Ryan Tannehill proving that he isn’t “saltwater” for the Tennessee Titans
By Will Lomas
What makes this situation different?
That isn’t the case with Tennessee though. The Titans are seeing performances week in and week out from Ryan Tannehill that are both aggressive and safe. While he has three interceptions as the starter, one came from a deflected pass off of A.J. Brown‘s hands and the other came as his arm was getting hit on a throw.
If you are willing to overlook those things, his play on the field has actually warranted a 9:1 TD to INT ratio.
Over the last four weeks the Titans are 3-1 against teams with a combined record of 17-17 (when you take out their result against Tennessee). During that time the Titans have scored 26.3 points per game and though it is a small sample size, that would be the 9th best number in the NFL at this point.
It isn’t like Tannehill is being dragged by his teammates either, the defense has become much less intimidating recently and he also missed Corey Davis and Delanie Walker in his most productive game of the season.
This is a graph from last week before his impressive game against Kansas City yesterday.
That obviously means that the Titans are the 13th most offensively improved team in the NFL despite:
-A rash of injuries and a suspension on the OL
-The confusing usage of Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis
-Constantly rotating WRs
-The QB switch that really ignited this change.
