    That's actually not true according to the stats around PA. You don't necessarily need to have a successful run game to execute play action. Denver was committed to stopping the run and not giving up the big plays deep.

    Art stopped with the PA even though we were having success with it. It wasn't like they stopped our play action plays and forced us to do something different. We just stopped running them.

    On another positive note, Jeremy McNichols didn't look terrible in pass protection. I was worried about that once I saw him in on our first 3rd down play.

    And talk about bad ass on the play he almost got decapitated. Great balance and neck strength

    We used to lack the mental toughness to win these type of games, from that standpoint, it was also a success.

    By the numbers:

    14-0 - The Titans' record when Derrick Henry runs for at least 100 yards. The NFL rushing leader of 2019 ran 31 times for 116 yards for a 3.7-yard average per carry.

    There you go feed the king!
    19-0 baby!

    Henry wasn’t good yesterday but he had a few big big runs late in the fourth when we needed him the most so props for that.

    Our secondary cannot let the Jags WRs just run free as much as Denver did last night...Like it or not they have a decent passing game. I am guessing Jags do like Denver and sell out on the run.
