1. Ryan Tannehill will throw for 300 yards
It’s hard to imagine Ryan Tannehill putting up big numbers in this game for a few reasons.
- The Ravens own the No. 6 pass defense in the NFL, allowing 207.2 passing yards per game.
- Tannehill is coming off a contest in which he threw for just 72 yards against the New England Patriots
But this is a game that sets up well for Tannehill despite both of those things.
For starters, the Ravens are going to be selling out to stop Derrick Henry, which should leave Tannehill with plenty of opportunities to hit open receivers, and he’ll undoubtedly make a few big plays happen with the play action pass.
Also, there’s a chance that the Titans are chasing points in this game at some point, so Tennessee might have to abandon the run in order to climb back into a game in which they are trailing.
Whatever the case might be, look for the Titans QB to get back on track and have himself a big game in the divisional round.
