It’s impossible to ask cornerback Logan Ryan to step up any more than he already has this season, but that’s exactly what the Titans need from their top corner with the Chiefs coming to town.
Ryan has been nothing short of sensational in 2019. He leads the league in passes defensed (12), is second on the team in tackles (61) and sacks (3.5), and has three picks. When targeted, Ryan has held opposing quarterbacks to a QB rating of 67.6.
The veteran slot corner’s No. 1 responsibility in Week 10 will be defending star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who has the ability to wreck a game all by himself. Hill’s blinding speed will be a true test for Ryan, and what he does against Hill could very well be the difference between a win and a loss.
Ryan can’t do it all on his own, though. He’s going to need help over the top, which is where safeties Kenny Vaccaro and Kevin Byard come in. However, if there’s any corner who can keep Hill in check, Ryan is the man for job.
