Tannehill completed 13 of 19 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 35-32 win over the Chiefs. He added 37 yards on three carries and a two-point conversion and lost a fumble during the contest.
After a botched field-goal attempt gave the Titans a shot to win the game in the final minute, Tannehill calmly scrambled for a gain of 18 yards, hit Anthony Firsker for a 20-yard completion, and then found Adam Humphries across the middle for the 23-yard touchdown before running in the two-point conversion. To be sure, Derrick Henry did much of the heavy lifting during Sunday's upset, but Tannehill has been the perfect complement to Tennessee's formula of pounding the ball and playing solid defense and he's now 3-1 as a starter. After the team's Week 11 bye, Tannehill will face off against division rival Jacksonville, which ranks 10th-best in the league with an opponent quarterback rating of 88.9.
Tannehill completed 27 of 39 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 9 against Carolina. He also added four carries for 38 yards and another score.
Tannehill put up a big statistical performance, highlighted by his second 300-yard passing performance in his last three games. However, he also threw two interceptions, one of which led directly to a Carolina touchdown that put the Titans down 10-0. Still, Tannehill has offered a vertical element to the team's offense, illustrated by long receptions from A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe. That said, he should remain under center as the Titans head into their Week 10 matchup against the Chiefs.
Tannehill completed 21 of 33 pass attempts for 193 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 27-23 win against the Buccaneers.
The 31-year-old signal-caller has offered a welcomed change of pace at the quarterback position for Tennessee, completing better than 70 percent of his passes and boasting a 5:1 TD:INT ratio in two games as the starter. Week 9 presents a challenging matchup with Carolina's top-10 pass defense awaiting on the slate, but Tannehill has proven capable of producing against capable opponents before, lighting up the Chargers' talented secondary for 312 passing yards and two touchdowns in Week 7.
