What if the Tennessee Titans got 17 games vs the AFC South?
Even after those accounts, it is hard to grasp just how dominant Tannehill has been against the other teams competing for the AFC South crown. When you all those numbers together you get a quarterback with an 8-2 record throwing for 2,319 yards and scoring 27 touchdowns to just 2 interceptions.
If the Tennessee Titans could get a 17-game schedule against AFC South opponents, his stat line would put him in the conversation for MVP:
A 14-3 season with 3,948 passing yards, 46 touchdowns, and just three interceptions, would be hard to ignore, even for people who are still pounding the table for guys like Kyler Murray who might turn out to be good one day, but who definitely should be ranked lower than Ryan Tannehill.
NFL legacies are made by the games you win, but talking points come from the stats you put on paper. Since Ryan Tannehill plays in a smart offense that utilizes Derrick Henry, he doesn’t get the same bloating passing stats that other quarterbacks get.
However, his wins tell the real story and his legacy is being right now and it is being built on the backs of the AFC South teams that he is dominating along the way to becoming a quarterback who is impossible to overlook.
