Are we going to see another big game from Corey Davis?
The Tennessee Titans are going into Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts with legitimate expectations to win against a banged up rival.
I think there are two reasons why Titans fans could see a big game from Corey Davis this weekend, and I want to start with the third year player himself.
First of all, I think that we are due for a game where Davis gets his after doing the dirty work for so much of the season. Last week if you watch the A.J. Brown long catch and run for a TD, you may notice a defender being bounced out of the club 40 yards down the field. That would be because Davis was basically lead blocking for Brown and setting the rookie up for an explosive play.
Throughout the season you see Davis in the background of most big plays setting other people up for success. That is why it is so surprising that he hasn’t been given his before now.
In the past two years Davis has had 6 or more catches in 6 games and in nearly all of those he has gone over 100 yards or had a touchdown, twice he did both.
Don’t mistake his blue collar mentality and his desire to set the team up for success and think that he is just an average guy. The problem is how tight end oriented this offense has been over his career.

The reason why this week seems like a perfect week for him to explode instead of last week is that for the most part Davis still seems to be drawing the better cover corner.
Forgetting the Miami Dolphins who really don’t have a WR2, going back to their lost against the Pittsburgh Steelers the Colts have allowed “WR2s” to tear them apart.
I don’t know how the Colts will grade the Titans WRs, but it certainly feels like this might be the week that teams start treating A.J. Brown as the WR1 which means that Ryan Tannehill would almost certainly feed Corey Davis in man situations.
Whether it is just time for Corey Davis to get his due or whether the gameplan and matchups dictate it, I feel like we are going to see a big week from Davis or Brown. If Brown gets the full attention of the defense it feels like it will be time for Davis to pop for 100+ yards and/or a TD.
