Wild Ryan Tannehill stat shows Titans may be Super Bowl bound

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans will face the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday for the right to play in Super Bowl LIV, and one stat suggests they have a good chance.

Check out the rare company Tannehill finds himself in after he and the Titans knocked off the teams with the No. 1 scoring defense (New England Patriots) and No. 1 scoring offense (Baltimore Ravens) in the same postseason.

The 2004 Patriots, led by Tom Brady, won the Super Bowl. The 1988 San Francisco 49ers, led by Joe Montana, also won the Super Bowl. Will Ryan Tannhill be next?

It’s somewhat ironic that the Titans have hardly had to rely on Tannehill at all in the playoffs so far. He’s attempted just 29 passes in their two games so far, completing 15 passes for a grand total of 160 yards through the air. Though, when he’s needed to make a play, Tannehill has come through with three touchdowns and just one interception in these two games.

Chances are, if the Titans are going knock off the Chiefs this Sunday at Arrowhead, Tannehill will need to step up his game and throw more.
