Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill now stands alone in the NFL record books for consecutive complete passes. With his 18th straight completion to start the game against the Houston Texans, Tannehill has completed 25 consecutive passes stretching back to the end of the Week 6 contest against the Tennessee Titans.

He passes Donovan McNabb who threw 24 straight completions in November 2004, the final 10 in one game, then the first 14 in the next.

Tannehill's streak ended two plays later when Dion Sims dropped a pass. He is now 18-for-19 on the day with 282 passing yards and four touchdowns. He's been sacked four times.

The drop also ended Miami's drive, with the team having to settle for a field goal from Andrew Franks. Miami leads 44-20 on Houston mid-way through the fourth quarter. Miami has 471 yards of total offense, while Houston, who ended the first half with just 65 yards, are moving the ball again and are closing in on 300 yards of offense.
