2021 MVP odds: 28/1

One thing to know: The “game-manager” designation can feel like a backhanded compliment in the NFL, but Tannehill has proven that game managers can be game winners┬ásince joining the Titans in 2019.

Tannehill doesn’t make the flashy throws that others on this list can pull off, but he protects the football, finds his receivers with accuracy, and is one of the most underrated rushing quarterbacks in the league once the ball is in the red zone. Last year, Tannehill’s seven touchdowns on the ground trailed only Cam Newton, Kyler Murray, and Josh Allen.
