Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill knows he's made progress in his third season. With one game remaining Sunday against the New York Jets, Tannehill already set career highs for touchdowns in a season (26) and passer rating (93.2).

"I feel like I'm better all-around," Tannehill said after Wednesday's practice. "I think I've grown throughout the season and gotten better each week. The guys around me have been playing well at the same time. When the whole offense elevates its play, it's easy to get better."

Tannehill solidified his case to be Miami's starter against next season. He is sixth in NFL history in passing yards (10,993) over his first three seasons. Tannehill also had six games with triple-digit passer ratings this year and has a chance for his first 4,000-yard season.

Tannehill also believes better days are ahead, not only for him but the Dolphins organization.

Quarterbacks ultimately are judged by wins and losses, and Tannehill is 23-24 as a starter. Miami (8-7) entered this season with playoff aspirations that didn't come to fruition. The team was officially eliminated from the postseason last weekend.
