Not Ryan Tannehill's finest half to christen Hard Rock Stadium

This is not Ryan Tannehill's best half of football. That is certain.

The Miami Dolphins quarterback has done little in the first half of this 2016 Miami Dolphins home opener to convince Dolphins fans he is the answer at quarterback this franchise needs.

Tannehill has thrown two interceptions in the first half, including one that Briean Boddy-Calhoun returned 27 yards for a touchdown. Tannehill had already thrown an interception to former Dolphins cornerback Jamar Taylor on Miami's first series of the game.

That was actually the first pass ever at Hard Rock Stadium.

(Well, first regular season pass since the naming rights went to Hard Rock).

The Browns lead the Dolphins 13-10 at halftime. And yes, Tannehill did have a moment of clarity amid the dark times.

Tannehill completed a 26-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker that gave the Dolphins the lead in the game. That was before the Miami offense gave the lead back, of course.

All said so far, Tannehill has completed 12 of 19 passes for 126 yards, two INTs and the one TD in the first half. That included a garbage time 28-yard completion to Kenny Stills as time ran out in the half.

Tannehill has a 60.6 quarterback rating.

The Miami defense has been no prize, either, by the way.

Terrelle Pryor, playing some at receiver and some at quarterback, has been hard to stop. Cody Kessler just authored a go-ahead field goal drive with less than two minutes to play in the half.
