Titans: Brett Kern finishes 1st in Pro Bowl voting among AFC punters


It looks like Tennessee Titans punter Brett Kern will be going to the Pro Bowl in 2020.

One Tennessee Titans player is guaranteed to be going to the Pro Bowl in 2020, as punter Brett Kern finished first in voting among punters in the AFC.

Kern, who finished with 93,586 votes, is in the midst of yet another great season for the Titans. The punter’s 34 kicks landing inside the 20 leads the NFL, and his gross average punt yards of 47.5 per attempt are most in the AFC.

The 33-year-old has been selected to each of the last two Pro Bowls.

As far as other Titans go, they didn’t fare as well.

Running back Derrick Henry, cornerback Logan Ryan and safety Kevin Byard all finished sixth in voting in the AFC at their respective positions.

Henry, who totaled 86 yards in the Week 15 loss to the Houston Texans and has been playing hurt, is second in the NFL in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. He just got finished with a four-game span in which he totaled over 100 yards on the ground and a touchdown in each game.

Ryan might be in the midst of his best season as a pro. The 28-year-old leads the team in tackles and is tied for the team-lead in interceptions with four (tied for fourth in the NFL), while also having the second-most sacks on the team. His 17 passes defensed are tied for the second-most in the NFL.

Ryan could very well be the defensive MVP of the Titans in 2019.

Byard is also in the midst of another great season, once again proving his status as an elite safety. He’s tied for fourth in the NFL with four picks, which is tied for the most on the Titans. He’s also fifth in tackles on the team.

The official Pro Bowl teams will be announced on Tuesday night, and the Pro Bowl itself takes place on January 26th, 2020, at 2 p.m. CST. Hopefully no Titans play in the game, which would mean the team made a run in the playoffs.
