The Titans played on Thursday night, which means on this fine Sunday, we can sit back, relax, not feel the stress of impending disaster, and watch NFL football around the league.
At noon, Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes square off in what could be a very exciting game. Luke Falk will be starting for the Jets against the Patriots today, and Josh Rosen will be making his first start for Miami against the Dallas Cowboys.
Other games I’ll be watching closely include the Falcons at Colts, as the Titans head to Atlanta next weekend, and the Bengals at Bills, to get a head start looking at the Titans’ Week 5 opponent (Buffalo).
The afternoon slate includes Houston traveling to Los Angeles to play the Titans Week 7 opponent, the Chargers, as well as Daniel Jones’ first career start against the Buccaneers. Two other backup quarterbacks play this afternoon in Mason Rudolph for Pittsburgh against the 49ers and some combination of Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill for New Orleans against the Seahawks.
And the Rams play the Browns in what could be a pretty fun game of Sunday Night Football to close out the day.
From the perspective of a Titans fan... if the Texans to lose to the Chargers (very possible) and the Colts to the Falcons (also very possible), the sky won’t be falling on the 2019 season quite as much as it seems. Speaking of that, on our last podcast, James and I discussed our “sky is falling” overreactions to Thursday night’s loss, flipped the coin and talked reasons to stay optimistic, and assessed blame for the Titans disastrous performance. We concluded by examining Mariota’s future in Nashville. You can check that episode out below...
