Cardinals 24, Dolphins 21 OT

Tannehill's stats belie big mistakes

GLENDALE, Ariz. — In a game that could have been Dolphins rookie Ryan Tannehill's coming of age, he showed his youth.

Tannehill had two late turnovers — a fumble in the fourth quarter and an interception in overtime — and Jesuit High graduate Jay Feely hit a 46-yard field goal in overtime to lift the Cardinals.

Tannehill threw for 431 yards, surpassing Dan Marino's team rookie record of 322. Brian Hartline set the team mark with 253 yards receiving (on 12 catches) and Davone Bess added seven for 123. It was the first time two Dolphins went over 100 yards in a game since Oronde Gadsden and Chris Chambers in 2001.

"I am kind of speechless," Hartline said. "… Losing isn't fun but there are games where you just get beat. I don't mind saying it — I don't feel we got beat."

Arizona forced overtime on Kevin Kolb's 15-yard touchdown on fourth down to Andre Roberts with 22 seconds left.
