Quarterback

Gardner Minshew: Completing 58.5% of his passes for 6.1 yards per pass attempt with no touchdowns and an interception on Sunday against the Buccaneers, Minshew has been a QB1 scorer in just one game this season.

Minshew is now completing 63.0% of his passes (25th) for 6.6 Y/A (25th) with eight touchdowns to seven interceptions on the season.

He has not had double-digit passing points in any of his past three games.

Minshew is a QB2, but if you do have to use him in those formats, he was effective against Tennessee in relief back in Week 5 after Anthony Richardson left that game due to injury.

In that game, Minshew was 11-of-14 for 155 yards (11.1 Y/A).

The Titans are 25th in points allowed per pass attempt (0.434) but have saved themselves by facing 31.6 attempts per game, the seventh-fewest in the league.
