2. Derick Roberson will get 2 sacks
One of the biggest keys to victory for the Titans in this game is the same for any team facing the
Patriots: get consistent pressure on Tom Brady, make him uncomfortable, and good things will happen.
This particular goal will be difficult for the Titans to achieve because Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will certainly make sure that Tennessee’s best pass-pusher, outside linebacker Harold Landry, doesn’t beat him by giving the Boston College product extra attention.
If that happens, someone else will have to step up.
In the last two games, the guy to step up has been Derick Roberson. The UDFA out of Sam Houston State has totaled three sacks in his last two games, and has done so in 29 combined snaps.
The Pats’ offensive line, which has dealt with injuries this season, is exploitable, and Roberson is going to make himself known to the national media in this game when he notches a pair of sacks on Brady, as well as a few more QB pressures.
