Delanie Walker, Kevin Byard, and the Tennessee Titans have put the Week 1 win in the past and are ready to keep pushing toward their playoff goal.
The Tennessee Titans are coming off a big Week 1 win, but the veterans aren’t letting it distract them from their season-long goals.
As a player, especially the young ones, it is very easy to get caught up in big wins like the one versus the Cleveland Browns. The veterans, however, are going around making sure the team isn’t treating this one win like the Super Bowl.
“A lot of veterans in here that’s telling the guys, that wasn’t anything, that was only one week and our coaches do the same thing,” Walker said, per Jim Wyatt of Titans Online.
This shows how the Titans’ leaders are ready to keep working and focusing on the next week.
Safety Kevin Byard agreed with Walker.
The team has a tough matchup coming up this week versus a division rival, the Indianapolis Colts. Winning the game in Week 2 will be a great first step in chasing the division title and could leave the team sitting pretty with a 2-0 record.
The veterans and coaching staff are doing everything they can to keep everyone’s focus on the challenge at hand. This team wants to get a division title and make a strong playoff run. This doesn’t happen by just beating one team, and the Titans know this.
The Titans are set this year with a great coaching staff and an immensely talented roster. They know what it takes to win games and have the potential to be very successful this year. Continuing to work hard and staying focused on their season goal will be important in their path to success.
If Marcus Mariota and Co. can continue to play at the high level they showed last week, they will be a team to watch as this NFL season progresses.
