The Miami Dolphins put a "W" on the board for the second streak week last Sunday, this time defeating the St. Louis Rams 17-14. Each week, we take a look at the top individual performances from the Dolphins' most recent contest, awarding one of them, based on a fan vote, our Phinsider Game Ball. In Week 6, the game ball goes to...

The Miami Dolphins beat the St. Louis Rams this past weekend 17-14, improving their season record to 3&3 and tying them with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills for the AFC East division lead. The Dolphins did not perform up to the level of play we have seen in other games this season, but they did enough to come away with the win.

Our nominees for the game ball this week were quarterback Ryan Tannehill (21-for-29, 185 yards, 2 touchdowns, 112.0 passer rating, 4 rushes, 16 yards), wide receiver Marlon Moore (3 receptions, 46 yards, 1 touchdown), safety Chris Clemons (10 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 rush for first down on fake punt), defensive end Olivier Vernon (4 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 tackles for loss, three QB hits), and punter Brandon Fields (6 punts, 53.8 yards per kick average, 2 punts inside 20 yards line, long of 63 yards).

Before we announce this week's winner, here is the list of winners from eash of the past weeks:

Our week six poll was one of the closest we have had so far this season. Rookie defensive end Vernon beat out fellow rookie Tannehill 46% to 38%. This marks the third week in a row Tannehill has been the runner up.

Congratulations to Vernon, who managed to have a huge impact on the game, despite having to miss time with an ankle sprain during the contest.

Miami has its bye this week before heading north to face the New York Jets in nine days.
