It didn’t look good for Tennessee in the first half. They had less than 60 yards on the offensive and could not show any points for it. They were consistently in third place and long, couldn’t run the ball and there was noticeable rust in both Julio Jones and AJ Brown. That changed in the second half when the Titans marched right across the field for a field goal. AJ Brown got hot shortly afterwards.
When AJ Brown got going, the whole offensive started to click. It opened lanes in the running game, leaving room for other receivers, and the Titans looked almost like the same team ranked 2nd in the league by offensive DVOA in 2020. AJ Brown continued to make great games when the Titans needed them most. That gave Ryan Tannehill the confidence to cast his way and anticipate his throws. Remember, AJ Brown and Julio Jones haven’t trained much due to injuries. It’s hard to have the chemistry in the field without repetitions during the week. Your training week was the first half.
Although the defense gave up a touchdown less than three minutes from time, you never had the feeling that the Titans would lose in the second half after their style of play. They started their 2 minute game win with a dagger concept for AJ Brown. This dagger concept is one of the Titans’ favorites. It involves the use of heavy personnel with a tough game action fake. Then the two receivers have a trench and a deep post outside. The linebackers appear on the run as a fake and behind them there is a window to be excavated. A few games later, Tannehill started to bring Tennesee within field goal range.
AJ Brown’s 11 catches for 145 yards gave the Titans air to breathe in front of the rising Indianapolis Colts. With two games remaining against the Dolphins and Texans, Tennessee only has to win one to claim the AFC South crown. If AJ Brown continues to play like he did tonight and Derrick Henry and the Offensive get well, they’ll be the team no one wants to play off against.
