There were too many studs to count on this Tennessee Titans team.
Tennessee got all-star performances from guys like Ryan Tannehill and the offensive line, and that’s especially good to see after news broke shortly before kickoff that the Titans would be without their star left tackle, Taylor Lewan.
Tannehill was sacked three times, but he didn’t make any mistakes and accounted for 374 yards. It was good to see him have a good game.
Derrick Henry, running back
Well, this one’s obvious! It’s rare that you see three touchdowns by anyone in a game, but the timing of Derrick Henry‘s three scoring runs made them even more special. Henry had to be special and will his team to victory in the second half of this one, and that’s exactly what he did.
Julio Jones, wide receiver
The NFL is truly a week-to-week league. Just days after the Mike Vrabel and Julio Jones drama, the future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee hauled in six catches for 128 yards, including a 51-yarder. He was also robbed of his first touchdown reception in a Titans jersey.
Kristian Fulton, cornerback
Kristian Fulton‘s value in this one may not show up on the stat sheet. People seem to believe that turnovers and pick-six interceptions are the only demonstrations of a cornerback’s value, but D.K. Metcalf, despite catching six passes, didn’t accomplish much. Thank Fulton for that.
Two games are in the books. Both were great showings by Fulton. One part of the Tennessee Titans’ secondary puzzle has been solved.
