Breon Borders, CB
Borders has been playing really well all season as he has filled the role Tennessee needs in their secondary.
However, the 6’0″ cornerback got burnt a few times this past Sunday and gave up two touchdowns.
One of the touchdowns was on a fade route by wide receiver Peoples-Jones, where he hit Borders with a quick double-move and beat him down the sideline for a 75-yard touchdown. In his first four games, Borders did not give up a single touchdown and only allowed 16 receptions on 30 targets in those four games.
However, last week against Indianapolis Breon Borders gave up a touchdown late in the game when it was out of hand.
I said that he allowed two touchdowns, the other touchdown he gave up this Sunday was against Browns receiver Rashard Higgins and it seemed like Borders just wasn’t playing with his normal confidence.
Borders was targeted seven times and allowed five receptions for 142 yards total. He was not the sole reason the Titans lost, but he was a big one and for some people that were murmuring that Adoree Jackson might not have a job to come back to, it was a reminder that even promising cornerbacks are a week to week proposition in the NFL.
