Titans have an excellent defense. They also have a clutch defense. The most dangerous stat with the Titans is that they are number one in Redzone defense. They force field goals when teams get close.Titans run a 3-4 Defense that Vrabel excellent at in New England.
They like to mix up the rushers and come for all angles. Logan Ryan looks like he lost a step deep outside, but he understands position as well as anyone.
He knows where to be and how to get there. "Excited and focused. We know we’ve got a big challenge, a very tough test. Great football team coming here. It’s playoff football and everyone knows what’s at stake, so you certainly have to earn it to move
on," TB12 said. "You have to play good. A lot of plays come up over the years when I think about playoff football, and if you’re on the wrong end of one of them, it’s your season. If you’re on the right end, you move on. You don’t know which play is that going to be and you can’t take anything for granted. Guys are working hard and trying to do the right thing."
They do a great guy with the second guy in swiping at the ball to knock it out.
Titans have an excellent defense.
"They mix it up, they mix it up. They blitz secondary players and they blitz linebackers, and then they fake up there and don’t blitz anybody. They do a good
job," BB said. "Dean and Mike do a very good job of keeping the offense off balance with a variety of what they do defensively, so they’re not very predictable and they give you a lot of different looks, but it’s all things that they’re pretty familiar with and they play well. It’s not like a couple blitzes each week and it’s a bunch of new stuff every week.
That’s not really their main thing.
"They have a good plan and a good package and they have good variety in it, they mix them up, they keep you honest. If you’re looking for one thing over here, you could get something else over there and vice versa. They kind of make them look the same and make you figure it out after the snap. And if you guess wrong, then they, like you said, they’ve gotten a lot of sack production out of their DBs. They don’t bring them all the time, but they bring them enough that you’ve got to worry about it. If you’re watching the wrong one then somebody else will get you. They do a good job."
They also have a clutch defense.
AJ Brown is the guy
who had the most surprising season. "Obviously, you all know we practiced against them. They’re great
receivers," Gilmore said about Corey Davis and AJ Brown.
"They’re having a big year and Tannehill is having a big year, so it’s going to be a dogfight. Prepare as much as we can, and I’m looking forward to the matchup and giving it all I got for my
team." He is a phenomenal talent.
He had a phenomenal rookie season.
"Impressive. Look, there’s great receivers down there, the receivers and the tight ends. They had a real explosive group and he
was a big part of it," BB said about AJ Brown. "He was
impressive. He’s obviously done well. When we practiced against him, I think that was about the first time he was getting on the field, I don’t think he had done a lot before that, and then we saw him out there those couple days of practice and gradually, through the course of the year, it’s hard not to notice somebody who’s made so many explosive and big plays.
"He’s a tough guy to handle. He’s big and he’s fast, good with the ball in his hands, smart kid. They move him around. He does a lot of different things. He has an extensive route tree and it looks like obviously there’s a great chemistry between him and Tannehill. They’ve been very productive together."
He garnered 1,051 yards and 8 TDs on 52 catches.
is not a good plan to rely on a rookie to win in the Playoffs. Corey Davis is the guy that Gilmore will be on.
Their passing game relies on play action. Tannehill is not going to win
this game on his own. He has to have Henry running for over 100-yards. The
Pats Defense knows that.
The Pats have to stop the run.
"It's a big challenge," Gilmore said. "They can do everything. They can run the ball, they can throw it. So, any time you can do that and be balanced, you’re going to be a good offense. So, it’s going to take all 11 guys, and trusting each other and playing for each
other." They will kill you if you let them run, and then you can’t stop the passing game.
The Pats are built to stop the run. They have the big defenders to stop the run. The
Titans have a nice thunder and lightning blend of Henry and Dion Lewis.
If they stop the run the Pats win. If they don't it is going to get
tougher and tougher as the night goes on.
