Ryan Tannehill Note

Was 2019 a fluke? Was the contract they gave him too much considering the small sample size? We'll find out this season, though Tannehill has a tough matchup on his hands to start the year. The Broncos defensive front is littered with talent, as Tannehill will have Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Jurrell Casey, and Shelby Harris coming after him. That's scary considering Tannehill was sacked every 10.8 dropbacks last year, which ranked as the third-most often in the league. He also lost his starting right tackle in Jack Conklin. He's going to be under pressure quite a bit in this game. If his line can buy him time, the Broncos cornerback unit is their weak spot. Sure, they acquired A.J. Bouye this offseason, but he's replaced a better Chris Harris Jr. But after Bouye, their top cornerback is likely Bryce Callahan, who didn't play at all last year and has been known as a slot cornerback. If the Broncos can't get pressure on Tannehill, he should carve them up, but in a game with a 41-point over/under, it's expected to be extremely low scoring. Consider him just a middling QB2 for this game. Update: Defensive end Von Miller has suffered a season-ending injury, which will surely make the Broncos defense a bit less threatening. It's still expected to be a low-volume game, so it doesn't change Tannehill's projection that much.
