The Tennessee Titans dominated in its win over division-rival Jacksonville Jaguars, and Titans players are rewarded for their dominance.
The Tennessee Titans offense was dominant in its 31-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Titans’ Big 3 were the center of every offensive highlight from Sunday, and now, Pro Football Focus is rewarding them by naming them to Week 14’s Team of the Week.
The three Titans that made the Team of the Week are Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and A.J. Brown. Three players that Titans fans have become very familiar with over the past two seasons, and they’re no doubt the reason Tennessee’s offense has turned the corner.
Pro Football Focus also named Henry the Offensive Player of the Week, and after running for over 200 yards and two touchdowns, while putting up a grade of 92.7, it’s hard to argue that Henry isn’t deserving of the honor.
For Tennessee Vols and Titans fans, Sundays with the Titans have made Saturdays with the Vols a bit more bearable.
PFF’s Anthony Treash had some great things to say about Henry after his dominant performance. If we’re being completely honest, I don’t know if there are many people that can say a bad thing about Henry after his history-making performance.
"“Henry’s 92.7 PFF grade against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14 was the highest single-game mark we have given to a running back through 14 weeks of the 2020 NFL season,” Treash wrote.“Before this week, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner had never recorded more than two 20-plus-yard runs in a single game — he ripped off four on Sunday against Jacksonville, something only four other running backs have done in a single game over the last five years.“What’s interesting is that Tennessee — an outside-zone-heavy team — ran more man concepts than they have all year, and that’s where Henry really earned his cheddar. He was tasked with eight such carries and picked up 125 yards and a touchdown on those rush attempts.“Henry (90.8) has now leapfrogged Dalvin Cook (86.8) as the NFL’s highest-graded ball carrier, and Tennessee now has the league’s most efficient RB backfield in the NFL.”"
There’s no doubt that when Henry is at his best, the rest of the offense can follow suit. He dominated on Sunday, and with that, the rest of the offense was able to flow perfectly behind Henry’s lead. If the Titans want to return to the AFC Championship and even secure their spot in the Super Bowl.
Henry’s dominance shouldn’t overshadow Tannehill and Brown’s performance too much, though. Tannehill had a really good day, too. He threw for 212 yards and two touchdowns, while Brown caught seven passes for 112 yards and a touchdown.
If this week’s offensive performance is a sneak peek into what the Titans offense will do at the end of the season, then I’d recommend buckling up because we could be in for another wild ride.
