Custom Corey Davis Jersey Large

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis is reportedly being evaluated for a concussion following Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints, per Jim Wyatt of Titans Online.

Davis caught three passes for 40 yards in the 38-28 loss, adding to the 36 receptions for 517 yards and two touchdowns he had entering play.

The 6’3″, 209-pound wideout, who the Titans drafted fifth overall in 2017 out of Western Michigan, has overcome injuries throughout his three-year NFL career.

He missed nearly the entire 2017 training camp and preseason after suffering a hamstring injury that persisted throughout his rookie year. Davis returned for Week 1, but the injury returned and forced the wide receiver out for five games between Weeks 3 and 7. He finished with 34 receptions and 375 yards.

Davis found himself on the Titans’ injury reports a few times during the 2018 season with hamstring injuries, but they did not prevent him from playing a full 16-game campaign. Davis snagged a team-leading 65 passes for 891 yards and four touchdown receptions last year.

Losing Davis would a huge blow for the Titans’ wide receiver crew, but Tennessee may be able to forge ahead without him by relying on the rushing attack. That is especially the case if Derrick Henry returns after missing Sunday’s loss.

As far as the pass-catchers, A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe figure to see more targets. Tight end Jonnu Smith will also be a factor.

Custom Ben Jones Jersey Large

NASHVILLE – Ben Jones founded The Jones Mission two years ago to raise money for organizations that serve at-risk youth.

This year the foundation distributed $85,000 raised via through the Ben Jones Celebrity Clay Shoot to a pair of local charities. It also funded holiday shopping events for families in need locally and in Jones’ hometown of Centreville, Ala.

Because of his efforts in the community, Jones was named the Tennessee Titans’ Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. The team announced the award Thursday.

In recognition of the honor, the starting center will wear a special helmet decal through the remainder of the season and will be a candidate for the 2019 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award along with one player from each of the league’s other 31 teams.

All 32 nominees receive a $50,000 donation in their name, via the NFL Foundation, to the charity of their choice. The NFL Man of the Year will receive an additional $250,000 donation. The winner will be announced Feb. 1 during the NFL Honors awards show.

Each Team has named a Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year annually since 1996. Jones is the first Titans offensive lineman to earn the distinction.

“It’s an honor to be nominated as the Titans’ Water Payton Man of the Year,” Jones said in a release from the team. “It’s incredibly important to me to help kids in need and to show them that anything is possible through hard work, determination and prayer. I have been fortunate that my foundation has been able to impact the lives of kids in Nashville and Alabama.”

This year The Jones Mission gave $45,000 to Preston Taylor Ministries, which addresses issues common to a Nashville public housing area, to help open a facility for after-school programs. Another $40,000 went to Endure Athletics, a Murfreesboro-based organization that provides fitness, education and mentorship opportunities to homeless children.

Jones also hosts senior football players from his high school, Bibb County (Ala.) High School, at a Titans game each season, stages an annual summer camp in his hometown and sponsors the annual holiday shopping trips for families in need.

Jones entered the NFL in 2012 as a fourth-round pick of the Houston Texans, the Titans’ opponent this Sunday at Nissan Stadium. After four seasons with Houston, he signed as a free agent with Tennessee in 2016 and has been the team’s starting center since.

He was named a team captain this season.

Custom DaQuan Jones Jersey Large

It was not the absolute best of the Tennessee Titans.

In a way, though, Saturday’s 20-13 victory over the New England Patriots in a wild-card matchup at Gillette Stadium was the best representation of what these Titans are as a whole.

A team that relied too much on its defense early in the regular season and then rode a high-scoring offense into the playoffs late in the year got quality contributions from every aspect of the roster as it earned a spot in the divisional round. They were outgained but not outgunned. They gave up some plays but not a lot of points. And they made the most of the moments that mattered most.

As a result, Tennessee will play at Baltimore next Saturday with a spot in the conference championship on the line. The victory ended the championship reign of the Patriots, who won Super Bowl LIII last season and had gotten at least as far as the AFC Championship game each of the last eight years.

“We didn’t hand them anything,” coach Mike Vrabel said. “That was the one thing … they feast on bad football. We didn’t hand them anything and I don’t think our guys spent too much time staring up at those banners.”

There was some good from the offense. In particular, there was Derrick Henry and the line. The NFL’s leading rusher maintained his momentum from the regular season and rolled to a franchise playoff record 182 rushing yards on 34 attempts, which was more than enough to offset a surprisingly pedestrian performance in the passing game.

There was some good from the defense. In particular, there was a second-quarter goal-line stand that forced the Patriots to settle for their second field goal of the opening half. It was the second time in three red-zone possessions that quarterback Tom Brady and New England’s offense failed to score a touchdown, and that ability to dig in close to the goal line offset the fact that the Patriots produced 10 plays of more than 10 yards on their first four possessions.

