3 Players who stood out in the Titans week 3 win in Minnesota
The Tennessee Titans were involved in another nail-biter this weekend, but once again they found a way to pull it out.
This win proved that this Titans team is resilient, and you can never count them out of a game. It was ugly at times, and one was left to wonder if the Titans’ defense was ever going to find a way to stop the Viking offense.
However, the Vikings defense is not the same Viking defense of old, as they showed themselves to be porous as well. This Titans offense kept fighting back and did everything they could to make up for the mediocre defense that was played today.
Late in the 3rd quarter, Derrick Henry scored 2 rushing touchdowns in a matter of 2 minutes, giving the Titans a one-point lead heading into the 4th quarter. It was definitely a nice sight to see Derrick Henry at least partially regain his 2019 form, going for 119 yards and 2 TD’s. The Titans were unable to add more TD’s in the 4th, but they didn’t need to, as Gostkowski saved the day again with two huge field goals in the 4th.
The Titans defense, especially run defense, was not good today, as they allowed Dalvin Cook to set a new career-high in rushing yards. However, we’re going to stick to the positives today, because after all, a win is a win. The Titans are now 3-0 and firmly in first place in the AFC South and will prepare for the Steelers in Week 4.
Let’s discuss the 3-star players for the Titans in today’s hard-fought win.
