  • The Titans They are 5-0 and are averaging 30.6 points per game against opponents who reached the postseason in 2020.

  • Derrick Henry will miss his first game with a foot injury. He’s responsible for 79.3 percent of his team’s rushing yards this season (second-highest percentage for a player behind Najee Harris).

  • If the Rams win, they will match their best start (8-1) in nine weeks into a season since 1970. That 8-1 mark to start a season has already been reached three times, most recently in 2018.

These are the reasons why you can’t miss the game between Tennessee and Los Angeles:

Without Henry present indefinitely, the Titans they will have to rely on Tannehill’s arm for the next few weeks and I’m not sure I can fire up the passing attack without defenses focusing on engaging players to stop the potent running back.

AJ Brown and Julio Jones have not been the explosive pair that was expected and now Tannehill is forced to make that partnership work over time against one of the most fearsome defenses in the NFL, who recently added pass rusher Von Miller to join. starring Aaron Donald, so it won’t be a quiet day for the quarterback.

The pressure is on Titans for showing that they can stay the course, while Rams they must find a way to quickly capitalize on Henry’s absence to take control of the party. – Erick Cervantes Roon
