No. 4: The Tennessee Titans are a formidable foe after landing Julio Jones
The Tennessee Titans make a blockbuster move in the offseason going out and signing two-time 1st Team All-Pro wideout Julio Jones. This was a very bold statement from the Titans in the offseason after losing to the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card. The Titans did lose wideout Corey Davis to the New York Jets, but again that was quickly forgotten once Julio Jones signed.
The Titans also went out and added Josh Reynolds to the wideouts making this a very good group. AJ Brown, who was drafted by the Titans out of Ole Miss has been an exciting player for the Titans at the receiver position.
This Tennessee Titans offense is very versatile.
In the backfield they have superhuman Derrick Henry who was the leading rusher in 2020 with 2,027 yards. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has revamped his career since arriving in Tennessee even beating the Kansas City Chiefs in the regular season. The Titans have some notable names on defense and that’s especially true in their linebacker group. The staples are Harold Landry III, and Rashaan Evans. The Titans go out and sign Bud Dupree to a lucrative deal coming over from the Pittsburg Steelers.
Some would consider the Titans defense as a weakness, but they have some very good veteran leadership mixed in with some very good young talent.
This game comes in at #4 on the list of toughest games on the Chiefs 2021 schedule. The Chiefs will play the Tennessee Titans on the road in Week 7. This will be a very tough road game for sure, and with the addition of one of the most elite wideouts in the league it should make it that much more of a challenge.
In 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs went into Tennessee and lost in 35-32 in a very good football game. With fans being back in the stands, and the Titans playing the defending AFC Champions should make for a very good matchup.
