3. The Offense is Struggling
If I told you that Derrick Henry was held scoreless and Ryan Tannehill only completed 10 passes, you would probably assume the Titans got absolutely blown out in Week 9.
Luckily, that was not the case, thanks to a stellar defensive performance. In 2020, the Titans have, surprisingly, been a team carried by offense. In 8 games, the Titans offense has scored less than 30 points, four times. They are 2-2 in those games. When the team scores more than 30 points? 4-0.
Fortunately, the Tennessee defense was able to pick up the slack for the offense against the Bears. While they only mustered 24 points, the Bears were held scoreless until the 4th quarter. It was an admirable performance, considering the Titans’ defense was not getting much help. Ryan Tannehill had a rare lackluster performance, only collecting 158 passing yards to go with his 10 completions.
Corey Davis shockingly was held without a catch, unable to connect with Tannehill on 3 targets. As I mentioned earlier, Henry was also held out of the end-zone. This was all around an uncharacteristically bad performance from a consistently decent Titan offense. Granted, the Bears defense is top-tier, but hopefully, this is not a trend.
