Tennessee Titans: End of Week 10 Notes & Links


Bringing you the best bits of news or information about the Tennessee Titans that have circulated around the internet during Week 10.

The Tennessee Titans are currently on a three-game winning streak and host a dysfunctional Cincinnati Bengals team in Week 10. As Titans players have gotten healthier and stars are beginning to emerge, there is plenty of news on the Two-Tone Blue this week.

Let’s go through these in order.

The SkyCam, which was heavily used by necessity when fog overcame Gillette Stadium during the Falcons-Patriots game, is a bit of a polarizing subject. It seems like many fans love the new view, but many believe the cons outweigh the pros. Personally, I like it, but it has its flaws. First of all, it’s too zoomed in and makes it hard to see outside receivers. Secondly, it’s incredibly difficult to gauge depth and observe how many yards are gained on run plays. That said, it’s a refreshing new way to view the game, and Titans fans will have to deal with it, one way or another, next Thursday night.

Corey Davis returned last week from a very lengthy absence due to a hamstring injury. Davis played 39-of-52 offensive snaps and made a highlight grab near the sideline on a back-shoulder throw from QB Marcus Mariota. He drew the start and was targeted five times, signaling that he very well could end up the WR1 on this team going forward as he gets more snaps. Although I’m sure Rishard Matthews will have something to say about that.

It’s often heard from players as they get deeper in their careers that the game begins to slow down for them. That appears to be happening for Titans safety Kevin Byard, who has now picked off five passes in his last two games. Playing more of an in-the-box role during his rookie season, Byard was unable to record a single interception, but he was always in the right position. The takeaways are now coming in bunches for the ballhawk, and he’s turning into, arguably, the Titans’ most important defensive player.

If you’re a Titans fan, then you know all about Brett Kern and his ridiculous punting ability. But not many people outside of Tennessee realize how valuable he is to this team. Former-punter-turned-media-sensation Pat McAfee has been going around the league this season and pointing out the best punts and punters in the NFL. A man of his craft, McAfee singled out Kern this week, calling him one of the best not only in the league, but in history. He’s not wrong.
