphins with seven tackles and had an interception off Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler that set up a second-quarter touchdown. Jones has added more playmaking to Miami's secondary.
