Winner: MMCNB crew
The stats may say something else because of the yards that the Titans basically let the Falcons have at the end of the game, but the MMCNB crew made their money on Sunday.
Malcolm Butler drew coverage with Julio Jones a lot, and he was absolutely living in his head. Meanwhile, guys like Adoree Jackson and Logan Ryan had really good days despite having one or two off plays.
Kevin Byard and Kenny Vaccaro were around the ball a lot as well and even though they weren’t intercepting passes or anything like that, they consistently made it difficult for the Falcons offense to get any clear looks at the receivers.
Basically the Titans defense forced the Falcons to be perfect in their passes and even when they were the backs closed on the ball carrier and made him feel it.
Despite the lack of 5+ man rushes, I enjoyed watching the coverage sacks and seeing Matt Ryan flustered after 2 seconds of blanket coverage. Outstanding job by this group against maybe the best WRs in the NFL?
