Optimism: Bucs’ pass defense

After a stellar showing in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers’ top-five pass defense, quarterback Ryan Tannehill has given renewed hope in the Titans’ passing attack. As a result, there should be plenty of optimism in Week 8 against the Bucs.

Tampa Bay sports the worst pass defense in the NFL this season and is allowing 304.5 passing yards and nearly two passing touchdowns per game. If Tannehill even comes close to how well he played in Week 7, he should feast and the Titans offense should have no issue moving the football.

Of course, that will be dependent upon which version of the Titans offensive line shows up, but as we saw last week, Tannehill can alleviate that concern by getting rid of the ball quickly. I’d expect wide receivers Corey Davis and A.J. Brown to have a field day against what has been a putrid secondary for the Bucs.
