5 big concerns for the Tennessee Titans playoff push
By Will Lomas
5. The regression of Corey Davis
This is a hard pill to swallow because it just doesn’t make much sense. For his entire career starting all the way back to his freshman year in college, all you had to do was give Corey Davis volume and he would make big plays for your offense.
Right now, the mistakes are as frequent as the big plays which can’t happen to a guy that you have invested so much in during a crucial stretch like this.
On Sunday, Davis made a great catch on 3rd and 13 to convert and also had a 22 yard catch to get the Titans inside the red zone on another drive. However, he also had a drop that looked like he should have been able to make a play on and throughout the game he just doesn’t seem to be able to be the clear WR2 that he should be.
All throughout camp we heard that Davis was going to be a star in 2019 and after a big year in 2018 it looked like we were finally going to get a breakout season.
Maybe some of this is so clear because of the volume and production that A.J. Brown has had this season, but there just seems to be something missing from his game.
Right now Davis is on pace for 600 yards and 3 TDs, which isn’t bad for a receiver it just is a step back from what it looked like he could become in 2018.