“This team believes in each other,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. “We believed in each other all year, and it’s come through trial. We’ve been in situations like this – tough games, tight games – and found a way to make a play and win. … We were able to do that (Saturday) night.”

The goal-line sequence, three attempts to run it in from the 2-yard line or closer (linebacker Rashaan Evans made two tackles and defensive lineman DaQuan Jones made one), was the turning point.

Up until then – with 2:16 to play in the first half – the Patriots had scored on three of their first four offensive possessions, compiled 199 total yards and led 13-7. After that, seven possessions netted just 108 total yards and only one crossed midfield (New England got as far as the Tennessee 47). The Patriots’ final play on offense was an interception that cornerback Logan Ryan returned nine yards for a touchdown with nine seconds remaining.

“They made some key plays in critical situations,” New England coach Bill Belichick said of Tennessee’s defense. “In the red area on third down, ultimately those plays were probably the difference in the game.”

It was also after the goal-line stand that the Titans turned to Henry in earnest. They put together a seven-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that gave them the lead at halftime. Those seven plays were six Henry runs for 53 yards and one Henry reception for 22 yards.

There was little else for offensive coordinator Arthur Smith to do given that Tannehill and the passing game – particularly the wide receivers – fell well short of the standard they established over the preceding 10 contests. Tannehill completed just eight of 15 passes for 72 yards, and his leading targets were backup tight ends Anthony Firkser (two receptions, 23 yards) and MyCole Pruitt (two receptions, four yards).

Firkser contributions were particularly notable given that his first catch went for 12 yards and a touchdown that put Tennessee ahead 7-3 in the first quarter. His second was an 11-yard gain on third-and-8 with 2:54 to play, which allowed the Titans to run precious time off the clock.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game,” Henry said. “We knew it was going to be muddy. We just had the mindset to never keep up [and] keep playing together in all three phases.”

Custom Brett Kern Jersey Large

Brett Kern is finally starting to get the recognition he deserves. This year he was voted to the Pro Bowl and named first team All-Pro. Yesterday he was the Titans second best weapon behind Derrick Henry. The Titans posted this video on Twitter earlier today. I thought it deserved it’s own post here at MCM:

The last punt was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. The special teams units as a whole were fantastic last night. There was so much talk heading into this game about how much of a problem the New England special teams were going to be. The Titans had absolutely no issues with them.

Custom Dennis Kelly Jersey Large

When the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans square off in Week 15 for first place in the AFC South, there will be two brothers standing on opposite sides of the field.

On one sideline will be Titans tackle Dennis Kelly, and on the other will be Kelly’s brother Tim, who is the offensive coordinator for the Texans.

Twitter reacts to Titans Wild Card win over Patriots

This isn’t the first time the two brothers will be pitted against one another in the Titans-Texans rivalry, but it is the first time that Tim Kelly will be the offensive coordinator for Houston. In previous years, Tim was an assistant to Texans head coach, Bill O’Brien.

According to Mark Lane of Texans Wire, Tim does plan on catching up with his brother on the field before the game, but prior to that both Dennis and Tim are too busy preparing to beat each other in the upcoming game at Nissan Stadium on Sunday.

“During the week, we’re both pretty focused on taking care of business,” Kelly said. “I’ll make sure I go and say hello to him before the game.”

Also per Lane, there is expected to be about 60 people specifically attending the game to root for the brothers, but Tim joked that Dennis would have to pay for his tickets.

Even with the importance of this game and everything that is in the balance, Tim made sure to note how proud he is of his brother.

“It’s a pretty cool situation to be able to watch your brother play in the NFL, let alone have to prepare against him and get ready to play him,” said Kelly. “So, very proud of everything he’s accomplished and it’s definitely a pretty cool moment to be able to see him on the other sideline, that’s for sure.”

Dennis finished as the No. 18 tackle in the NFL last season, per Pro Football Focus, as he was filling in for an injured Jack Conklin.

Kelly got some time as a starter at left tackle this season during Taylor Lewan‘s four-game suspension, but has since been relegated to a backup role after Lewan’s return in Week 5.

That hasn’t diminished Kelly’s importance, though, as the Titans have found out first hand just how important it is to have such a talented tackle like Kelly as depth with the injuries they have sustained along the offensive line throughout the season.

Kelly, who is set to be a free agent in 2020, is just one of many players the Titans have to make a decision on next offseason. And, with the Texans possibly looking for help on the O-line in 2020, there’s a possibility that Tim and Kelly are together in Houston next season.

Custom Taylor Lewan Jersey Large

Ahead of the New England Patriots’ AFC Wild Card matchup with the Titans, Tom Brady posted a lion-themed hype video to get his teammates and fans pumped for the playoffs.

Let’s just say that the hype video didn’t pan out exactly how Brady would have hoped.

The Titans defeated the Patriots, 20-13, in Foxborough — sending the Patriots into an offseason of uncertainty. But in the meantime, the Titans’ Taylor Lewan is enjoying the Patriots’ loss.

