Welp the Mike Vrabel era has officially arrived and it’s everything the Tennessee Titans hoped it would be. Sure the Titans have great talent on the defensive side of the ball but Vrabel is getting the most out of those guys and it makes this unit truly special. For example the past two weeks the Titans have schemed up the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. How anyone could go 2-0 against those teams is truly a Cinderella run and clearly Vrabel knows how to take away his opponent’s biggest strengths.
For Baltimore that was their rushing attack and tight ends over the middle. So without those two options off the table it forced the Ravens to drop back Lamar Jackson 59 times. It’s hard to win with so many passing attempts and it’s due to the fact that your offense becomes unbalanced. Yeah Jackson still rushed for over 100 yards but it’s almost impossible to keep him in check. Especially when it’s a passing play and he tucks the football and runs with it. All you have to do is look at the scoreboard and you can see the true story. The underdog knocked off one of the Super Bowl favorites and these playoffs are getting really interesting now.
