Dolphins vs. Jaguars: Ryan Tannehill has best day of year against Jacksonville

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Tannehill's two touchdown, 220-yard day helps the Dolphins beat the Jaguars.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had the best passing day of his rookie season on Sunday in the Dolphins' victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, passing for 220 yards and two touchdowns while posting a season-best 123.2 passer rating in the 24-3 victory.

Against a Jaguars team that had ranked 31st in defense, Tannehill was effective, especially in the second half. And according to the Palm Beach Post, there was a halftime adjustment that worked to Tannehill's favor — the rookie passer removed a knee brace he had worn since Week 8.

"I wore it in the first half - I slid, got it caught in the ground and bent, so I took it off at halftime," Tannehill told the Post. "It's there for a reason - it's preventative in case you get rolled up on - but it definitely felt good to move around a little bit without it."

In the second half, Tannehill completed 12 of his 14 attempts and nearly doubled his yardage from the first half.
