A big game from quarterback Ryan Tannehill gave the Titans a hard-fought win over the Jaguars and a 2-0 start to the season.

Tannehill completed 18 of 24 passes for 239 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions, and Stephen Gostkowski hit a 49-yard field goal in the final minute, as the Titans won 33-30.

For the Jaguars, quarterback Gardner Minshew turned in his second consecutive strong effort, and undrafted rookie running back James Robinson also showed promise. Contrary to popular belief, there’s no tanking going on in Jacksonville. But today they felt short.

The Titans have now come up big in the final minute two weeks in a row and are in first place in the AFC South. They’re the clear favorites to win the division, thanks primarily to the way Tannehill continues to deliver.

  1. Is this the same Tannehill that played in Miami? It’s amazing what having an offensive line with do for you and having a team that doesn’t suck.

    I’ve been as hard on the Jags as probably anybody. The Jags had no business being in that game but Minshew is a gamer. He sure looks like the real deal. Then you have Robinson. Oh my. That dude is a tough runner. I can see why they decided they didn’t want Fournette anymore. Then they have that Kid Rock lookalike in the secondary. They have a lot more talent than I thought they did. They still need to address that offensive line and some other holes but if they can do that (I wouldn’t hold my breath on that) they could get this turned around.

    I’m just so impressed with Tannehill, Minshew, and Robinson in this game.

  2. Where are all the Fins fans that were killing me two years ago when I said I wanted Miami to keep Tannehill. I said with some real coaching and a line, he would be a good QB. One guy kept blaming Tannehill for EVERYTHING… Miami has made bad move after bad move the past year plus. (Tunsil, Stills, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Drake, McMillan etc etc) Fores is clueless, as today’s game proved.

  3. the PI flag that went against the Jags (Myles Jack) late in the game, setting up the go ahead FG was a horse crap call.

  4. Seriously, Tannehill throws for 239 yards and you are basically celebrating him like the 2nd coming? If the Jags had any pass rush in the first half, game result would have been much different. This game came down to Lambo missing the extra point. If he hadn’t, Jags would have been playing for a game winning field goal instead of Minshew trying to push for touchdown.

    Tennessee also missed an extra point making your argument null and void.

    Jags don’t kick extra points for the Titans, so they can only control what the Jags do. If Lambo had made his extra point, play calling on the final drive of the game would have been different.

  6. Doesnt matter, Minshew threw a low pass that was tipped and intercepted. He can play but the team is young, too bad he doesnt have the defense from 2017 …
