Luck was the most celebrated of the group coming out of Stanford, and he still could end up being the best. But if you watched Griffin break off a long run when it was needed most or saw Wilson throw a 46-yard touchdown pass with 1:20 left to beat the Patriots, you know he’s got competition.
That includes Tannehill, who wasn’t as dramatic, but was remarkably mistake-free for a quarterback playing in his sixth NFL game.
‘‘His growth from game to game has been critical and incredible,’’ Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano said. ‘‘He has a very bright future.’’
The same could be said of the rest of the rookie crop, too.
