Mike Garafolo of NFL Network is reporting that Jeffery Simmons is expected to play tonight:
#Titans DT Jeffery Simmons is expected to play tonight against the #Packers, sources tell me and @RapSheet. One of the top defensive linemen in the game is back after missing last week’s win over the #Broncos.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 17, 2022
What makes Simmons so good is that in addition to being a dominant pass rusher he is a great run defender as well. The Packers offense is predicated on the rushing attack with Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. Having Simmons in the middle makes that task a lot harder on those guys.
I’ve said all day that I feel good about this match-up. This makes me feel even better. If you are the betting type, run over to DraftKings Sportsbook and get Titans +3.5 and their money line. There is some good value in that.
Here’s to hoping that we get more good injury news on Amani Hooker and Bud Dupree after the mini-bye!
