Miami Dolphins win today but Buffalo has a better QB situation for tomorrow

You can argue Ryan Tannehill was the better and more polished quarterback on Sunday. It’s hard to say otherwise because he made few mistakes and threw more accurately and had more touchdowns and a higher quarterback rating than Buffalo’s Josh Allen. So the Dolphins should be fine with who they had under center, or rather, in shotgun this game.

But one game does not tell the whole story about the difference between Tannehill and Allen, the new Bills quarterback you’ll be seeing on the opposing sideline the next few years.

One game actually should make you wary about the future because that was certainly something Allen put on display in a losing cause. If you’re a football fan, it was fun and exciting to watch.

If you’re a Dolphins fan it was unnerving and worrisome because Allen is merely a rookie.

And because Tannehill showed in his seventh season he’s polished his game to a certain solid level, but Allen showed in only his seventh NFL start his ceiling is way higher and way more promising than anything the Dolphins have.

“A little Ben Roethlisberger,” Dolphins safety Reshad Jones said of Allen. “He’s got a similar game. A big guy. He can run. Probably one of the strongest arms in the NFL. I think that guy’s going to be good.”

Around the victorious Dolphins locker room — where this 21-17 victory over the Bills helped keep the season and playoff hopes alive — players were heard discussing … Allen.

Allen’s arm.

His running ability.

And, here’s the part you should worry about, his future.
