Titans Winners and Losers
In week eight of the odd 2020 NFL season, the Tennessee Titans lost their second straight game to The Cincinnati Bengals.
In a 31-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Tennessee Titans played the worst they have played all season.
The Titans were the road favorites going into this game but would end up losing to a team with one win on the season.
The Titans are now 5-2, and there is plenty of blame to go around for the recent struggles. The Titans defense will surely get the bulk of the blame from analysts and fans, but there were some offensive struggles as well.
However, despite the loss, there were still some good things to happen in this game. Every Titans fan should keep their head up, look at the positives from this game.
Running Back Group
King Henry played a great game and was one of the only bright spots for this offense. Derrick Henry finished the game with a subtle 112 rushing yards and a touchdown. However, the backups are who caught my eye in this game.
Jeremy McNichols and D’onta Foreman played great as well in this game. When their numbers were called, they delivered and made some big plays.
McNichols only got four carried on the game, but made every one of them count. The backup running back has shown all season, the things he can do with little game time. McNichols finished with 49 yards and averaged 12 yards a carry. His big 17-yard run helped the Titans late in the game get into scoring position.
Foreman had one more carry than McNichols but also proved his value with his limited playing time. Foreman finished with 37 yards and also had a big 15 yard run during the first half.
Much of the offense was stagnant during the game, but I think it’s safe to say these three did a great job all game.
