I couldn’t feel less confident about a Tennessee win than I do right now.
The offensive line is melting on the inside despite the underrated play of the tackles and Ben Jones. With so much of the offense relying on Nate Davis and Rodger Saffold to be able to beat defensive tackles in one-on-one situations, I am nervous of the pressure Ryan Tannehill will see this weekend.
Speaking of Tannehill, last week we saw Ryan Tannehill play less than a half and get sacked 4 times and throw an interception on the road to a 0-point game.
That doesn’t inspire any confidence and anyone who tells you that we have seen Tannehill do something worth getting excited about other than against backups in the preseason, I just don’t see it.
Defensively Dean Pees has the group playing with great pride and deservedly so. They are one of the best coached units in the league from top to bottom, and with the addition of Jeffery Simmons things are going to get even more interesting when the defense takes the field.
Ultimately I think this will be a low scoring game, but the Titans actually have to score SOME points to win. I think the offense takes advantage of a turnover or two and either A.J. Brown, Adam Humphries, Derrick Henry, or Corey Davis end up in the endzone but only once
Prediction: Chargers beat Titans, 24-10.
Prediction summary: 5-2 Chargers majority.
