3 Areas where the Tennessee Titans should dominate the Minnesota Vikings
By Brady Akins
Corey Davis and Adam Humphries vs Vikings Cornerbacks
The Minnesota Vikings have been torched, and I really mean torched through the first two weeks of the season. And with one quick glance at the depth chart and injury report, it’s not hard to figure out why.

The Vikings’ two starting cornerbacks from Week 1, Mike Hughes and Holton Hill, are both super young players– each in their third season in the league. The depth behind them though, is even younger, with rookies Cameron Dantzler and Jeff Gladney both being rookies. Talented rookies, mind you, but inexperienced players all the same.
Those four cornerbacks have contributed heavily to a pass defense that has given up the fourth-most passing yards per game so far in the season, and things might be getting worse before they get better. Hughes, the Vikings’ top cornerback, will be out in Week 3 with a neck injury. Same for the rookie Dantzler, who will be sidelined against the Titans with a rib injury.
Even without AJ Brown, sidelined himself for Week 3 with an injury of his own, the Titans’ top pass-catchers might be due for a big game against a depleted Minnesota secondary. Both Corey Davis and Adam Humphries have stepped up big this season for Tennessee, and have each shown great chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill himself has stepped up in 2020 and has put together two impressive games so far. Against the Vikings, he has a chance to make it three in a row with the help of Davis and Humphries.
