Ryan Tannehill farewell?

Not unlike the Buccaneers situation with Jameis Winston and the Jaguars with Blake Bortles, will the Dolphins be saying goodbye to starter Ryan Tannehill after this season?

That’s an answer for the offseason. For Sunday, Tannehill will try to bolster his case with one more good performance and a victory. He’s had injuries in the last three Seasons that have cost him a ton of games. This would include: his shoulder injury which had him sidelined for five weeks earlier this year.

Will Tannehill be able to be effective on the road in Western New York or will it be 1 final indicator that Miami should move on to another quarterback?

Contain Josh Allen’s Mobility

After the Bills made the playoffs for the first time in almost 20 years a year ago, they’ve had a disappointing 2018 season. However, one of the bright spots has been the play, in particular the wheels, of rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

He’s averaging 6.7 yards per rush and has over 550 yards this season. That would include the 135 yards on just 9 carries in Miami earlier this month.

Allen has to be accounted for, or he will tuck it under and take off. And, the Dolphins, in particular linebackers Kiko Alonso and Raekwon McMillan better be ready to cut him off Sunday.

Playing out the string

As is the case with the Buccaneers match up with the Falcons, the Dolphins and Bills have nothing to play for on the final Sunday of the season, except for pride.

There is some uncertainty about Coach Adam Gase and whether or not, he will be back in 2019. Gase and the Dolphins secured a playoff spot in Buffalo late in the 2016 season, but If his team looks lethargic and plays poorly, it maybe one final detriment that gets him ousted.

However, if it’s a game where the Dolphins play well and end up winning to go 8 – 8, it could help him come back for another season at the helm in South Florida.
