The improved play of tight end Jonnu Smith.

The Tennessee Titans are off to a rare 2-0 start for the first time in 12 years and only the third since 1999.

Despite rocky patches within their first two games, the Titans have been able to close each battle with a victory as they sit alone at the top of the AFC South.

While much of the credit will be given to the stellar performance of Ryan Tannehill, who tossed four touchdowns this past Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a not-so-secret part of the offense has been the domination of tight end Jonnu Smith.

Now, you probably remember Jonnu Smith as a player who looked great in his first few games with Delanie Walker and then disappeared from the stat sheet for about 18 months while the Marcus Mariota era was wrapping up in Tennessee.

Well, if you have been so enthralled with the resurgence of Corey Davis or the lazershow that Tannehill has been putting up this season, then you might have taken this breakout season for granted so far.

Let’s take a look at the emergence of Smith in a Ryan Tannehill led offense statistcally, on the field and even a look ahead at his future.
