Seahawks vs. Dolphins, Week 12: Ryan Tannehill leads Miami rally

Marc Serota

Miami needed a couple of late scores to beat Seattle on Sunday.

The Miami Dolphins picked up their fifth win of the season with a 24-21 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12. The Miami defense did a solid job in the victory, and as SB Nation's The Phinsider pointed out after the game was over, quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a huge role in rallying the team:

The defense was the strong point for the team this week, but the story really is the production from Ryan Tannehill and the offense late in the game. Tannehill stepped up and carried the team, and showed the flashes that make him look like the Dolphins may have finally answered their quarterback question.

Tannehill led the Dolphins on a pair of scoring drives in final six minutes, including a march down the field that resulted in a game-winning field goal as time expired. Tannehill finished 18-26 passing for 253 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.

Behind Tannehill's leadership, Miami piled up 435 yards of offense and averaged nearly eight yards per play from scrimmage. Seattle was limited to 312 yards of offense, and running back Marshawn Lynch managed just 46 yards on the ground.

Miami will try to build on this win when it takes on New England in Week 13.
