Von Miller predicts Tennessee Titans will win Super Bowl LIV
Denver Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller has made a bold prediction for the Tennessee Titans.
Denver Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller believes the Tennessee Titans will win Super Bowl LIV despite being the biggest long shot to do so at the moment.
Miller says he originally had the San Francisco 49ers as his pick to win the big game, but now is rolling with the Titans, according to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report.
"“If you had asked me all the way toward the beginning of the season, I would have said the 49ers,” Miller explained. “But now I think the Titans.”"
Miller says his pick of the Titans is all about momentum.
"“It’s about momentum,” he said. “I’ve lived through that. When a team gets hot, they are hard to stop, even if the team they’re playing is better.”"
And we’ve seen that first hand with Tennessee.
The Titans built their playoff momentum before even reaching the actual postseason with a 7-3 stretch after Ryan Tannehill took over in Week 7 following a 2-4 start.
Each and every one of those games was almost at the level of a playoff contest because of their must-win nature, and the Titans got the job done despite a tough schedule, grabbing the No. 6 seed in the AFC with a 9-7 record.
Once they got to the playoffs, the Titans kept rolling and disposed of the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, then took out this year’s Super Bowl favorite and No. 1 seed, the Baltimore Ravens, in dominant fashion.
In those two games, the Titans’ defense allowed a total of 25 points, and bear in mind one of those matchups was against the No. 1 scoring offense. Tennessee is also riding the hottest player right now in running back Derrick Henry, who has been nothing short of unstoppable.
The Titans are rolling into the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs with arguably more momentum than any team remaining in the playoffs, and that, as Miller says, might be enough to take them all the way to the promised land.
