Proof that Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill owns the AFC South

Tennessee Titans vs Houston Texans
Let’s begin with the team that dreams of being connected to the Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers’ legacy, the Houston Texans. Ryan Tannehill has made sure Tennessee’s rivals from Space City firmly in the rearview mirror.
Despite the constant adoration of Deshaun Watson on the field, in four games with the Titans, Ryan Tannehill holds the winning record of 3-1 versus the former Clemson phenom. It isn’t just a scenario where he is riding Derrick Henry’s coattails or anything either, over that stretch Tannehill passed for 1,059 yards and racked up 12 touchdowns with just two interceptions.
In games where the Tennessee Titans defense has just refused to stop the Houston Texans, it has been Ryan Tannehill who has helped keep the team in the game until they can finally finish them off.
It isn’t just a case of Tannehill thriving against good quarterbacks in the division and playing up to the best. Here is how he stacked up against the team that has gone the longest without winning the AFC South title: the Indianapolis Colts.
