Ryan Tannehill can provide the Tennessee Titans value in crunch time.
Ryan Tannehill was amazing for the Tennessee Titans last season. From the moment he took over the offense it was apparent that he provided a spark that Marcus Mariota just couldn’t.
The offensive tempo immediately picked up, and the players at skill positions immediately saw an increase in production. Derrick Henry started to rush for over 100 yards a game regularly, whereas with Mariota in 2019 he only managed to get to 100 yards once.
Ryan Tannehill was an obvious upgrade from Marcus Mariota last season, but could he get the job done when it mattered most? How does Tannehill fare when it comes to a two-minute drill?
Being able to successfully convert during a two-minute drill can be crucial to a team’s success late in a game. PFF ranked Ryan Tannehill the 3rd highest-graded quarterback in 2-minute situations from last season.
Does Tannehill have the clutch gene?
This is not the only praise that Ryan Tannehill got from Pro Football Focus, though. He also made their “All Clutch Second Team” from 2019.

We saw a prime example of Ryan Tannehill’s ability to execute in clutch situations versus the Kansas City Chiefs in the regular season. The Titans got the ball down 5 versus the Chiefs with 1:21 left to go. Ryan Tannehill quickly got the Titans down the field, rushing for 18 yards and then throwing it down the field to Anthony Firkser for 20 yards.
Then, Tannehill earned his grade from PFF, putting the ball right on the money across the middle to Adam Humphries to give the Titans the lead. Tannehill ran the ball to get the 2-point conversion. One blocked field goal later and the Titans realized that they had a real chance at the playoffs. The rest is history.
Ryan Tannehill provides the Titans with something that not many quarterbacks can. He can lead the team down the field in the most intense situations, and sometimes that clutch gene is all that’s needed to make the difference between winning and losing.
