After being quiet through three games, linebacker Harold Landry finally brought some heat. The Boston College product finished with four tackles and two sacks, and had his best game of the season.
The Titans need more of this from their former second-round pick. If the Titans can get a consistent pass-rush to go along with their elite secondary, this team will be able to force a ton of turnovers en route to being a nightmare for opposing offenses to face.
The Titans’ leading tackler on Sunday, Evans was everywhere in Week 4. He finished with 10 tackles, and had half a sack and two QB hits. He also had a hand in limiting Falcons backs to just 39 yards on 14 carries.
Evans, along with fellow inside linebacker Jayon Brown, have been as advertised thus far and are a big part of why the Titans are playing solid run defense overall. In Week 3, PFF named the Titans’ linebacker corps. as a top performer in the NFL, and Evans and Brown were mainly the reason for that.
