The Tennessee Titans have hit their stride over the last two games, and now they’ve been named to have the best running back-receiver duo in the NFL.
Ever since the Tennessee Titans took off last season after Ryan Tannehill replaced Marcus Mariota, it was clear there is something special with the offense. Especially with Derrick Henry, A.J. Brown, and Tannehill. When they’re on, the trio can be the best the league has to offer.
The trio has not gone unnoticed as we’re now in the final month of the regular season. It’s make or break for the Titans, and if things go like they did the past two weeks, the Titans won’t be breaking. It seems the Titans’ offense has picked up where it left off last season.
Henry is looking to defend his rushing title and currently leads the league in rushing with 1,257 yards, Brown will be looking to finish the season with 1,000 receiving yards and currently has 638 yards to his name this season, and Tannehill has 2,608 passing yards and is 134 yards away from meeting his total from last season.
They’re now getting some recognition after two big back-to-back wins, not as a trio, but as a duo. Brown and Henry have been named the best wide receiver-running back duo in the NFL by NFL Network and Good Morning Football’s Nate Burleson.
Burleson has been a big fan of the Titans’ big three and the Titans’ potential as a team. He was a supporter last season when the Titans went on their run, and that’s no different this year as he’s backing the Titans again.
He explained the Titans’ offense perfectly when he said, “they’re close to unstoppable because when you try to stop one, the other is going to kill you.” The Titans offense has been the most successful when Tannehill, Henry, and Brown are at the top of their game because you can’t stop all of them.
Henry and Brown are great athletes that force defenses to decide between covering the outside or stacking the box. When you’re forcing defenses to guess like that, they’re bound to be wrong a few times throughout the game, and we’ve seen the Titans capitalize on those opportunities over the past two weeks.
The Titans will look to continue the momentum this Sunday when the Browns and Titans kick off at noon at Nissan Stadium.
