Tennessee Titans defense forces four turnovers

Yep, you read that correctly. Take a Bears team that has elected to walk into the 2021 regular season with Andy Dalton as its starter. Add a pinch of rookie sensation Justin Fields and a forgotten Nick Foles. Throw in a dash of a Tennessee Titans team that will be rolling out some hungry defensive prospects that are trying to prove that they belong on this team, and what do you have?

You have an interesting mixture of aggressive defensive play and an opposing offense that may press a little. That smells like a recipe for sacks and turnovers. Tennessee will have an opportunity to get quite a few of both.

This isn’t your typical collection of guys who are just hanging out and waiting to be released. Tennessee Titans General manager Jon Robinson has stocked this team quite well, so well that, when the dust clears and the smoke settles, guys are going to fall victim to the numbers game.

The Titans may not have room for them, but they seemingly haven’t gotten the memo that this will be their last game in Tennessee’s uniform, at least for now.

Many of the Titans’ reserves have already proven that they deserve to play in the NFL somewhere. Expect them to play like it tonight, especially on defense. Four turnovers and a few more sacks sound like reasonable expectations.
