The Tennessee Titans advanced to 7-3 on Thursday night, defeating the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, 27-17. Derrick Henry had another impressive performance with 87 rushing yards and a touchdown, two catches for 45 yards and two completions for four yards and another touchdown, but Ryan Tannehill could have been the story of the night.

The veteran signal caller completed 22 of 27 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. His 333 passing yards were a season high, as was his 81.48 completion percentage. Meanwhile, his two touchdown passes tied a season high. It really was his best outing of 2022, but the advanced stats surrounding Tannehill’s night will surprise you.

According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Tannehill completed +20.0% of his passes than expected on Thursday night, the highest CPOE in a game in the last three seasons (min. 25 attempts). Tannehill also earned a 97 NGS passing score for his performance, the highest awarded to any quarterback this season.

Additionally, Tannehill averaged 12.3 yards per attempt against the Packers, who rank second among visiting quarterbacks in Lambeau Field history (min. 20 attempts). Believe it or not, Aaron Rodgers has hit that 12.3 mark only once in 117 career starts at Lambeau Field. Randall Cunningham is the leader, having recorded 13.8 yards per pass attempt in 1998.

The Titans have won six straight when Tannehill started, and the former Dolphin is now tied for the third-most QB wins (36) since Week 7 of the 2019 season, when Tannehill took over as the Titans’ starter. Only Patrick Mahomes and Rodgers have more wins in that span.

Henry is the engine that runs Tennessee’s offense, but Tannehill and his wide receivers have been playing very well the past two weeks.
