3 Tennessee Titans with a huge opportunity vs Minnesota Vikings

After a physical week of joint practices, the Tennessee Titans will face off against the Minnesota Vikings on the road tonight.

While the majority of the starters will be on the bench, there are several important players that will have a chance to leave a good impression on the coaching staff in this matchup.

Since the news has broken that Will Levis will miss today's game with an injury, there is an easy place to start this list and that is with second-year quarterback Malik Willis.

1. Malik Willis, QB

Willis has done a complete 180 since last season and he has done a great job putting himself in contention for a roster spot this fall. Unless something incredible happens, the Tennessee Titans already have their starting quarterback and their future replacement in place with Ryan Tannehill and Will Levis, but Willis is proving that he has something to offer.

Since he is going to get every snap at quarterback today, he has the chance to prove that he can be a calm and steady backup who can manage a game effectively from start to finish. That is something that he never got close to as a rookie, but he can change a lot of minds with a great game today.

Which other young Tennessee Titans have a chance to earn a role today

2. Jaelyn Duncan, LT

Duncan played remarkably well last week against the Chicago Bears, and anyone who watched the game can confirm that.

He has the frame and quickness to make life challenging for defenders, and he looked calm and comfortable for the majority of his snaps. If he can play with a little more physicality in the running game and if he can do a slightly better job picking up stunts by the defensive line, he could lock himself in as the Tennessee Titans backup left tackle.

3. Chance Campbell, LB

Aside from Azeez Al-Shaair, Campbell has been the Tennessee Titans' best linebacker throughout camp. Not only does he play with intensity, he seems to have a good nose for the ball and the athleticism to make plays.

While no one is going to confuse him with David Long Jr., he could easily earn a job as a role player if he continues to thrive in practices and in preseason games like this.
