WATCH: Ryan Tannehill returns to WR roots on perfect trick play

Ryan Tannehill did plenty of throwing Sunday against the Bills, but he took a turn at receiver, too.

The Miami Dolphins have made use of plays throughout the season, but Sunday marked the first time they’ve pulled off this one.

With 11:05 left in the third quarter against the Bills, quarterback Ryan Tannehill pitched the ball backward to Jarvis Landry, who was lined up in the backfield. Landry took it left, stopped on dime, turned and heaved a pass across the field to Tannehill on a swing route. Tannehill made the catch — the second of his four-year career — and ran 10 yards for the first down.

It wasn’t the most beautifully thrown pass by Landry, but it certainly got the job done as the Bills’ defense was completely fooled on the play. Tannehill, a former wide receiver in college, still has good hands.
