Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been disappointed with his performance as well as frustrated at the lack of offense in the last few games, having lost five of the last six games they have played. Tannehill spoke with Sun Sentinel writer Craig Davis about a few missed opportunities in last week's game against the San Francisco 49ers:

"Yeah, it's frustrating. I had plenty of chances to make a throw at the end and didn't make the throw. All I can do is keep grinding and keep practicing, working to get better."

So far this season, Tannehill has thrown for 2,709 yards while completing 57 percent of his passes. He has also thrown eight touchdowns along with 12 interceptions. Tannehill did get the Dolphins back into position to possibly win on Sunday, getting the Dolphins down to the 49ers' 35 yard line late in the fourth quarter before four consecutive passes gave the ball back to the 49ers.

A key miss to wide receiver Davone Bess was the best chance the Dolphins had to staying in the game:

"Yeah, it's tight coverage, but you've got to find a way to sneak that one in there," Tannehill said. "I don't know exactly what the answer is, but we have to make the plays that are there. You can't win in this league scoring as few points as we are."

The Dolphins are preparing to play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium. The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff and the game will be broadcast on CBS with radio coverage on WINZ 940 AM and WBGG 105.9 FM.
