Quarter Back:

Many think Ryan Tannehill is the Dolphins QB of the future. I ask, “what makes you so sure?” If Bengals fans rip Dalton, imagine what they would do to Tannehill? For all the hoopla surrounding his rookie year, his numbers weren’t very good:

While some of his issues may be the imbalance in the play-calling (66% pass plays) and his league leading 32 sacks, some of this is on Tannehill. Dalton, on the other hand, comes in red hot as only the 9th QB in history to have 3 straight games with 3+ TDs and 300+ yards. Despite all the criticism, Dalton is now 9th in Completion %, 4th in yards, T-4th in TDs and 6th in rating. Dalton has 11 TDs in his last 3 games. Tannehill has 11 TDs all season.

Advantage: Bengals
