The Buffalo Bills play host to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in yet another matchup that looks daunting for Buffalo. Of the Bills’ first five opponents White Thurman Thomas Jerseys , only the Minnesota Vikings (2-2) are not above .500 currently. If the Bills are going to pull off an upset victory this Sunday, they will need to control Tennessee’s key players throughout the matchup, something they were unable to do last week when the Green Bay Packers dismantled them at Lambeau Field. The Titans have a solid young core of skill players that will present unique challenges for the Bills’ defense.Here are the five Titans players we’ll be watching this weekend.QB Marcus MariotaThe franchise quarterback in Tennessee has had a better career so far than Jameis Winston, his fellow NFL Draft Class of 2015 alumnus, but Mariota has still had his ups and downs over his three-plus years in the league. He is dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing arm that has caused parts of his throwing hand to go numb, which obviously has made throwing the ball more difficult. In his first two outings this year, he combined to complete 21-of-34 passes for only 203 yards and 2 interceptions. Last week, in a 26-23 overtime victory against the Philadelphia Eagles, Mariota went off, completing 30-of-43 passes for 330 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. He added 10 rushes for 46 yards and another score on the ground. If Mariota’s ulnar nerve issue is subsiding Thurman Thomas Jerseys 2019 , or if he is just learning to manage it, he could continue to flourish. In order for the Titans to advance farther than they did last season, Mariota will need to continue to perform like he did last week. If Buffalo wants to upset Tennessee this week, they’ll need to make sure that doesn't happen.RB Dion LewisWhile neither Lewis nor bruising tailback Derrick Henry have averaged more than 3.3 yards per carry on the season, it’s Lewis whose talents as a receiver make me the most worried this week. Lewis is a slippery pass-catcher out of the backfield, and he can cause problems for even the most seasoned linebackers. Rookie Tremaine Edmunds will have to combine with second-year man Matt Milano in corralling Lewis whenever the scat-back is on the field. He has caught 18 passes this season on 21 targets, totaling 116 yards receiving in addition to his 143 rushing yards. WR Corey DavisThe big second-year man out of Western Michigan caught his first career touchdown pass last week, a game-winner in overtime against the Eagles. After missing five games during his rookie year due to injury and struggling with inconsistent play, the young Titan is showing why the team drafted him fifth overall in 2017. Davis made 34 catches in his rookie season, totaling 375 yards in the process. In 2018, he already has 22 receptions for 312 yards and 1 touchdown. Tre’Davious White will need to have a solid performance against the 6’3” Davis, one that looks more like his day against Stefon Diggs than his afternoon against Davante Adams. DT Jurrell CaseyThe big defensive tackle leads the Titans in sacks this season with 3 White Bruce Smith Jerseys , and he already has 19 combined tackles through 4 games. With favorable matchups against all three of Buffalo’s offensive linemen, Casey should be salivating about adding to that sack total. Throw in quarterback Josh Allen’s inability to diagnose blitz packages properly and the Bills could be in for a long day if they don’t contain number 99 on Sunday.KR Darius JenningsThe backup wide receiver only has had two chances to return a kickoff this season, but he converted one of them into a 94-yard touchdown in Tennessee’s 27-20 loss on opening day against the Miami Dolphins. The Bills would be wise to have kicker Stephen Hauschka boot the ball out of the end zone each time he has the opportunity this weekend. A story that’s definitely flying under the radar this week is that the Buffalo Bills will be starting newly acquired quarterback Derek Anderson against the Indianapolis Colts this week. Anderson has a few cards stacked against him this week and the anticipation is that the Bills will rely heavily on their running game. The logical counter by the Colts will be to muck up the running lanes with nose tackle Al Woods. The starting tackle hasn’t broken the 60% barrier in snaps this year, but may do so courtesy of the Bills “not quite perfect” quarterback situation. Play 1There’s a few parallels between the Colts’ defense and that of the Bills. Under that lens, Al Woods’ closest comparable player is Star Lotulelei. Like Lotulelei, he’s often asked to occupy two lineman to create opportunities for others. On this play, Woods shows good aptitude for the job, making two Jets linemen back up nearly all the way to Sam Darnold. Play 2The play above is a great illustration of the role of a space eating tackle. Al Woods occupies two linemen and gets them to shift to his left. This creates a running lane but linebacker Darius Leonard is there to fill the gap. Without Woods, one of those lineman is there to spring Isaiah Crowell. Play 3If you’re looking for a good way to make a quarterback nervous it’s to win a two on three this cleanly. Woods gets low and with a little help from a friend, drives three Texans into Deshaun Watson’s lap. Play 4Al Woods needs to be accounted for when moving sideline to sideline. The Washington line flows right to block for Adrian Peterson. Center Chase Roullier seems to be moving Woods where he wants the nose tackle to end up. However, Woods plants a foot and cuts back. The entire time he’s been moving he makes sure to maintain enough space to disengage from the block. In an instant he’s made the tackle. Play 5Similar to the last play, Al Woods is able to disengage from his block and chases down the runner. Good lateral speed helps him close the distance and get in on the tackle. Play 6Indianapolis has Al Woods do this quite a bit. After engaging briefly in front of him Bruce Smith Jerseys 2019 , he quickly races to the edge. For this play, the pass is off before he can become a factor, but in general he is attempting to rush the passer when asked to make this move. While Woods has good speed for his size, this tactic has not been effective. By the time he gets to where he can be disruptive the play has usually already been decided. Play 7Al Woods is a solid player who can create some havoc at times. He is not a dominant force however, and loses this match-up due to simple leverage. Nick Martin pushes up on Woods and is able to stand the nose tackle up, making him a non-factor on the play. Play 8The Bills will have some opportunities to run assuming they can scheme around what the Colts will be up to. Our focal point Al Woods is making sure there’s space for his linebacker Anthony Walker to be able to shoot into whichever lane running back Lamar Miller chooses. A key block by the tackle sets up Miller to kick it outside while also closing Walker off from the play. In ConclusionAl Woods is a roughly 50% of the time player, but comes in to help stop the opponent’s rushing attack. With the Bills offense already being run heavy and starting a quarterback that required a good dusting before arriving, it’s a safe bet the Colts will lean on their run stopping unit. Buffalo will need to be mix it up to take advantage of running lanes around Woods. A few big gains like that in Play 8 will help give Derek Anderson the breathing room he’ll be looking for.
