The head coach of the Titans, Mike Vrabel, says he's hopeful that Delanie Walker, Jayon Brown, Jurrell Casey, and Corey Davis, will get back to work after the bye week. If these 4 players are healthy again for the next game then the only starting player still out will be Cornerback Malcolm Bryant. The team will be at near full strength. But Malcolm Butler is one of their best cornerbacks so it's a big deal that he's out and his absence really could cause the Titans to lose games. His replacement is LeShaun Sims who has been struggling mightily. Quarterbacks can pick on him. But I don't have to worry about this game until week 12 so there's plenty of time to see where things are at.

No!

:)

OK, that was an easy one. But yeah I think they could well lose again, for example to the Ravens (Dec. 2).

I'd like to watch that game. Lamar Jackson versus the 49ers D.

Sure to be fun.

Yeah, absolutely. Could be a great game. Lamar manhandled the Pats so it's definitely possible he'll do the same to the 9ers.

Good to see. I remember you being concerned about this game around a month ago.
If this post is to me then I gotta tell you that I was very concerned about the Chiefs. They're a good football team with an elite QB.

The 49ers have been rebuilding for years and now it's paying off. I think they will lose another game or two at most.

The Indianapolis Colts lost Andrew Luck before the season and I thought the team would collapse. They've actually done pretty good without Luck but in my opinion their success has been something of a fluke. IIMO the Colts are a worse team than their record indicates and losing to Miami has reinforced my opinion about them. And to add to the Colt's problems T.Y.Hilton and Parris Campbell won't be playing Sunday and the Jaguars are coming off their bye week so the Jaguars are rested and healthy.

I'm taking the Jaguars over the Colts at Indianapolis.

Okay mate, and I'll go out on a limb and take the Cardinals over the 49ers even though the Niners are 10.5 point favorites.

Titans have the bye, hey?

Sounds like a good pick, +10.5 is a lot of points.

That said, I'll take the Vikings -10 vs the Broncos.

I'm also liking the Baltimore Raves at home against the Houston Texans. The Texans have a good offense but their defense isn't looking real good.

Midway through the 4th quarter Baltimore is beating Houston 34 to 0.

But with 12 minutes to go in Indianapolis the Colts are beating Jacksonville 31 to 7. And the Colts are doing this without T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell -their top 2 receivers. I don't understand how the Colts are able to win games. They don't have many stars (house-hold name type players) on the field but they'll probably win anyway. They do have a badass OL but that's about it.

I'm taking a refreshed and rehabilitated Titans team over the Jaguars in Tennessee. This could be an old-fashioned ass-whipping.

I hope so. That will get the Titans over .500 and possibly bring on a play-off run.

Go light blue!
