The Jacksonville Jaguars are not remotely close to the Tennesse Titans.
The Tennesse Titans have righted the ship after a not-so-hot start this season. They’re currently 6-2 and looked like one of the best teams in the AFC South. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7, they took care of business and beat the Colts in Week 8. You could argue that things were closer than they should but in the end, Tennessee did what good teams do, come out of a divisional matchup with a win.
Now, the Titans did suffer a significant blow in Week 8. They lost running back Derrick Henry, their best offensive player, for the season. They went on to sign Adrian Peterson, which would have been great news if this were 2012 and not 2021. The veteran and future Hall-of-Fame running back still may have some gas left in the tank but he’s not the player he was in his prime and won’t be enough to overcome Henry’s absence.
Moving forward, the Titans coaching staff will more put on quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s plate. He’s been a solid game manager that didn’t have to do much due to the presence of Henry. It will be interesting to see how the former first-round pick fares without Tennessee’s star running back.
