Tannehill replacing Mahomes on AFC Pro Bowl roster

Sports

After falling to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill will have one more opportunity to take the field this season.

Tannehill, a Big Spring and Texas A&M product, was added to the AFC’s roster for the Pro Bowl.

The game will air on Sunday at 2:00 on Big 2.

He is replacing Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The former Texas Tech QB will instead compete in Super Bowl LIV next weekend.

This is Tannehill’s first time being named a Pro Bowler over the course of his eight-year NFL career.

After taking over as the Titans starting quarterback, he led his team to a 7-3 record during the regular season. Tennessee then pulled off consecutive upsets over New England and Baltimore in the playoffs.

Statistically, Tannehill was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL this season. He led the league with a 117.5 passer rating; his 70.3 completion percentage (201-286) was also a career-high for Tannehill.

In 12 games (10 starts), the 31-year-old finished with 2,742 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions.
