QB Ryan Tannehill Focused on Getting Titans On Winning Track


NASHVILLE – What's done is done.

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill said the team is locked in on the Bills – and focused on getting on track in Week 2.

"You have to get yourself ready to go each and every week, no matter what happened the week before," Tannehill said on Thursday. "You come in, you put a great week of work in and then get yourself ready to go."

The Titans let a winnable game escape their grasp in Sunday's season opener against the Giants.

Next, the Titans travel to Buffalo for Monday night's showdown against the Bills, who are coming off a blowout win over the Los Angeles Rams.

On Thursday, Tannehill was peppered with questions about what didn't go right in the opener, and why certain players weren't targeted more, from tight end Austin Hooper to receiver Robert Woods.

Tannehill said there will be opportunities moving forward with every player.

In Sunday's opener, receiver Kyle Philips led the team with six catches for 66 yards while fellow rookie Treylon Burks had three catches for 55 yards.

"Every game is going to be a little different," Tannehill said. "Sometimes Robert is going to get more targets and sometimes it is going to be Treylon. Sometimes it is going to be Hoop, sometimes it is going to be Kyle. It is going to vary week to week. But we have a lot of confidence in our guys and know we are able to spread the ball around and find whoever is open."

Tannehill completed 20-of-33 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns with a 106.4 rating in the loss to the Giants. But the Titans squandered scoring opportunities, and the offense went just 3-of-11 on third down. Other drive never got going as the game began to take a dreadful turn. There were drops, and mistakes.

Meanwhile, the Bills were relentless on defense in their 31-10 win over the Rams, when they intercepted three passes while racking up seven sacks.

Tannehill knows the Titans need to put any swirling negative vibes behind them.

"At the end of the day, what matters is the guys in the locker room and the coaching staff who prepares us," Tannehill said. "No matter what is going on on the outside, what people are saying about us, it doesn't really matter, whether it is good or bad. We have to be able to believe in each other and have that synergy of believing in each other and doing our job together in order to go out there and play well."
