Ryan Tannehill claims Titans have the weapons on offense
The Tennessee Titans are set to play the New England Patriots for the wildcard round of the 2019 playoffs. Some may think that they don’t have a lot to go against the defending Super Bowl champs as a struggling Patriots team still has the ability to turn games around.
However, Ryan Tannehill believes that his team has what it takes to take them down and advance to the next round of the playoffs.
Tannehill believes that the performance his teammates put out against the Houston Texans in their final game of the season as a starting point for his team’s possible victory against the Patriots.
“We have weapons,” Tannehill said, via John Glennon of TheAthletic.com. “We have weapons. Obviously, Derrick is huge, and it kind of all starts up front with the O-line and with Derrick, and then on the outside we have guys that are dangerous with the ball in their hands. A.J. once again proves that once he gets the ball in his hands that he’s dangerous.”
Looking at how they’ve performed against the Texans, it’s easy to see why he believes in his team. Derrick Henry will be a huge part of their game as he finished with 211 yards against a decent Texans defense. A.J. Brown was also unstoppable on the receiving end, catching 144 of Tannehill’s 198 passing yards. Players such as Corey Davis, Rashard Davis, and MyCole Pruitt can also make an impact.
It will be interesting to see how they will perform against the Patriots as they have one of the best defenses in the league. However, they have a shot at winning this game as long as they play their own style of football.
