    Skyline you may disagree but Josh Jacobs to me is not a great back, but he was running it right down Bengals throat but holding calls over and over are what stopped that not Bengal D.

    I think you all are top ten in run D but bottom 5 in rushing attempts against. Which is a tribute to your passing game and ability to score.

    Game I think titans are watching is Bengals Chargers. That was bad! Turnovers protecting qb and running football are the main keys to me. Good news for us is the crew that officiated your game is done for post season!

    Yep, Jacobs was going against our depleted d-line, hence my concern. We had 4 d-linemen out (3 DTs) and the guys were completely gassed. Hoping to get Tupou (big-bodied run stuffer) back this week to help a bit, but if it's a close game then I expect Henry to be able to wear them down in typical Henry style.

    So yes, our offense getting off to a fast start is obviously key to help blunt your rushing attack, even though I'm aware the Titans aren't going to abandon it if they get down early.

    Our hope is in Burrow. The guy is playing at an elite level right now and only gets better as the lights get brighter.

    My only fear is our defense has been known to get torched for big plays and they seem to do that in bunches. If they can keep everything in front of them, not give up the big play and make them dink and dunk their way down field. Make them earn every blade of grass, we’ll be good.

    We have a solid third down defense now so we should be able to get off the field as long as we aren’t getting torched. Then let King Henry and Foreman beat their defense to death and open up the play action to AJ and Julio. Eat clock, keep Burrow on the sidelines. When he is on the field we have to harass and hit him with constant pressure.

    Exactly what we did to the Chiefs, Rams and Miami this year. If we play our game, we should handle this one no problem. If we get sloppy, turn over the ball and let Burrow sling at will, it could be long ugly night.

    That does it.

    Fat Randy about to close this game out with a GW, or just another FG for icing.

    Titans by 24.
