Ryan Tannehill: Key turnover in playoff loss

Tannehill completed 18 of 26 passes for 165 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a wild card round loss to the Ravens. He added two rushes for six yards.

Analysis: It appeared that Tannehill and the Titans' offense would have their way against the Ravens after an impressive opening drive that was capped by a 10-yard touchdown throw to A.J. Brown. However, the team failed to find the end zone again, limiting Tannehill's overall production. Despite the struggles, he still found Brown and Anthony Firkser for big gains throughout the contest -- including completions of 35, 28 and 14 yards. Tannehill will look to bounce back from the disappointing postseason exit as he will return to be the team's starting quarterback once again for the 2021 campaign.

Ryan Tannehill: Does damage on ground in win

Tannehill completed 18 of 27 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown and gained 38 rushing yards and two TDs on seven carries in Sunday's 41-38 win over the Texans.

Analysis: The Titans took full advantage of a matchup against one of the league's softest run defenses, with Tannehill equaling Derrick Henry in trips to the end zone. The quarterback wraps up the regular season with a career-high seven rushing TDs -- five of them coming in the last three games -- in addition to his career-best 33 passing TDs. Tannehill will now prepare for a duel with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens next Sunday in the wild-card round.

Ryan Tannehill: Freezes up at Lambeau Field

Tannehill completed 11 of 24 pass attempts for 121 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday. He rushed three times for 55 yards and another touchdown, but also lost a fumble in a 40-14 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: Tannehill and the entire Tennessee passing attack were under duress all evening after falling behind by two scores right out of the gates. The Titans' usually solid offensive line struggled mightily when asked to protect against the Packers' athletic edge rushers. A predictable gameplan combined with snowy conditions at Lambeau Field led to an inefficient and poor showing from anyone not named Derrick Henry. Luckily for his fantasy managers, Tannehill was able to rip off a big touchdown run to offset what would have been an ugly passing performance. Expect the Titans' signal-caller to perform better in a much softer matchup that will take place indoors against the Texans on Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill: Finds end zone five times

Tannehill completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 273 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15 against the Lions. He added three rushes for 21 yards and two touchdowns.

Analysis: Tannehill had the Titans' offense moving with ease for the entire game, and he did his best Derrick Henry impression with two goal-line touchdown rushes. He also did plenty of damage with his arm, throwing for three touchdowns for the second time in his last three games. Tannehill's longest completion of the day came midway through the first quarter when he connected with Corey Davis for a 75-yard touchdown deep down the left sideline. He and the Titans will draw a stiffer test in Week 16 against the Packers.

Ryan Tannehill: Has efficient performance

Tannehill completed 19 of 24 pass attempts for 212 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Derrick Henry dominated the Jaguars on the ground, limiting Tannehill's need to take to the air. However, Tannehill made the most of his opportunities by connecting with A.J. Brown for a number of big plays. Most notable was a 37-yard touchdown toss to cap the team's first offensive possession. Tannehill connected with Geoff Swain for five yards out to tally his second trip to the end zone. The Titans should have to take to air more in Week 15 against the Lions, giving Tannehill more chance to rack up yards and touchdowns.

Ryan Tannehill: Records season-best yardage

Tannehill completed 29 of 45 pass attempts for 389 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 13 against the Browns.

Analysis: The Titans were down 38-7 at halftime, leading to 31 second-half pass attempts for Tannehill. He took advantage of the rare volume by topping 375 yards for the second time since taking over as the team's quarterback in 2019. Two of Tannehill's touchdowns went to MyCole Pruitt, the first of which was a 22-yard toss down the seam. While Tannehill has largely been efficient this season, he isn't likely to throw 45 passes in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Ryan Tannehill: Makes most off 22 attempts

Tannehill completed 13 of 22 pass attempts for 221 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 12 against the Colts. He added three yards and an additional touchdown on the ground.

Analysis: Tannehill threw just seven passes in the second half, as Tennessee held a three-score lead for the entirety of the final two quarters. However, he still managed to produce thanks to a long 69-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Brown in the first quarter, the majority of which came after the catch. Tannehill also found the end zone with his legs on a one-yard scamper just before halftime. Tannehill will likely be forced to do more to earn a win in Week 13 against the Browns.

