Tannehill completed 18 of 27 passes for 197 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 25-16 win over the Colts. He also rushed five times for 56 yards. Tannehill alternated between touchdown passes and interceptions after the Titans punted on their opening drive. The signal-caller's first-half scores came from six yards to Chester Rogers and 18 yards to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, as Tannehill was forced to incorporate lesser-known options with star wideout A.J. Brown (hamstring) leaving early. In the second half, Tannehill used his legs on a season-long, 28-yard rush and found reserve tailback Jeremy McNichols for a 10-yard touchdown pass, helping clinch a second straight win. Although Brown's injury raises concern over Tannehill's stock, his next two matchups coming against the Jets and Jaguars should at least offer some relief.
Tannehill completed 27 of his 40 passes for 347 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Seahawks. Tannehill returned to his more efficient ways after a disappointing Week 1 effort, recording 8.7 yards per attempt. He spread the ball around, with four different receivers getting five targets or more. However, Tannehill showed particular rapport with Julio Jones, and the duo connected for five passes that went for 15 yards or more. Tannehill's production still lagged due to Derrick Henry finding the end zone three times in the second half to key a comeback win, though this performance was a step in the right direction.
Tannehill completed 21 of 35 passes for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Arizona on Sunday while running for 17 yards and one touchdown. It was a weak showing in what arguably was the best on-paper matchup on Tannehill's entire 2021 schedule. Arizona pass rusher Chandler Jones almost single-handedly defeated the Tennessee offense by sacking Tannehill five times, leaving the Titans unable to capitalize on Arizona's poor cornerback personnel. A.J. Brown (four catches for 49 yards and one touchdown on eight targets) and Julio Jones (three catches for 29 yards on six targets) both fell flat in the outing. The Seahawks pass rush should be more manageable for Tannehill in Week 2, but the Titans offense has some questions to answer as it heads on the road to Seattle.
Tannehill was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Tannehill missed 10 days after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list in late August. As a result, the veteran quarterback will be eligible to practice starting Monday and should be considered ready to go for the Week 1 contest against the Cardinals.
Tannehill is expected to be out for 5-to-10 days after the Titans placed him on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday morning, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. He's one of three Titans going on the list, joined by TE Geoff Swaim and LB Justin March. It should be just a minor annoyance for the team, as Tannehill was comfortable under former OC Arthur Smith and shouldn't have too difficult of an adjustment now that he's working with internal promotion Todd Downing (formerly the Titans TEs coach). Plus, Julio Jones (undisclosed) and A.J. Brown (knee) haven't been practicing much, so it's not like Tannehill is missing out on opportunities to throw to his favorite targets.
