Jarvis Landry up, Ryan Tannehill down for Dolphins

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A look at Miami Dolphins players who were “up” and those who were “down” in Thursday night's 36-7 loss to the New England Patriots.

UP

Jarvis Landry: The receiver led the Dolphins with 71 receiving yards despite consistent bracket and double coverage from the Patriots. New England coach Bill Belichick made it a point to take Landry out of the game. He was the main focus of attention for the Patriots’ secondary. But Landry still found ways to make plays and also added a 50-yard kickoff return.

Matt Darr: Miami’s punter had a lot of action Thursday night. With the offense scoring just seven points, Darr punted six times and averaged a whopping 58.2 yards. His longest punt was for 70 yards.

DOWN

Ryan Tannehill: Tannehill entered the game as one of the NFL’s hottest quarterbacks. He needed another big game for Miami to have a shot at the upset, but Tannehill was sloppy and looked confused at times. He threw for 300 yards but also had two interceptions and was sacked five times. Tannehill fell to 0-4 at Gillette Stadium.

Lamar Miller: Miami’s running back had a bad game as well. Miller rushed for just 15 yards on nine carries. He did have a touchdown, but he averaged just 1.7 yards per carry. Miller got off to a slow start and the game quickly got away from the Dolphins. Once the Patriots got a big lead, Miami had no choice but to abandon Miller and the running game.
