The Tennessee Titans are heading to the AFC Championship after knocking off the No. 1 seed Baltimore Ravens 28-12 Saturday night.

Their road to this point has been an improbable one.

They benched starting quarterback Marcus Mariota after the team started the season 2-4.

Any sort of benefit of the doubt or long leash he might have gotten finally withered away.

Enter Ryan Tannehill.

The Titans under Tannehill went 7-3 to end the season and earned a Wild Card berth.

Many people would like to attribute the Titans success to the benching of Marcus Mariota.
