Many fans may have forgotten already that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill used to be a wide receiver. He may have changed positions at Texas A&M during the 2010 season, but the wheels are still there, even though we didn't see much of his rushing prowess earlier this season. He popped off 48 yards on four carries in Week 4 but didn't top 12 yards again until Week 11, when he rushed four times for 21 yards. He followed that performance up with games of 36, 22 and 56 rushing yards. 48 of those 56 yards gained Sunday came on a read-option play.
