Ryan Fitzpatrick thoroughly outplayed Tom Brady on Sunday. It was ugly.
Well, could Brady be looking at a similar fate this weekend against another perennially mocked quarterback?
Brady and the Patriots are set to face Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans in an AFC wild-card matchup. And, according to former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah, Tannehill should get the better of his legendary counterpart.
Check out this tweet from NFL Media’s Mike Giardi:
"I expect it." @MoveTheSticks when asked by @RhettNFL if he expects Ryan Tannehill to outplay Tom Brady Saturday, Mentioned that Tannehill has a better supporting case, from offensive line to weapons and, obviously, the game's leading rusher, Derrick Henry.

Jeremiah might be right. Tannehill has played better than Brady over the last two months, and the Titans absolutely have a better offense than the Patriots.
That said, choose Ryan Tannehill over Tom Brady at your own peril.
