Titans vs Commanders Highlights

The Tennessee Titans will look to the 2022 season as a chance to build and stay in the Super Bowl window. They had a fearsome defense last season, with Harold Landry having a career-high 12 sacks and Jeffrey Simmons and Denico Autry also contributing. These three all return, so they should be able to get back to being an imposing unit. The offense has more questions, with many putting the blame for their disappointing playoff exit in the hands of QB Ryan Tannehill who threw three interceptions. Rookie Treylon Burks needs to be a star right away to kickstart the passing game and replace AJ Brown’s role.

Defensively, the Washington Commanders look similar to last season’s unit. They are bringing back all their starters from last year’s group. Those starters had promise, but they ultimately underwhelmed, ranking 25th in points allowed and 32nd in passing touchdowns allowed. On the offensive side of the ball, Coach Riviera has shaken things up more, bringing in Carson Wentz from the Indianapolis Colts and adding Brian Robinson to the backfield. Combining these additions with Terry McClaurin should improve the scoring power of a team that struggled in that aspect in 2021.

With these two sides coming from opposite conferences, they have only met 13 times in their histories. Tennessee holds the edge 7-6 and also won their last meeting 25-16 in 2018. It is likely the odds will favor a repeat, with Tennessee being a far more complete team, and they should take care of business here and get the W.
