Judging by the score, you would think Patriots quarterback Tom Brady once again led the AFC East in Total Quarterback Rating this week, but that wasn’t the case.
Miami rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill's clutch, come-from-behind performance earned him the highest QBR (88.9) in the division and the second highest in the NFL.
Here is the entire QBR list for the AFC East in Week 12:
No. 1: Tannehill, Dolphins, 88.9
No. 2: Brady, Patriots, 82.4
No. 3: Mark Sanchez, Jets, 22.9
No. 4: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bills, 16.3
Fitzpatrick and Sanchez both had forgettable nights in losses for Buffalo and New York, respectively. Sanchez threw for 301 yards but had an interception and had an embarrassing fumble return for a touchdown. Fitzpatrick was inaccurate and off the mark in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The New England Patriots scored 49 points in a blowout win over the New York Jets in Week 12. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins needed a late field goal to barely edge the Seattle Seahawks, 24-21.
