Aaron Rodgers versus the Bears, Chipper Jones against the Mets, and Ryan Tannehill going up against the Raiders. All three examples consist of players who consistently obliterate their respective opposition.

Tannehill’s history when playing the Raiders is shockingly dominant. The Titans quarterback now boasts a 5-0 record against the silver and black.

Though Tannehill has certainly played better games, he led Tennessee’s offense to a 24-point output in the first half of the Week 3 contest, which was (barely) enough to secure the win.

Tannehill completed 19-of-27 (70.4%) for 264 yards with one touchdown and one ugly interception. His 98.4 rating in the victory drops his average rating versus the Raiders to a ho-hum 119.3.

Behind a makeshift offensive line, Tannehill managed to keep the Titans in front for 52:32 of the allotted 60 minutes of play. It wasn’t a masterpiece, but it was good enough.

Like the late Bum Phillips once said, “It ain’t pretty, but it’s beautiful.”

The Titans should have no issue with winning ugly. After all, an ugly win sure beats the hell out of a pretty loss.

While it’s unlikely the Titans will meet the Raiders in the postseason – since 1979 only six teams have made the playoffs after starting 0-3 – I’m sure Tannehill wouldn’t mind adding to his resumé, and flushing his playoff narrative down the drain in the process.
