Titans need their rhythm back
The past 3 games for the Titans has been much of a mess to say the least. Having to lose teams like the Bengals, Eagles, and Jaguars , the Titans must find a way to get back on the right track. The Titans had the chance to get one step closer to their third consecutive divisional title, but the Jaguars had other plans and defeated the Titans 36-22.
Running back Derrick Henry rushed for 121 yards and one touchdown on 17 attempts, and he added 34 yards on three receptions. It was his sixth 100-yard rushing game of the season, which is tied for the most in the NFL with Cleveland’s Nick Chubb and Las Vegas’ Josh Jacobs.
The Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers hosted the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football last week. Against Miami’s fourth-ranked total offense and second-ranked passing offense, the Chargers allowed only 127 net passing yards and 219 total yards, leading to a 23-17 victory.
3 Key Topics
1. Eliminate Turnovers:
The Titans have struggled in every offensive category this season, save for 1 – turnovers. They had only turned the ball over 11 times this season. But against the Jaguars, they turned the ball over 4 times. You cannot win football games by turning the ball over like that, so that must be corrected.
2. LET KING HENRY RUMBLE
Derrick Henry ran for 96 yards in the 1st quarter, which was a positive sign for this offense. However, OC Todd Downing must continue to run the football to great effect. Derrick Henry cannot have 3 carries in the 2nd half…
3. Defensive Reinforcement
Trevor Lawrence was named AFC Player of the week last for his efforts against the titans, and it was largely due to the titans missing so many starters on defense. This football team needs their guys back like Denico Autry, Zach Cunningham, David Long, and Kristian Fulton to name a few.