Ryan Tannehill: Impressive in second-half rally

Tannehill completed 22 of 31 passes for 259 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 11 against the Ravens.

Analysis: Tannehill and the Titans' offense was stalled for the entirety of the first half, during which he managed only 42 passing yards and a touchdown. However, he led a strong comeback effort in the third and fourth quarters, highlighted by a 14-yard touchdown toss to A.J. Brown. The effort marked the first time Tannehill has surpassed 200 yards since Week 8, though he has managed multiple throwing scores in all but two of his starts on the campaign. The Titans draw a pivotal Week 12 matchup against the Colts.

Ryan Tannehill: Rough night in divisional loss

Tannehill completed 15 of 27 passes for 147 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Titans' 34-17 loss to the Colts on Thursday night. He also rushed twice for nine yards.

Analysis: Four days after taking nine hits overall from the Bears, including three sacks, Tannehill was knocked around six more times and taken down once in a game in which the Colts top-ranked defense seemed to pick up substantial steam in the second half. Tannehill compiled most of his numbers in the first half, when he capped the opening drive of the contest off with a five-yard touchdown to D'Onta Foreman. The veteran quarterback would go on to lead another pair of scoring marches that totaled 10 points before halftime, but he was shut out in the second half and eventually replaced by Logan Woodside for Tennessee's final possession. Tannehill will now have some extra down time to rest up before attempting to bounce back from his second sub-200-yard effort of the season when the Titans face off with the Ravens in a Week 11 rematch of January's AFC Divisional Round Game.

Ryan Tannehill: Struggles to get going

Tannehill completed 10 of 21 pass attempts for 158 yards and two touchdowns in Week 9 against the Bears.

Analysis: The Titans jumped out to a 17-0 lead by the end of the first half, limiting Tannehill to just eight pass attempts across the third and fourth quarters combined. He also lacked his usual efficiency, completing under 50 percent of his pass attempts for the first time this season. Even so, Tannehill played turnover free football for the fourth time on the campaign, managing the Titans' to a win. He will draw a tough matchup against the Colts in Week 10.

Ryan Tannehill: Throws two TDs in loss

Tannehill completed 18 of 30 pass attempts for 233 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while adding 20 yards on two carries during Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Tannehill completed a pedestrian 60 percent of his passes for the second straight week as he struggled through the early going. Although his team trailed throughout and ultimately suffered its second straight loss, he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with touchdown passes to A.J. Brown and Corey Davis in the fourth quarter. Tannehill sports an impressive 17:3 TD:INT for the season, but his passing yardage totals have been inconsistent and he's now been held under 250 yards in five of seven games. He'll look to improve his efficiency next Sunday in a tough matchup with the Bears.

Ryan Tannehill: Nearly completes comeback win

Tannehill completed 18 of 30 pass attempts for 220 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the Steelers.

Analysis: Tannehill attempted only 11 passes for a total of 50 yards and a touchdown in the first half. However, with the Titans down 24-7, he was forced to turn to the air regularly in the comeback effort. Though the team fell short due to a missed field goal by Stephen Gostkowski, Tannehill racked up an additional touchdown and 170 yards in the final two quarters. A large portion of that production came on a 73-yard completion to A.J. Brown that reached the end zone midway through the third quarter. Though it was a down performance for Tannehill, he has still managed multiple touchdown passes in five of six contests this season. He and the Titans will draw a Week 8 matchup against the Bengals.

Ryan Tannehill: Four TDs in wild OT win

Tannehill completed 30 of 41 passes for 364 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-26 win over the Texans. He also threw a successful two-point conversion and lost a fumble.

Analysis: Tannehill tossed a trio of first-half touchdowns, finding Anthony Firkser from seven yards out, A.J. Brown from six and Adam Humphries from 22. The offense ran primarily through Derrick Henry after that point, but Tannehill came up clutch when he needed to. The quarterback put his team up by six in the fourth quarter with a two-point conversion following a 94-yard Henry touchdown run, then found Brown for a seven-yard touchdown to force overtime with four seconds left in regulation. Tannehill's thriving despite Tennessee's heavy reliance on the run, with a 13:2 TD:INT through five games heading into a high-profile Week 7 showdown with the Steelers.

