1. Tennessee Titans
Probably the most regarding factor in regards to the Titans’ blowout loss to the Payments on Monday was the protection’s continued incapability to cease the run. Tennessee has allowed the second most yards (339) within the league, ceding six yards per carry, additionally the second-worst mark within the NFL. I perceive that the Payments are superb, and the Giants are 2-0. That stated, the G-Males go as Saquon Barkley goes, and both Mike Vrabel didn’t promote out to cease him, or was frightened about getting beat deep by Jones’ plethora of follow squad receivers.
Throw in a substandard Ryan Tannehill and an underperforming Derrick Henry, and the one music enjoying on Broadway Avenue is shitty, twangy, unhappy nation songs. (Effectively, that, and the omnipresent “Take Me Residence, Nation Roads.”)
The departure of A.J. Brown left a gap that rookie receiver Treylon Burks is attempting to fill. He leads the workforce in receiving yards (102), which is nice for 48th amongst all cross catchers. The operating recreation is meant to open up the offense although, and Henry must get going for that to occur. Tannehill looks like he nonetheless hasn’t moved previous final yr’s one-and-done playoff look as a No. 1 seed, and, frankly, neither do the remainder of the Titans. With 4 of the subsequent 5 contests towards the Commanders, Colts, and Texans, they may certainly snap out of the malaise. Urgency is a should as a result of the second half of the schedule just isn’t as forgiving.
