The Tennessee Titans will open a new era on Sunday afternoon in Miami against the Dolphins

New uniforms and a new coaching staff — this team definitely has a different feel to it than last year’s. The only problem is that we still don’t know what the finished product is going to look like.On paper Womens DaQuan Jones Jersey , the Titans are more talented than the Dolphins. I don’t think many people would contest that statement. However, Tennessee limped through the preseason, unable to create or develop any chemistry with the first team offense or defense. Key players like Delanie Walker, Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Rashaan Evans, Harold Landry and others missed some time during camp or the preseason. Most of those names should return this week, giving us our first true glimpse of what the first team will look like. The oddsmakers aren’t all that thrilled with the Titans at this point. Tennessee is just a one point favorite over the Dolphins as of Wednesday. Part of that is playing on the road, but I think another part of it is the pure unknown of what this Titans team will be in 2018. Another part could be the injuries which I mentioned above. Key MatchupCameron Wake vs. Dennis KellyJack Conklin was activated to be a part of the initial 53 man roster, but it would probably be a major upset if he played. Изображение
In steps Dennis Kelly, who has filled the right tackle role in his absence. If he gets the go on Sunday, he can expect to see plenty of Cameron Wake, who is still getting it done at 36 years old. That’s a problematic matchup for Tennessee and Marcus Mariota Authentic Will Compton Jersey , who knows all about Wake. Back in 2015, Wake got to Mariota four times, capitalizing on a matchup with Jeremiah Poutasi. That constant pressure coming right at Mariota’s eyes was enough to cripple the Titans, leading to a 38-10 Miami win. I wouldn’t expect this staff to leave Kelly out on an island like Ken Whisenhunt did with Poutasi, however. Look for plenty of blocking help from the backs and tight ends, along with plenty of quick screens to neutralize that pass rush. The PickTitans -1I don’t feel great about this one, to be honest. There are too many unknowns for me, even though the Dolphins project to finish in the bottom third of the league. A road game in the Miami heat could present a tough environment for a Titans team that has yet to put all of their pieces together. Remember, Ryan Tannehill is healthy once again for the Dolphins, which should provide some stability for an offense that struggled through 2017 with Jay Cutler.I’m going to rely on the fact that the Titans are the more talented team here. It feels like one of those games where they’re able to find a way late. Matt LaFleur’s offense has largely been kept under wraps to this point too, adding another layer of unknown for the Dolphins. The loss of Ndamukong Suh should open up some running lanes for Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis, which should create some play action opportunities for Marcus Mariota. I think the Dolphins are catching the Titans at a good time, but Tennessee should have enough talent to win a close one.Yannick Ngakoue is becoming one of the deadliest defensive ends in football What more is there to say about the Jaguars defense? From Calais Campbell to Jalen Ramsey, Malik Jackson, AJ Bouye ... vis-jersey , Telvin Smith, Myles Jack, Yannick Ngakoue, Tashaun Gipson, Barry Church, and Marcell Dareus, the team is loaded with defensive talent in the front seven and in the secondary. Of those players, Campbell, Jackson, Bouye, Gipson, Church and Dareus were all free agent/mid season acquisitions. One of the team’s homegrown talents experienced a breakout year in 2017. That talent is defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. In his sophomore season, Ngakoue created 12 sacks while leading the league in forced fumbles with six (excluding the forced fumble he had on Ben Roethlisberger in the postseason). Ngakoue cemented himself as one of the Jaguars’ best pass rushers, forming a deadly combo with fellow defensive end (and defensive tackle) Calais Campbell; The two combined for 26.5 sacks in 2017.In his first two seasons, Ngakoue already has 20 career sacks ... rea-jersey , an impressive feat for a third-round pick. Last season, he wasted no time in making an impact, sacking the QB twice in week 1 at Houston while also forcing two fumbles. He would go on to have three more games where he posted at least two sacks.Ngakoue did not post a single sack against the Titans in the two matchups last season, but don’t let that fool you. The Titans still need to keep an eye on Ngakoue as he is becoming a force at the defensive end position.The new Karate Kid movie looks Jaguars’ front seven, needless to say, is stacked, allowing Ngakoue to show off his skill set with relative ease. Ngakoue’s signature move as a pass rusher is his cross chop, where he puts his hand up and swipes away the lineman’s hands to create leverage, then chops him to leave the lineman in the dust.Yannick Ngakoue has a very specific set of’s first four sacks on the year came from this chop move. It’s important to note that on both of the plays above, Ngakoue’s footwork advances him outside of the left tackle, allowing him to set up the cross chop perfectly. Good God that doesn’t just need to rely on the chop to create pressure, though, as shown up here. He uses slower, more hesitant footwork on this play, hopping around the left tackle and getting easy access to the quarterback. He chops the ball out of Deshone Kizer’s hands ... cop-jersey , and though it’s recovered by the Browns, Ngakoue’s impact on the play was there.The Browns game was one of two games (week 1 at Houston) where Ngakoue forced two fumbles. It was also one of two games (Week 7 at Indianapolis) where he put up 2.5 sacks. Ngakoue’s techniques and pure athleticism are both matched by his consistency to put up dangerous numbers.Like Campbell, Ngakoue is also a dangerous pass rusher even when he’s moved around the front.Excellent sack on the greatest quarterback of our this stunt, Ngakoue is lined up at defensive tackle in the A-gap between the left guard and center. Instead of rushing there, Ngakoue uses the twist to go up the B-gap between the right guard and right tackle. He jump cuts the guard and swims by him, using his speed to chase down Jimmy Garoppolo for the sack. This is easily one of the best plays of Ngakoue’s career, and is a perfect showcasing of his quickness and power.Finally, we must end Ngakoue’s highlight reel on this play against the Bengals. How he’s able to knock down the running back after losing his balance I have no idea, but this is spectacular either way.He got.....JACKED UP! Ngakoue is on his way to becoming a premiere pass rusher. His hands, footwork, power, and technique to get past the offensive line give the Jaguars a dominant young defensive end with the ability to consistently win outside leverage on a front that already causes enough problems on its own. He may not be the Jaguars’ most valuable defender (yet), but he doesn’t need to be considering how stacked that roster is.A force Jacksonville can rely on to cause sacks and pop the ball out of the quarterback’s hands, Ngakoue is a problem the Titans must look to eliminate whenever they face off against the Jaguars in 2018.
