Ryan Tannehill continues to prove himself

Ryan Tannehill continues to make a strong argument for himself that he should be the starting quarterback for this Tennessee Titans team long after the 2019 season ends.

Tannehill once again continued to be decisive, as he spread the ball around to his play makers out wide and over the middle, which ultimately allowed his star running back to flourish, and the Jags were unable to stack the box as often as they would have presumably liked.

This often left a ton of holes for the former Heisman-winning running back from Alabama to choose from whenever the former Texas A&M wide receiver turned starting Titans quarterback wasn’t deciding which holes to hit himself.

This Titans team can legitimately compete with anyone as long as the former No. 8 overall pick can continue to simply manage the game the way he has been doing through five starts.

Tannehill finished the game by completing 77 percent of his passes (14-of-18) for 259 yards and two touchdowns, while also adding 40 yards and two more touchdowns on the ground. On the season Tannehill, has completed over 72 percent of his passes for 1,420 yards to go along with 10 touchdowns and only four interceptions through five games as the starter.
