Ryan Tannehill is the most disliked man in Tennessee right now. He waited until the biggest game of the year to have one of his worst games.
The Cincinnati Bengals are headed to the AFC Championship Game. Despite starting signal caller Joe Burrow getting sacked nine times, Cincinnati was able to take down the 1-seed Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Saturday.
Tannehill completed just 15 of 24 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. He hadn’t thrown three or more interceptions in a game since a Week 11 loss to the Houston Texans when he tossed an astounding four interceptions.
After the game, one Tannehill fan decided to remove his jersey and burn it.
While speaking with reporters after the loss, the veteran quarterback said:
“This hurts. Hurts bad. Didn’t think we’d be having this conversation right now. Not my vision for the game, at all. … It’s brutal. No one in the locker room thought we would be here right now.”
The Titans entered the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the AFC after finishing the regular season with a 12-5 record. The high expectations that they had ends after one game.
