The Miami Dolphins lost to the New England Patriots last Sunday, despite some noteworthy individual performances. Each week, the Phinsider community recognizes the top individual performance from the most recent Dolphins game, voting to award a game ball to one of up to five nominees.
The nominees for this week were:
Brian Hartline, Wide Receiver: 5 receptions, 84 yards
Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback: 13-for-29, 186 yards, 5 rushes, 19 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 fumble lost

Brandon Fields, Punter: 5 kicks, 51.8 yards per kick average, 1 touchback, 2 kicks inside 20, long 60 yards
