DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Ryan Tannehill is playing the best football of his brief pro career, which is a big reason the Miami Dolphins are mounting a late-season surge toward a playoff berth.

During the Dolphins' three-game winning streak this month, Tannehill's passer rating is 103.2, significantly higher than his career figure of 81.5. He has completed 65 percent of his passes in December for 843 yards with eight touchdown passes and only two interceptions. He has thrown for the go-ahead score in the final minutes each of the past two weeks to beat Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady.

As a result, the Dolphins (8-6) could clinch the final AFC wild-card berth as soon as Sunday at Buffalo.
