Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill sets Career, Franchise Records

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – A year earlier, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was still with the Miami Dolphins, where he concluded his seventh season with the Dolphins. Robinson engineered a trade in March 2019 that landed the signal caller in Tennessee, where he began the campaign as the backup to Marcus Mariota.

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Following an impressive 43-13 win at the Cleveland Browns in the season opener, the Tennessee Titans lost four of their next five contests, including a shutout at the Denver Broncos on October 13th. At 2-4, there was little indication that the Titans would be playing well into January.

With a home date against the Los Angeles Chargers next on the schedule, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel made the decision to insert eighth-year veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill into the starting lineup for the first time since he arrived in Tennessee.
