Titans' Ryan Tannehill, coordinator Todd Downing making progress toward synergy

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans' road to success starts with the relationship between quarterback Ryan Tannehill and new offensive coordinator Todd Downing.

Downing inherits an offense that scored 30.7 points per game in 2020 (fourth best) and averaged 396.4 yards (tied for second most) with Tannehill under center.

Tannehill experienced a career resurgence with Arthur Smith, Downing's predecessor, calling the plays. Tannehill's QBR jumped more than 24 points from 2018 to 2019 with Smith calling plays, while his touchdown-to-interception ratio went from 1.6 to 4.2. Additionally, Tannehill's yards per attempt increased from 7.
