Tennessee Titans: 3 bold predictions vs. Buffalo Bills in Week 5
It’s time to get bold for the Tennessee Titans’ Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills.
The bold predictions for the Tennessee Titans in the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills have to do with something Tennesse’s defense will accomplish, another strong showing by Tennessee’s offensive line, and a big man you wouldn’t expect getting into the end zone.
In last week’s version, I boldly predicted the Titans wouldn’t allow a sack, and it actually happened!
The other two predictions? Not so much.
Let’s check out what I have in store this week for the Titans, and I’ve thrown in a fourth just for fun.
1. Titans defense gets a shutout
The Titans have allowed the fourth-fewest points per game this season, and the Bills offense isn’t exactly lighting anyone up (19 points per game), either. Tennessee’s defense is stout and will take advantage of multiple Bills turnovers, some which will come from the arm of Josh Allen.
Buffalo is second in the NFL in giveaways and first in the league in interceptions thrown. Repeated mistakes will have the Bills struggling throughout this game, and the Titans will pitch their first shutout of the 2019 season.
2. Titans allow zero sacks… AGAIN
We went with this prediction last week and it actually came true, although with a little help from Marcus Mariota after he avoided four sacks by throwing the ball away four times. While it’s always a risky bet to predict a zero sack game — especially two weeks in a row — this week it isn’t as crazy.
The Titans get Taylor Lewan back and Nate Davis already has a game under his belt in the NFL. This Titans line is finally at full strength and Mariota is beginning to do a better job of getting rid of the football before getting taken down. The Bills only have seven sacks through four games, also.
3. Jurrell Casey catches a TD
You read that right: defensive lineman Jurrell Casey is going to catch a touchdown pass in Week 5.
Hear me out.
During the week, Casey was seen running some routes and catching passes in practice. Head coach Mike Vrabel is going to draw up a play for the big man and we’re going to see him get into the end zone against the Bills.
Nothing better than seeing a big man do a touchdown dance!
Bonus: The Titans won’t almost burn the stadium down
Prior to the start of Tennessee’s home-opener in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts, things got off to an ominous start when a pyrotechnic machine caught fire and created a huge blaze that left a burnt patch of grass on the sideline.
That won’t happen again this time, and my chances of getting this one right are a lock considering all pyrotechnic machines have been temporarily banned by the NFL thanks to the Week 2 mishap.
Thanks a lot, Titans.
