The Dolphins quarterback was speaking prior to their crucial divisional game against the New York Jets on Sunday, with the outcome of the contest potentially going a long way to deciding who may make the post-season.
Tannehill told the club's website: "We're under the impression that we've got to win all of our games now, starting against the Jets. At 5-6 we're not in an ideal position but we're happy to be in the hunt.
"We want to score more points. We've had opportunities to do that and make plays. We've got to make sure we can covert situations into points and put ourselves in the best position to win games."
The Dolphins and the Jets have the same record in the AFC East, with both teams hopeful of securing a wildcard spot behind the New England Patriots.
