Emblematic of his NFL debut, rookie Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill finished his tour underneath backup Texans defensive finish Tim Jamison for a 12-yard detriment Sunday afternoon.
The pouch was utterly a exclamation indicate to a frustrating afternoon for a former Texas AM star, who vows to learn from a Texans’ 30-10 feat during Reliant Stadium. The speed of a diversion is dramatically opposite this year for Tannehill. That indicate was driven home late in a second entertain of a deteriorate opener.
In a bit of a stroke after starting his expostulate on a Dolphins’ six-yard line, Tannehill attempted to find receiver Legedu Naanee on a point settlement on second and 13 from a Miami 47. Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph review a play ideally for a interception, commencement a method of 4 uninterrupted Miami drives finale in turnovers.
“I suspicion a plcae was good, a timing was good,” pronounced Tannehill, who was 20-for-36 for 219 yards with 3 interceptions. “He usually done a good play on it. That’s something that I’ll learn from. Obviously it’s a small bit faster out there than it is in practice.
“In use that round gets in there and he catches it and runs. A good actor done a good play, and we usually have to learn from it.”
The subsequent dual drives finished in interceptions after defensive finish J.J. Watt batted a 6-foot-4, 222-pounder’s passes in a identical demeanour in that Tannehill threw 8 interceptions that were tipped, batted or shielded final deteriorate with a Aggies.
The Texans usually got a margin idea after Joseph’s interception, though they capitalized entirely on their drives after dual interceptions off sloping passes and a fail liberation in a camber of 3 uninterrupted Miami descent plays late in a initial half.
“A integrate of those are usually bad breaks,” Tannehill said. “The first, apparently (Joseph) done a good play. Then after that, dual sloping balls and a fumble. That’s usually one of those things where it seems everything’s going wrong that could presumably go wrong. If we take any one of those plays out, a rest of them substantially don’t happen.”
Unfortunately for a eighth altogether collect in a 2012 NFL draft, he couldn’t take any of those turnovers back.
“It’s been a whirlwind going behind to a past year,” he said. “You usually have to learn from this week and take it day by day.”
If zero else, Tannehill during slightest tender teammates with his composure.
“He never got rattled,” Miami left tackle Jake Long said. “He kept entrance out there and slinging it. He had confidence. We got him pressured and strike too many times today, so we have to urge that.”
