Winners No.’s 4 and 5: Jonnu Smith & Anthony Firkser
Loser No. 3: Delanie Walker
I feel bad about putting Walker on the loser side, but with the success of tight ends Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser in his absence, it seems like every week Walker is becoming more and more expendable as the season progresses.
Firkser made an amazing diving touchdown grab to get the Titans their first touchdown of the day.
He also made a clutch catch on the game-winning drive immediately prior to the game-winning touchdown, finishing with three catches for 36 yards. Smith added on four catches for 30 yards, including a nine-yard grab that set up Firkser’s touchdown.
Walker, who has now missed the past three games due to a re-aggravation of the ankle injury he suffered last season (he was active against the Chargers but did not play much), could be on the outside looking in.
He is currently 35-years old, and if the ankle issue is going to continue to nag him all season, he may find his way onto the injured reserve list. The Titans will be fine as long as Smith and Firkser continue to produce.