Shortly after the game, Lewan took to Instagram and posted his own version of Brady’s hype video. He included the caption: “You wanted hyenas you got (expletive) hyenas. #ForTheBoys! #NoBadDays”

The final frame of the video included the final score because of course it did.

The Titans face the Ravens in Saturday’s Divisional round.

Custom Jonnu Smith Jersey Large

FOXBOROUGH — While Derrick Henry is the NFL’s rushing king, Ryan Tannehill posted the league’s highest passer rating, and A.J. Brown is a legitimate Rookie of the Year candidate, the Patriots aren’t forgetting about Jonnu Smith.

The third-year tight end flies under the radar in the Titans offense, but Bill Belichick was lofty in his praise for Smith on Thursday morning.

“He’s just a really good tight end,” Belichick said. “Can do a lot of things. Blocks well. Runs well. Is a good receiver. Played him at tailback, he looked pretty good back there. He’s a very athletic player. Hard to tackle. Catches the ball well.

“(He’s) great after the catch, probably the best in the league. I mean, I can’t imagine anyone better than him after the catch.”

Smith has 35 grabs for 439 yards and three touchdowns, and bringing him down is clearly a point of emphasis for the Patriots defense.

Heck, tackling every Titan will be.

“Obviously, they’ve got a lot of guys that can beat you vertical, but you watch them – it’s a quick slant or a slim post and A.J. Brown catches it, now he breaks a tackle and now you’re trying to catch a guy that you’re not going to catch,” Devin McCourty said. “Jonnu Smith – the guy that people really don’t talk about a lot in that offense – he has a toss-play for 60 yards, he has a quick slant for like another 50 yards.

“A lot of it is going to come down to, obviously, you can’t let the ball behind. You can’t let your guys run by you. We’ve got to do a good job when they make catches of everyone getting to the ball and tackling because they’ve got a lot of big, strong, fast guys on that team, a lot of guys that don’t really look like they fit in the position they’re in.”

Custom Rashaan Evans Jersey Large

Former NFL player and current NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger frequently posts film study on Twitter, and today he chose Rashaan Evans making three consecutive tackles as the Tennessee Titans shut down the New England Patriots on the goal line. Take a look.

Money quote: “I just think Alabama people hate Georgia people.”

The first thing that comes to mind is that Rashaan is a bona fide NFL superstar. He has always had plenty of athleticism, but that innate ability to diagnose and then finish the tackle is going to make him a ton of money. The second thing that comes to mind is just how much Alabama missed having such a veteran LB in the middle this season. With Dylan Moses returning along with Christian Harris and Shane Lee having a year under their belts, perhaps we will get to see this type of play in 2020.

In any case, way to show out Rashaan.

Roll Tide.

Custom Dane Cruikshank Jersey Large

Dane Cruikshank didn’t play on special teams during his college days at Arizona.

But Titans brass saw something in the 6-foot-1 inch, 209-pounder that convinced them he could be effective. He was a versatile defender in college, after all, playing multiple positions in the secondary.

“We saw the speed,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said ahead of his team’s Week 14 matchup against the Raiders on Sunday (3:25 p.m., CBS), “and the willingness to go in there and tackle were things that we thought that he could translate into a good special teams player.”

So the safety arrived in Nashville last year after the Titans traded up to draft him in the fifth round and was promptly thrown into the special teams mix.

“I’m not going to lie,” Cruikshank said, “I didn’t like it. Like, I’d never played special teams.”

It didn’t stop him from thrusting himself fully into the challenge of the new role.

Cruikshank played just 4% of the Titans’ defensive snaps last year, per Pro Football Reference, but 49% of special teams snaps.

This year, the disparity is even greater: 1% of defensive snaps, 80% of special teams snaps.

And now there are campaigns on social media to get him voted into the Pro Bowl.

“I feel like special teams is just based off effort,” Cruikshank said. “You just have to be willing to beat the man in front of you. You know what I’m saying? And want to be dominant … I want the coaches, after they see the film, to say, ‘Dane’s working hard. Dane can’t be stopped.’ Or, ‘We’ve got to game plan around Dane.’ I want to cause chaos out there; you know what I’m saying? That’s what I try to do.”

Well, he’s doing it.

The shining example came against the Colts last Sunday when Cruikshank jumped the snap count and blocked Adam Vinatieri’s 43-yard field goal attempt that Tye Smith recovered for the Titans before running in for a 63-yard touchdown.

But that was merely the continuation of a season-long trend of special teams excellence.

On punts, Cruikshank has thrived at gunner, often beating double teams to race down the field for a tackle on punts by Brett Kern. Cruikshank said he’s watched a lot of film of New England’s Matt Slater and Justin Bethel, a pair gunners who have gone to multiple Pro Bowls.

Cruikshank has eight total tackles this season (including five solo), all of which have come on special teams. He also blocked an extra point in Week 9 against the Panthers.
