2. Ryan Tannehill will find a way

The trio of Derrick Henry, A.J. Brown, and Julio Jones is one of the most fearsome groups of skill players in the NFL when all three are healthy and on their game. Unfortunately, you can only say that in theory because there hasn’t been a game this season where all three have been 100% and on the field together.

The one person who always seems to show up is Ryan Tannehill.

Whether that means running for a touchdown, putting himself in a position to draw a roughing the passer penalty, making an incredible throw, or just making smart decisions when the team can’t afford turnovers, Tannehill is there.

Since Ryan Tannehill has taken over as the Tennessee Titans quarterback the team is 25-10 and he has been brutally efficient.

You can say that he needs other people on the field to support him, but that argument just doesn’t pass the smell test. There have been too many times where players with bigger names are struggling, and it is Tannehill that provides the spark that ignites this team’s success.