Ryan Tannehill: Four total TDs in blowout of Bills

Tannehill completed 21 of 28 attempts with 195 passing yards and three passing touchdowns, adding four carries for 42 yards and a rushing score during Tuesday's 42-16 win against Buffalo.

Analysis: Tannehill's final score of the night went under review, after it appeared he may have drifted over the line of scrimmage before connecting with Jonnu Smith for a seven-yard TD. There was inconclusive evidence to overturn the call, however, extending an already prolific outing for the 32-year-old signal-caller. Tannehill has posted 13 multi-TD efforts in 14 starts since Week 7 of last season, as the Titans head into a Week 6 matchup against Houston's 21st-ranked scoring defense.

Ryan Tannehill: Down two key pass catchers Week 5

Tannehill will be working with a depleted group of pass catchers in Tuesday's game against the Bills with receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries not expected to be activated from the reserve/COVID list for the Week 5 contest, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Tannehill was at risk of having to play without all three of the Titans' starting receivers, but fortunately for the quarterback, A.J. Brown (knee) -- who is listed as questionable -- will be active after missing Tennessee's previous two games. Brown is expected to be joined in the lineup by Kalif Raymond and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, neither of whom has started an NFL game. Additionally, tight end MyCole Pruitt remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though he typically doesn't see as much involvement in the passing game as position mates Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser.

Ryan Tannehill: Game reportedly moved to Tuesday

Tannehill and the Titans are now reportedly slated to face the Bills this coming Tuesday night, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Analysis: The game was originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon and this reported postponement occurring as planned hinges on no further positive COVID-19 tests within the Titans' organization.

Ryan Tannehill: Game won't be played Week 4

Tannehill and the Titans will not be taking on the Steelers in Week 4 after additional personnel within the organization have tested positive for COVID-19, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The initial plan was simply to reschedule the Oct. 4 matchup for the following Monday or Tuesday, but it now appears both teams will receive a Week 4 bye and the game will be rescheduled at a yet-to-be-determined date. Practice facilities will be closed in Tennessee until further notice after an additional player and personnel member returned positive tests, with a re-open unlikely until the outbreak has been contained.

Ryan Tannehill: Sunday's game to be rescheduled

Sunday's game between the Titans and Steelers, which Tannehill was in line to start, will be rescheduled.

Analysis: The postponement arrives after four Titans' players and five team personnel members tested positive for COVID-19, ESPN.com reports. Per the league's statement "details on the new game date and time on either Monday or Tuesday will be announced as soon as possible."

Ryan Tannehill: Tops 300 yards

Tannehill completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 321 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 3 against Minnesota.

Analysis: Tannehill topped 300 yards for the first time in the 2020 season, averaging 8.7 yards per attempt. In particular, he showed a connection on deep passes with Kalif Raymond, logging completions of 61 and 44 yards. On the other hand, Tannehill did fail to find the end zone for the first time this season as the team settled for six field goals. He and the Titans will face a stiff test in Week 4 as they take on the Steelers.

September 27, 2020 7:54 PM EST

Ryan Tannehill: Remains on a tear

Tannehill completed 18 of 24 pass attempts for 239 yards and four touchdowns during Sunday's 33-30 win against the Jaguars. He added 12 rushing yards on four carries.

Analysis: So much for Tannehill's regression to the mean, as the 2019 Comeback Player of the Year continues to tear up the league, posting another multi-TD passing performance in Week 2. With Sunday's impressive outing, Tannehill now has multiple passing scores in nine consecutive regular-season outings, with three or more passing TDs in three of those appearances. What's remarkable is Tannehill's efficiency during that span, as he has averaged only 26.2 pass attempts per game since Week 10 of last season. If Tannehill has been a stalwart of your fantasy lineup so far, Week 3 would not be the time to pull him, as he goes up against a Vikings defense that has surrendered 578 passing yards and five passing touchdowns through its first two appearances of the year.
