Tennessee Titans lessons from Week 14
After rewatching the Tennessee Titans vs the Jacksonville Jaguars, there are some important lessons that are being overlooked.
The most important thing for the Titans is that they won and they won convincingly despite the fact that they are still missing several key pieces. In fact, despite the bye week the Tennessee Titans only played three new starters: Rashaan Evans, Nate Davis, and Julio Jones.
Despite the fact that there are still several starters healing up, the difference on the field was clear. Offensively there seemed to be less pressure for every play to be perfect which meant Ryan Tannehill wasn’t forced to do things he was uncomfortable with, hence the 0 turnovers.
On defense, Mike Vrabel had hoped to see a group that had more energy and he got players flying around and making smart plays every single drive.
In an ideal world the Titans cash in on their long drives with touchdowns instead of one made field goal and one missed field goal and they go into halftime leading 21-0. However, a dropped pass here or a missed blocking assignment there means that the Tennessee Titans probably left 11-18 points off the board.
