QBR: Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill shines

By James Walker

The future looks bright for Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The rookie first-round pick got off to a solid start this season, and now he’s finishing strong.

Tannehill picked up his seventh victory of the season in a 24-10 win over the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins are 7-8 and surpassed most people's expectations due to the rapid development of Tannehill. He threw for 130 yards, two touchdowns and added 44 rushing yards on Sunday.

Here is a look at the QBRs for the AFC East:
Brady wasn't his dominant self in a 23-16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He threw for 267 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. But Brady and New England pulled out the win and remain in the hunt for one of the top two seeds in the AFC.

Fitzpatrick struggled with accuracy and turnovers in a loss to Miami. Fitzpatrick threw for 240 yards, one touchdown and had a lost fumble and late interception. McElroy was sacked 11 times and didn't have much of a chance. He threw for 185 yards and an interception.
