FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
ATTACK ON TITAN WEEK 11
BEAST DOME NATION.
It is a surprise that the Titans hold a better record than the Packers in Mid-November. The Packers have dominated the NFC as a division, and the NFC North for what feels like over a decade. This season is going terribly for Green Bay. A great comeback win against the Cowboys last Sunday rescued their season, and that momentum can be turned around right away at home, on Thursday Night Football.
The Titans on the road have one goal, and one goal only. Feed Derrick Henry. While Tannehill took control of the game last Sunday against the Broncos, this one is going to have to be old-school smash-mouth Football. Derrick Henry can run wild against Green Bay and that makes this game interesting. When Henry runs wild, it opens up the play action pass so easily, and this Packers secondary is not as good as once advertised. Tannehill should find open players crossing over the middle, Henry will pound those yards, Titans will move the ball.
The Packers offense has been so run heavy this season. How heavy has it been? It’s been so heavy, that even women would not give their fake support of how heavy it is. There is a joke somewhere in there if you can figure it out.
The Packers will run run run, and the Titans can actually stop the run. However Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon are special players and even if your defense, “Can Stop The Run.” These guys can prove that theory to be false. The DL for the Titans has two pro Bowlers, but and talent around that, but if you can get past that second level, you can break into a third. Aaron Jones is always capable, he has improved his game this season from previous years. Jones was always just a lightning in a bottle with some size, but now he runs with power as well. I would say a cannon ball shot out of the cannon how he runs.
Then there is the X-Factor. Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers going up against a Titans secondary that is beatable. Romeo is still out, which means Watson becomes a player everyone will watch after his 100+ Yard/3 TD game. Sammy Watkins is starting to find his groove, Lazard is always going to be reliable. Rodgers has the weapons, the Packers have enough in the run and pass game to move the ball on the Titans.
In the end we will have a battle. Derrick Henry can control this game. The Packers could try to go too runy heavy when the run game is not working. Both Rodgers and Tannehill can do damage in the air. Because of all these options.
Derrick Henry can literally control this game by himself. 8 Minute Drives, TD. Packers run on 1st and 2nd down, throw incomplete on 3rd. If Packers sleep at the wheel, the Titans can drive right through them all game long.
