Will Levis likely out for the Titans; Ryan Tannehill to start

Multiple people reported today that Will Levis will miss the Tennessee Titans game against the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow. That means that Ryan Tannehill will be back as the starter for the Titans. We have pretty much known that all week, but now it is all but official. Tannehill started the first six games of the season before getting hurt and being replaced by Levis.

The Titans opened as 2.5-point underdogs at DraftKings Sportsbook. That number had moved to 3.5 this morning but sits at 3 as of this writing. It is really hard to see a scenario where the Titans can stay in this game. They are not good and are really beat up. Levis had done pretty well at moving around behind this offensive line and avoiding being sacked before last week when he was sacked seven times and injured. Tannehill doesn’t have that same pocket mobility at this point in his career.

Look for the Titans to do a lot of what they did last week - hand the ball off to Derrick Henry and watch him bang his head into a wall. While Henry isn’t the running back he was a couple of years ago, he has no chance behind the worst offensive line in the league. They should give Tyjae Spears some of those carries this week. We will see if they actually do.

I’m having trouble coming up with a reason to watch this game. The only reason to watch this team over the last month or so has been Levis. Now that he is out, there just isn’t much else that is important. I guess tomorrow we can hope that Treylon Burks can make some plays. His development is really the only thing that can carry forward to next year with the offense.
