Summary: Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, OBJ, Jarvis Landry, and Rashard Higgins. Those five will absolutely dominate this Titans team. Baker needs to watch his passes deep against this safety duo but aside from that this defense is soft like Charmin.
Chubb will feast and OBJ, if fully healthy, will eat too. Landry should be open all day down low where he thrives. Higgins will contribute evenly with Landry. I would expect them to be close in stats throughout the season.
The Titans offense is not great. Expect sacks on sacks on sacks from this insane D-Line going against this well below average O-Line. Mariota is well below average for a QB. The Titans will be drafting a QB within the top 5 in the upcoming draft and Mariota will be considered a quality backup next year.
What are we thinking for the defensive line stat line tomorrow? 4 sacks, 8 total tackles for a loss, 1 pick, maybe 2, and they allow under 15 points. Now, as fans, do we think Baker will throw for over or under 250 yards? I’ll take the over but be optimistic on accuracy and efficiency. Week one, first time with all the starters on the field, might take the first half to get the offense firing on all cylinders.
Regardless of the stats, it should be a Browns win. GO BROWNS!
Prediction: Cleveland 38, Tennessee 12
