Tennessee Titans vs Chicago Bears: Winners and Losers
Harold Landry III, LB
Harold Landry absolutely balled out Sunday, if you guys didn’t notice. It may be cliche to say that it even goes beyond the stat line, but it is consistently true for Landry.
His pass rush was on point Sunday, and while he only finished with one sack, he also moved Foles off of his launch point consistently and got an intentional grounding call when Foles spiked the ball instead of taking a sack.
Landry was able to attack gaps all across the line with stunts and slants, and the EDGEs finally showed up this week thanks in large part to his ability to dictate where the offensive line put their focus.
While it isn’t his strong suit, Landry wasn’t a liability in the run game at all on Sunday. David Montgomery finished with only 30 yards, and a big part of that can be attributed to Landry’s ability to set the edge and force Montgomery to cut back (usually directly into Jeffery Simmons or DaQuan Jones).
His four tackles were either met at the line or near it, stopping the run. Harold Landry also had a pass deflection that nearly led to an interception from Jeffery Simmons as well as two third down hurries early in the game that set the tone.
He did so much in the game and it didn’t go unnoticed. Landry did what needed to be done like he always does and it makes you realize that maybe Jadeveon Clowney isn’t the EDGE on the Titans doing the most.
