Dolphins mid-season stats and projections

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins have completed their first eight games. We take a look at how those stats project for the full season.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are eight games into their 2015 NFL season, meaning we have reached the half-way point of the year for the club. Things have not gone according to expectations so far, with the team sitting in last place in the AFC East with an 0-4 record against their rivals and a 3-5 record overall. While we are all hoping the team can still turn around the season, and there is the possibility given the Dolphins are just two games out of the AFC Playoffs picture right now, we can also take a look at the individual performances for the team, and project what the final stats will be.

Ryan Tannehill, quarterback

Current stats:

192-for-299, 2237 yards, 13 TDs, 9 INTs, 23 sacks, 88.7 rating

Projected stats:

384-for-598, 4,474 yards, 26 TDs, 18 INTs, 46 sacks, 88.7 rating

  • 3rd most completions in a season in team history, eight completions behind the team record he set last year.
  • 4th highest attempts in team history and a personal high for Tannehill.
  • 3rd highest passing yardage mark for the team; it would also be a career high for the fourth-year quarterback, surpassing his 4,045 yards set last year.
  • Touchdowns would match Dan Marino's 1987 total, the seventh highest total in team history, one touchdown pass behind Tannehill's career high set last year.
  • Interceptions would match Bob Griese's 1967 total, the seventh highest total in team history. Would also set a new single-season mark for Tannehill.
  • Passer rating would be Tannehill's second highest single-season mark, 4.1 points behind last year's career high.
