The Tennessee Titans can’t just focus on the Hawks’ stars?
Titan Sized: Who are the guys on offense and defense that Titans fans may not know but need to pay attention to in this one?
The Seahawks have several big-name players, of course, as everyone knows Wilson and D.K. Metcalf and Wagner. One name to mention here before I get into the other key players is Darrell Taylor. He’s been good out of the gate this season after missing last year with an injury and Titans fans might know him because he played at the University of Tennessee.
The one player on offense who could have a big game is tight end Will Dissly. He’s in his fourth season and was very good blocking and receiving his first two years but saw each year cut short with injury.
Last year, he played all 16 but the offense was more about throwing to the receivers. Under Shane Waldron (the new OC) Seattle uses its tight ends a lot more. Dissly has a 78 percent career catch rate when targeted and can run pretty well when he does catch it. Plus, he’s a beast of a blocker.
Defensively, second-year linebacker Jordyn Brooks is a tackling machine and doesn’t miss much when he has his hands on a runner. He’s a lot like Wagner in this way. It’ll be fun to watch Brooks and Derrick Henry matchup at times.
