Tennessee Titans positional grades and biggest needs: Week 1
By Will Lomas
Defensive backs: B-
There was some good and some bad here. Malcolm Butler had a point stealing INT in the endzone only later to be beaten for a 75-yard TD.
Adoree Jackson allows an easy pitch and catch touchdown due to confusion only for Kenny Vaccaro to have an interception late in the game to give the ball back and a chance to tie it up.
It was ups and downs all day long and I can live with that. I have said for a while that touchdowns and big plays happen and if you can steal a possession or two per game that is fine.
The problem was that the offense wasn’t helping them out by converting those chances.
Ultimately with no help from the front seven, the Titans DBs did well and ended up with two turnovers. Be as mad as you want to about the completion percentage and the yards, but I will grade that positively 9 times out of 10.
