An enormous commerce that netted the Titans Julio Jones from the Atlanta Falcons locations nice expectations squarely on Tennessee to be one in all the most dynamic offenses in the league.
Jones performed in simply 9 video games for the Falcons final season, but he nonetheless managed to common over 15-yards per reception. Say what you need about the 32-year-old wideout, however a wholesome Jones will accomplish that a lot for this Titans offense.
Defensive coordinators will be compelled to make robust selections going through the Titans this yr. Load up the field to cease Henry in the backfield and open up passing lanes. Or fear about Jones and Brown on the outdoors and take your possibilities with Henry up the intestine. Either means, you hand over yards and factors to this high-powered, bodily offense.
This Titans offense ranked fourth in the league last season, averaging over 30 ppg. They were second in the AFC, behind only the Buffalo Bills.
There are only two teams that stand in Tennessee’s way in the AFC. Those Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs. And I think the Titans have the style and personnel to overtake both teams atop the AFC.
We won’t have to wait too long either to watch the Titans and the Bills and Chiefs go head-to-head. The Titans play the Bills in Week 6, then turn around and play the Chiefs in Week 7. Both are home games for the Titans.
I will call it now and say the Titans win both games. This Titans team is stacked and well equipped on offense and only needs to rank in the middle of the pack defensively to have a nice long run in the playoffs.
Tennessee is only two year removed from an AFC Championship Game appearance. A game they lost to the Chiefs 35-24. With Jones now on the team, the Titans should compete with the most potent offenses around the NFL.
And don’t sleep on Tannehill. Sure, he is probably not Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, or Aaron Rodgers. But Tannehill did throw for a career-high 33 touchdowns and solely 7 interceptions final season. Expect Tannehill to match or surpass final yr’s TD whole. With this beastly offense he’s main, I count on nothing much less.
Look out for the Titans this yr, and after they take over the AFC, keep in mind the place you heard it first.
