Ryan Tannehill devastated after Titans’ loss: ‘it hurts’
The Tennessee Titans’ season came to an end on Sunday with a 35-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
The Titans entered the postseason as the six seed in the AFC but became a story of the playoffs after beating the Patriots and Ravens on the road in consecutive weeks. Despite getting out to a 17-7 lead, they were unable to make it three in a row and fell at Arrowhead Stadium.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who took over the starting job in Week 7, was described as “devastated” in the locker room after the game.
Tannehill is at his locker, quiet and devastated. Put aside your opinions of him as a QB. Just as a human, less than a year after being fired, imagine how much he wished he could return to Miami to play in the Super Bowl. And he was so unexpectedly close to it. Man, what a year.

During his postgame press conference, Tannehill repeated that the loss hurt.

Tannehill had success in his first year with the Titans after signing with them in free agency. He will be a free agent, and the Titans reportedly have interest in signing him to a long-term deal. The 31-year-old threw for 22 touchdowns and six interceptions in the regular season.
