3 reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles will lose to the Tennessee Titans
There are plenty of reasons to be concerned about the Titans match-up with the Eagles on Sunday. However Authentic Ryan Succop Jersey , there are also quite a few reasons to be optimistic. Brandon Gowton, the smartest man on the internet and manager of Bleeding Green Nation, gives us his 3 reasons that the Eagles will lose to the Titans on Sunday.THREE REASONS WHY THE EAGLES WILL LOSE:1) Jim Schwartz’s defense struggles on the roadPhiladelphia’s defense plays very well at the home. Since the beginning of the 2016 season, the Eagles have allowed just 13.8 points per game when playing at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are 17-3 in that stretch. Playing on the road has been a different story for Schwartz’s unit, however. In that same time frame, the Eagles are allowing 24.3 points per game in away matchups. They’re 7-10 in those contests. The Eagles obviously don’t have the same crowd noise advantage to help their pass rush in road games. That’s a bit of a concern going up a Titans offensive line that’s allowed the fewest quarterback hits through Week 3. Philly’s defense is very reliant on getting to the quarterback. It’s something they’re typically very good at doing considering they lead the NFL in pressures generated. But Marcus Mariota’s mobility presents the Eagles with a challenge they won’t face on most weeks. His ability to avoid pressure and take off running should be a concern for the Eagles. Since 2017, the Eagles have surrendered 282 rushing yards (6.6 yards per rush attempt) and one touchdown to mobile quarterbacks. 33 of those yards came on a run by Andrew Luck last weekend. 2) Carson Wentz might continue to be rustyWentz showed plenty of encouraging signs in his return to the field last week. But he also showed a lot of mental rust. Wentz threw an interception when he stared down Zach Ertz. He got the ball out late a little too often which caused some sacks and incompletions. I have complete confidence Wentz will improve over the course of this season. But it might take him more than just one game before he’s completely shaken the rust off. While I don’t think the Titans’ defense is a juggernaut just yet, the unit has performed well under new head coach Mike Vrabel and veteran defensive coordinator Dean Pees. Tennessee’s defensive line ranks 10th in pressures generated, per Pro Football Focus. The defense obviously did a great job of shutting down Blake Bortles, who had played well in Week 2 Youth Quinton Spain Jersey , on the road last Sunday. The Titans might be able to stifle Wentz at times. It doesn’t help the Eagles that they’re still missing some skill players (Darren Sproles, Mike Wallace, and maybe more). 3) Special teams could be a factorThe Titans rank fourth overall in special teams DVOA while the Eagles check in at 29th. Tennessee is averaging 10.3 yards on punt returns and they’ve returned one kickoff for a touchdown. The Eagles, meanwhile, are averaging just 4.2 yards per punt return and 19 yards per kick return. Last week, the Eagles used Corey Clement at punt returner in place of Darren Sproles and he muffed multiple return attempts. Perhaps the wet and rainy conditions were to blame but it’s not like he has a ton of returner experience so that’s something to keep an eye on. If this turns out to be an ugly game, a special teams mistake could make all the difference. Entering Sunday’s game at Tennessee, the Ravens are bringing a revamped receiving corps featuring wide receivers John Brown, Michael Crabtree, Willie Snead and tight ends Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst. Combined with a backfield featuring Alex Collins and Javorious Allen Kevin Byard Jersey , and the offense has life it didn’t have in previous seasons. One of the X-factors has been John Brown.

Previously with the Cardinals, Brown’s battle with sickle cell trait limited him on the field and he never fully realized his potential in Arizona despite some flashes. With a second chance in Baltimore, Brown has realized his potential and has emerged as the top receiver for the Ravens. He’s caught 19 passes for 396 yards, three touchdowns and 20.8 yards per catch. Brown has established himself as one of the top vertical threats in the active NFL, and that’s something the Titans need to be concerned going into Sunday’s showdown in Nashville. gamepass.nfl.comAgainst the Steelers, Brown had a season best 116 yards on three catches, adding a touchdown to the mix. As a vertical threat, he’s given the nickname “Smokey Brown” because of his ability to burn defensive backs downfield. Here, Browns performs a double move on rookie safety Terrell Edmunds then burns him with his speed on a 71-yard pass play. It’s a simple play from the receiver, but one that’s extremely effective due to his technique and quickness. gamepass.nfl.comAgainst the Bengals http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/aut...son-jersey , Brown had two sensational catches that showcased who he is as a receiver. Joe Flacco throws this one into triple coverage and it should be picked off, but it goes through the hands of the defensive back and into Brown’s.This is a special play from Brown because it highlights both his timing and concentration and his ability on contested catches. It’s safe to say he was flawless at the catch point and shifted momentum for a while in Baltimore’s favor.gamepass.nfl.comHere, Brown again performs a double move, but this time the coverage is far better. Flacco still gives his receiver a chance to make a play on it, and with hands in his grill, Brown is still able to haul this one in. That he’s able to concentrate and haul this one in while keeping two feet in bounds is sensational. Brown went off in this game and in general has done that for the Ravens.John Brown’s route running, excellence in tight coverage, and speed have made him a tremendous downfield receiver in Baltimore. He presents a tough matchup for the Titans in the slot and as a wideout, so it’s on guys like Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson to shut him and the Ravens’ receiving corps down.
