Tennessee Titans players who should have better stats in Week 2
By Will Lomas
Harold Landry, EDGE
The statline for Harold Landry’s Week 1 reads: 3 solo tackles, 0 sacks, 0 QB hits
However, it should read: 4 solo tackles, 1 sack, 1 FF, 2 QB hits, 2 holding calls against
The reason that it doesn’t is because the NFL has made an error in their stat keeping with the forced fumble. While there was a fumble on Cameron Wake‘s first sack, it wasn’t credited to either EDGE. That means that when the ball was knocked out and put at the 1-yard line, no one was credited with the play.
Still, when you go back and look you can clearly see that it was Landry who punched the ball out on the forced fumble that never existed.
He also had sack taken away because of a phantom DPI call that was clearly given to Odell Beckham because of the name on his jersey not because of the play on the field.
Going against Braden Smith and Anthony Castanzo is a little easier with Andrew Luck gone. The slower release of Jacoby Brissett makes it easier to get pressure against these two and it led to a combined 4 pressures, 3 hurries and a sack by the OTs.
With Wake on one side and Landry on the other, someone is going to have to get special attention from the TEs and I would imagine that the priority is going to be Wake after his dominant performance against the Browns.
